To all the beautiful mumsnetters I know - grab that purple hat and forget the housework - life's too short for dusting!!!

Beautiful Women's Month

Age 3: She looks at herself and sees a Queen.

Age 8: She looks at herself and sees Cinderella.

Age 15: She looks at herself and sees an Ugly Sister Mum I can't go
to school looking like this!)

Age 20: She looks at herself and sees "too fat/too thin, too short/too tall, too straight/too curly"- but decides she's going out anyway.

Age 30: She looks at herself and sees "too fat/too thin, too short/too tall, too straight/too curly" - but decides she doesn't have time to fix it, so she's going out anyway.

Age 40: She looks at herself and sees "clean" and goes out anyway.

Age 50: She looks at herself and sees "I am" and goes wherever she wants to go.

Age 60: She looks at herself and reminds herself of all the people who can't even see themselves in the mirror anymore. Goes out and conquers the world.

Age 70: She looks at herself &sees wisdom, laughter and ability, goes out and enjoys life.

Age 80: Doesn't bother to look Just puts on a purple hat and goes out to have fun with the world.

In my 40's but try and fix it does that make me deeply shallow.........

So true! I'm at the "clean" stage. And I fancy fast-forwarding to the purple hat!

WigWamBam Tue 07-Jun-05 19:28:16

I think I'll just skip to the purple hat and have done with it

I love that story! Another one is "I don't want to grow old gracefully. I want to come skidding in at the end, glass of wine in one hand, chocolate in the other, and yell 'what a life'!"

I am 26 but at the 30's stage.

Supposedly at the "clean" stage although I do try a bit harder than that most days. At least clean and tidy.

gossifer Tue 07-Jun-05 22:10:18

thanks, put a big smile on my face, but made me think i'd maybe like a purple hat sooner!!

I like that. Needs another line though: Age 35, feels 95.
