Joining in with this one as I'm always being told how great Mumsnet is!

Yesterday I was stopped by so many people who wanted to pay me compliments, mostly on my coat, which was nice but they didn't offer me any food!

Can you guess how old I am? I had a big birthday not so long ago!

You look very regal.
May I humbly suggest 10, your majesty?

The people on the train were right. Though they could perhaps have been a bit more generous.

Love this grin
No idea about your age.

I passed two red setters in the street a few years back. I was with my young son at the time so I said to him aww look how gorgeous. As soon as I said that they both perked up and started wagging their tails. I wasn't even that close to them but they were clearly so used to compliments that they immediately responded grin

Gosh they were right, you are beautiful 😍

I guess 8.

7 physically. About 5 months mentally going by the setters I know.

Thank you for the lovely comments everyone - a couple of facts about me that may or may not indicate my age!

- my hobbies include shredding boxes, visiting castles and stately homes, I love staring at squirrels and cats, my favourite food is fish and chips (I once stole some), my favourite place to go on holiday is the Alps and I know when people say the letters "f o o d" they mean exactly the same thing as "food"

Are you a girl?

Have you thought about investing in a lumea?

bestofme21 Sun 19-Jan-20 14:22:16

Smart, cultured and beautiful 😍

I think 10 ..... chasing squirrels isn't an option so you just stare now

I am female, but I'm often mistaken for male because I'm quite large!

I get told this all the time. I respond that I bathe in the blood of virgin mice every morning.

BillyTheKnid Sun 19-Jan-20 14:27:03

Well in that case - yeah you’re gorgeous. I would. Fancy meeting up for some no strings fun? Thus is me. I may be small but I’m sure we could work something out. Don’t tell my mum though.

BillyTheKnid Sun 19-Jan-20 14:28:07

This. Not thus. Soz. Getting excited. Stupid paws.

poppsypie Sun 19-Jan-20 14:29:32

@BillyTheKnid - you look gorgeous and I love your eyebrows!

ioioitsoff Sun 19-Jan-20 14:30:33

6. Never mind that though, do you need a house sitter for when your humans are away ?

BillyTheKnid Sun 19-Jan-20 14:32:56

Cheers babe. Likewise and all that. You’re a stunna! Maybe if we found a slope or I stood on a box?

EnidBlyton Sun 19-Jan-20 14:33:34

I love red setters, so gorgeous

Beauty like yours is timeless.

Couldn't even guess.

Billy -- you're a fox!
