• I see you are using wish.. does anyone also use Shein or dress lily? They have some great bargains on clothes..

  • Did you read the full unabridged version or the more modern version? I read the full one for my O’level and to be honest after a while there was a lot of nothing going on..The shorter version should be much better..

  • I bought a hairband today… This is the longest my hair has been for about 30 years and it was blowing all over the place and getting in my eyes so Ive brushed it back and put a hairband on to keep it in place …OH is charmed and loves it…

  • Not sure Id call it enhancing.

    I dont do nail treatments or make up but

    I use moisturiser every day with a sun protector of 30 spf this means at 55 I have virtually no wrinkles.

    Three months is no time at all. Then there will be all the “first times” first birthday without him , first father’s day , first Christmas etc those days will be hard dont be surprised if you suddenly find yourself feeling very emotional on those days.

    I think it’s wonderful that we are all so different and we can all appreciate the styles that we wear and the reasons for that. I know I tend to dress in jeans most of the time but this is what suits my lifestyle, when I lived in London you would have found me in a lot of pencil skirts and rather high heels shoes this sorted my way of life back…[Read more]

    Would you care to explain this to my 10 year old

    My son just had to have a very detailed talk with her about dress and modesty..

    He is not easily phased but he said this talk had him blushing a bit. He noticed that his daughter is getting near puberty and remarked that he would like her to always wear a vest or tshirt…[Read more]

    Can I say depends?

    I mean running about the countryside in hiking books and a floral skirt is not really senisble is it? Quite apart from anything else the gnats and ticks would have a feest on my legs leaving me looking like a walking morse code message.

    So for day to day life yes Im in jeans they are hardwearing, practical, can look nice…[Read more]

  • Good Luck.

    To be honest I wouldnt go for confrontation. She is an expert in manipulation so you are bound to come away from it feeling bad about yourself as if you are the bad person.

    Better to just begin to distance yourself remove them from your social media or say youre taking time off from any FB or twitter and then later open a new account…[Read more]

  • I think you are very wise to follow your diet and yoga @Lafr ..

    So many people are just lounging around watching TV and some are not even getting showered I saw an article that said sales of personal hygine products, like deodorant have fallen sharply YUK… Being at home does not mean being dirty.

  • I have short hair and it’s very thick so once it starts to grow it turns into a real mop.. I had it cut in February just before lock down here,  I’ve already put thinning scissors through it just to keep it a little bit under control but yes it’s growing.

    @KitKatKitty  Keeping my fingers crossed for your friend that it really isn’t covered do keep us updated.

  • Indeed reading about how people are dealing with this in their own words is very different to hearing news articles , I think even when people talk to camera they dont really say what they think..

    Many of the old peoples homes here have put up a special visiting room the resident enters from one end of the room or cabin and the visitor from the…[Read more]

    So how is it all working out?

    Here the intelligent lockdown is being eased slightly… Notice I say slightly but it seems that either the word slightly got mistranslated between Mr Ruttes mouth and the  ears of the people or their brains have shrunken during the lockdown because today (the first shopping day after easing) was an absolute…[Read more]
