    Isn’t it funny how we as women are judged so much by what we wear?

    Many times more than men ever are.  A man can for example just throw on anything and never even get a second look. Where if we did that all eyes would be on us and everyone will think. WOW, she doesn’t look after herself. or she doesn’t know how to dress herself. I have…[Read more]

    Leggings over here are quite a big thing. Most women wear them. Regardless of size shape etc. I wouldn’t say I look bad in them. lol. Well, not as bad as that 🙂

    I never mentioned dresses. Yes, I love dresses in the summer. I actually really like wrap dresses followed by pencil. Which one I wear depends on what the scales said the week…[Read more]

  • A strange question you may wonder?

    Let me explain why I ask.

    During my working life, I always prefered to wear a skirt for work. mainly it was retail-based and I always felt much smarter. But since not being able to work anymore I have found that I just throw on a pair of leggings or jeans in the morning now. It’s not that I don’t care about my…[Read more]


    That’s a really good point actually. When they do reopen are we going to trust the hairdresser to be virus-free? I don’t think anyone has even considered that. I suppose in a way its how much do you want/need your hair done and how much you would put faith in the virus concern is over if your told it is. Without getting too political. ( I…[Read more]

  • It would seem that the site of a hairdresser is going to be a distant memory soon. So I have been reading regarding the current climate that we are going to have to wait at least another couple of months before any of them are going to be open again. I’m going to assume also that to get an appointment once they are is will be like finding a hens…[Read more]

  • Nice shoes. I love shoes. You can never have enough. Not something I would personally wear but they are lovely.

  • Its brown bread for me. I just can’t tolerate it. Its can be such a pain sometimes when your out and you have a sandwich. All they ever do is brown bread. I just end up having either the salad or more often something I really shouldn’t. As I said I’m, not gluten intolerant but It just gives me terrible tummy upset.

    Those Dida,s look…[Read more]

  • Now there’s something. When was the last time you had to show your birth certificate to identify yourself?

    I think it must have been perhaps 15 years ago at least if not much longer. Normally it’s just a driving licence or passport. My passport has expired. One day when im going to travel again ill have to renew it.  Can you even lay your hands…

  • As far as an interruption to life is concerned. I miss seeing my friends. I mean we keep in touch by WhatsApp but it’s just not quite the same. I miss doing my volunteer work. Meeting new people and such like during the course of the day and not being able to feel I’m doing something constructive. I have used skype a lot more. Particularly one…[Read more]

  • Loving those boots TestdummyC.

    When I was younger. Any heel height was fine by me. But I think as you get older your idea on what is practical change. I still love heels but now would never go any higher than 3-inch heels and that’s only for special occasions. Give me a comfy pair of trainers or sandals in the summer and a nice pair of knee-high…[Read more]

  • Have you had to see someone in the medical profession since the virus hit and the whole of the health service went into being fixated on COVID-19?

    On the 15th of March, I got a text from my GP,s surgery. Basically saying we are not having any regular appointments and the surgery is not open other than for matters of absolute…[Read more]

  • Rowena replied to the topic Bra Shopping in the forum Fashion & Lifestyle 4 months, 3 weeks ago

    Bra,s are an instrument of torture.

    I am double cursed. Not only do I have a reasonable C cup but I’m also quite broad across the back. So many of the bras from the likes of Asda just either won’t fit, Have the equivalent to a sack of potatoes hanging out under my arms above the straps or are so uncomfortable I can’t wear them. I have to wear one…[Read more]

  • I’m glad you like the colour. I love it and hope you enjoy it as much as I do when I wear it. It’s quite dark but not to bad. I wear it most days.

  • I think my issue is I have low stomach acid. I find apple cider vinegar seems to help it. I tried many different solutions but that seems to work the best. The doctors just put it down to IBS but that was because they couldn’t find anything wrong. The one thing however they never tested for was stomach ph. I gave up on them and started to try…[Read more]

  • What makes me happy?

    It’s quite simple for me. It’s knowing that I’m alive, content and safe.  I’m still reasonably fit and almost everything still works as it should do.

    I will explain my mantra to life and happiness.

    I suppose to look at what happiness is to you have to look at what makes you unhappy. Not being able to have kids anymore was…[Read more]

  • I love makeup. I have done since the first time I ever tried it with help from my mother. Yes I am one of those women that will not even put the bins out without some makeup on

    I’m a very dark makeup kind of wearer. Almost gothic I suppose. I can pull it off at my age lol.

    As for Lip gloss. I wouldn’t like to leave it on everything.

  • I could kid myself and everyone else that I am so organised its almost an obsession. But in reality, it’s more a case of. “that’s ok where it is” But, and here is the BUT If my OH needs something and can’t find it. I normally know exactly where it is. So I supposed I am organised. it’s just in my own strange form of organisation

  • @Cassandra

    I to have digestive issues. There are more of us than its seen I believe. The silent sufferers if you like.

    A while back I was Tested for lactose and gluten intolerance. Both found to be negative. Its really just a taste thing for me.

    I was using L free milk for a while before the test and found I much prefer its taste as opposed to…[Read more]

  • Tea, Tea, Tea, Did I mention tea?

    I have personally never enjoyed coffee. I cannot see the hype with its specialised coffee shops and such like.

    I myself am decaff now after many years of caffeinated.

    Strong white tea with two sweetex. I can take sugar but choose not to and lactose-free milk when possible.

    I suppose you would say builders tea…[Read more]
