the embarrassing unfeminsty thoughts we sometimes catch ourselves having?

I keep scanning the covers of rubbish glossies newspapers to see if Kate Middleton is pregnant yet blush and I will be very excited when she is.. Double blush I know she is not a breeding horse.. I just can't help myself.

She never had a proper job. She messed around doing very little after her degree. Plenty of men from Eton marry bright women with great careers. At 30 she could be well into a career by now. Her mother and her mother in law are much better examples to women.

Xenia I think it was difficult for her to work as she was followed by the press a lot. She was a buyer for Jigsaw for a while and then joined the family company, I think.

At risk of letting you derail another thread with your crazy... what constitutes a "proper job" in your eyes?

TheDoctrineOfSnatch Fri 07-Dec-12 15:43:37

One where Kate outearned the future King by 1000%?

My daughter';s friend from school for example is a pilot. Kate could have been. Another is a medic. This is what girls from thes tkinds of schools and univerisites become after all that expensive education, not a florified clotheshorse or they set up a business as her mother has done so well. Her mother did not go through all that effort to ensrue her daughter was simply a consort - that is no achievement at all - to marry well. It is a Jane Austen novel type achievement, not something women in 2012 want to achieve.

No, people with expensive fancy educations almost never go on to be totally supported by their family without any kind of proper job or understanding of money other than its use for snorting and purchasing drugs and booze.

Never.

doctrine how much do reckon that would be? I'm considering my options for when the kids start school

Who here would swap places with Kate if you could be the same age as her now? I think everyone here would. She's got pretty looks, really nice clothes, everyone loves her, buys expensive things, she just had a gorgious baby - everything! She has one bad thing in life that is her husband is a baldy. Yuck!

I should imagine that Kates mum is gloriously happy at how things have turned out.
I think, on a documentary about the Middletons, if I remember correctly, Kates gran wanted her offspring to "marry well" and go "higher" in society.

A person who wears themselves out to get rich is a bit silly behaviour imo.
Not saying that anyone on here is doing that.

DoingItOnTheRoofTopWithSanta Fri 07-Dec-12 21:17:40

Would I swap places with her orange?
Hell no, it would be like being a zoo animal.

DoingItOnTheRoofTopWithSanta Fri 07-Dec-12 21:18:17

Actually quite a bit like being a panda, everyone staring at you and willing you to breed already.

TerrariaMum Fri 07-Dec-12 21:34:30

Swap places with her? TBH, that would be my worst niughtmare.

On topic of thread, however, I have one more. I am watching Enchanted atm and enjoying it.

TheDoctrineOfSnatch Sat 08-Dec-12 07:06:27

YY terraria and Santa - I think it would be awful.

TrillsCarolsOutOfTune Sat 08-Dec-12 10:42:03

I am about the same age as her OrangePanda and my answer is hell no

Also are you sure you're on the right thread? You wrote "she just had a gorgious baby", which is not true...

SamuraiCindy Sat 08-Dec-12 17:04:51

No way would I swap places. I have two beautiful, adorable children, a husband who loves me and who I love,and who has a great career, a family that is BRILLIANT, a new house in the country that I am building, principles and faith that I live my life by, and also...my PRIVACY! And you can't put a price on that!

SamuraiCindy Sat 08-Dec-12 17:05:11

Oh...soon to be three children I should add!!! smile

OrangePanda Sat 08-Dec-12 18:34:18

Trills there was a photo of the child in the newspaper a few days ago

RiaUnderTheMistletoe Sat 08-Dec-12 18:46:29

Orange Kate Middleton is pregnant, she has no children yet.

LineysChristmasNamey Sat 08-Dec-12 19:38:17

Has Kate Middleton got a baby? That would be interesting.

DoingItOnTheRoofTopWithSanta Sun 09-Dec-12 14:28:59

I thought Orange's comments about Kate Middleton's baby were just a language thing. Orange, can you please link to the article you are talking about discussing Kate MIddletons babies? confused

kim147 Sun 09-Dec-12 14:36:25

Are you talking about a different Kate?

Pretty certain the press would have mentioned a baby?

kickassangel Sun 09-Dec-12 16:46:28

Some papers have decided we need to know what the baby could look like. So they've been highly scientific and done pictures of what their baby will look like. Basically, it will look like a baby.
