I know you don't, but I've just had my hip young neice to visit and God I feel old

Should I give up now?

Just think of all the horrors of life she still has to endure. That should cheer you up a bit, lol.

Actually, my arse is probably the only part of me that has survived after pregnancy. I would go for a fat everything else frump instead. I am too tired to care...grin

Sobernow I was just like you now have men a lot older eyeing me up i feel like saying i am out of your league then realise am now not fat but a frump.

I know its in my hands but I'm too knackered to do much about it

I have worn lipstick every day since ds was born and straightened my hair

There is no excuse - it's all about priorities grin

yes, it's mandatory. don't care. I'm making the most of my frump status and using it as an excuse to eat more chocolate.

I'm not fat or much of a frump

But when our tall, glamorous 17yo babysitter arrives, I feel like both, with an extra dollop of ancient.

no you do not

I look better now than I did in the 1980's ( kid you not !)

Gobbledigook Mon 15-Sep-08 22:09:46

I'm neither fat nor frumpy. Don't intend to get that way either!

hellymelly Mon 15-Sep-08 22:09:46

ha ha sobernow.It was my wedding anniversary recently and i look at the pics with amazement-five years later I have two children but although slim again I am doughy and my legs are like a road map.Breasts are bouyed up by milk at the mo but will be like two pittas on a plate when I stop.Tummy has freakish jutting roll of podge above section scar.I have red lipstick on,but most days I look like vera drake.

lilolilmanchester Mon 15-Sep-08 22:34:06

I never used to be and never intended to be but somehow it just happened sad

Gobbledigook Tue 16-Sep-08 08:10:21

lilo!! YOu are neither!

Gobbledigook Tue 16-Sep-08 08:10:52

But I heard you got 'hop-a-long' drunk at the weekend!

theressomethingaboutmarie Tue 16-Sep-08 08:13:36

I actually put make up on after I had had DD and both mornings that I stayed in the hospital. I had requested not to have visitors so early on so didn't do it for them - I did it for me.

I do my hair and wear make up every day (not lots, I'm very fair so I need to wear mascara and eye brow pencil so as not to look odd!) and try to look half decent.

chelsygirl Tue 16-Sep-08 08:23:35

I know I should make more of an effort, God knows I need it!

I used to wear make up for "others", now I need to wear it for me

[dunks 3rd chocolate biscuit in tea and glances down at fat thighs clad in jogging bottoms].

Yep!

lilolilmanchester Tue 16-Sep-08 17:34:33
