Totally outing myself...

we are page 88 of January Psychologies magazine. My hair looks terrible, DS looks divine. So all normal then!

Kew.... Loved your recycled child comment. Hilarious.
I told a friend the other day, who was trying to persuade me to get e rescue dog rather than a puppy, "I've already rescued one dog and three children!!" Fortunately she saw the funny side.

Yes Devora, you are totally normal now fhmm

Devora Thu 12-Dec-13 23:08:39

What we're doing for those poor little children is just wonderful, you know. We are Very Special People.

But btw, it is a long long time since I read an article on 'the new family' and it DIDN'T feature lesbian/gay parents. Have we become the new normal?! About ten years ago they dropped featuring interracial couples in the same features. Aren't I exotic and interesting anymore? Do I have to go all the way to Kyrgyzstan to qualify?! [huffs off stage left]

Of course it is dontcha know. We are all saints , you cannot mock us

Not only is my hair scruffy but my recycled child one-upmanship on the eco nappy thread was soundly ignored by everyone except MrSDV.

I htink people are scared to comment on it - is adoption humour the equivalent of morgue humour for doctors?

Disclaimer - have not been to the newsagent to check this out yet. BUT am fairly sure they don't let you be in Psychologies magazine as the poster people for adoption unless everyone scrubs up well...

Lilka Thu 12-Dec-13 21:43:31

If THAT'S scruffy, what the fuck is my hair???

Kewcumber Thu 12-Dec-13 21:20:27

it is scruffy (humph) When it is perfect, it does a gentle little flicky out thing at the bottom not a scramble. And at the beginning of the shoot it was perfect (humph)

DS would say very crossly "I'm EIGHT"

But he is cute handsome isn't he.

Thats exactly the look it was by then Devora

Devora Thu 12-Dec-13 21:15:12

Yeah, was that look really a smiley-mouth-glaring-eyes-don't-you-dare-mess-about-I-just-want-to-get-this-photo-over-and-we-can-all-go-home kind of of thing?

Lilka Thu 12-Dec-13 21:13:17


After ALL this hair build up, and all this anticipation, I was expecting something like this

But what did I get when I looked at it in Smiths today? Normal hair. Normal hair


Your DS is absolutely one of the most handsome little 7 year old boys there is smile

You got the 'I can't take my eyes off my beloved boy' pose off to a tee Kew

Lizzylou Thu 12-Dec-13 17:54:05

I saw that article and obviously guessed it was you grin
You both look extremely happy, great article.

Moomoomie Thu 12-Dec-13 17:47:34

fgrin fgrin
I love Sir Bob. I reckon he pays a fortune to have his hair like that, and yours comes naturally. How lucky are you?

Kewcumber Wed 11-Dec-13 13:50:35


You think comparing me to Sir Bob is going to help? hmm hmm

Moomoomie Wed 11-Dec-13 13:47:47

Who cares if your hair is scruffy so is Bob Geldof's and we still love him. grin

Kewcumber Wed 11-Dec-13 12:39:40

MY HAIR IS SCRUFFY - whats wring with you lot - are you follically challenged. But yes DS is gorgeous isn't he - it's a nice pic of him.

Moomoomie Wed 11-Dec-13 09:51:11

Guess what I've just read in Sainsburys ? To tight to buy it I'm afraid, Kew, your son is gorgeous. And there is nothing wrong with your hair.

AnAdventureInCakeAndWine Wed 11-Dec-13 00:11:35

I'll read it in the supermarket. If your hair has good long-term amusement potential I may even buy a copy... grin

Devora Tue 10-Dec-13 23:56:09

I've got it! Your hair looks fiiiiine, laydee.

Kewcumber Tue 10-Dec-13 21:11:02

It is a particularly discerning magazine - they only invite the best people (with the scruffiest hair) to participate

DrHolmes Tue 10-Dec-13 21:03:08

I buy this mag every month. Love it!

Lilka Tue 10-Dec-13 20:56:39

<runs away>

In my defence - It wasn't in the little supermarket nearest my house. Swear on me life guv'nor, it weren't there! I'll find it when I next go into town. I'll make a special detour to WHSmiths, they'll definitely have it. Good enough?

Kewcumber Tue 10-Dec-13 19:42:40

So, so, so... Have you looked yet Lilka? <<ignores insults>>

Lilka Tue 10-Dec-13 19:07:33

I didn't really detect any difference between the 'deranged' and 'normal' you there Kew wink

Kewcumber Tue 10-Dec-13 10:29:52

Actually that post makes me sound really quite deranged. <<twitch>>

Kewcumber Tue 10-Dec-13 10:29:28

I am sulking. It's not working. I am quite psychological in it - listen to me.
