Are you Mutton Dressed as Lamb?

                                             



                                        



  Do you feel old I don't I am a 45 going 16 in my head but  I often worry if I dress to young, I never have been a provocative dresser, even in my teenage years and twenty's,  I was always worried that my skirt's were to short or my top was to low, it is such a shame I was so self conscious because now I am older I do wish I let a little bit more hang out so to speak.  I used to look in the mirror and wonder do I look like a slag in this sorry to be so crude reader's but that's what I was saying in  my head, I hated my legs I thought they were chubby. pasty white and short, who would want to see them, I don't even want to see them, so I covered up my pasty pins up and put them away for a later date.  It took me till my mid twenty's  to get my legs out, when I dared to wear a short skirt on a night out and my Aunt said"you've got lovely legs why have you been hiding them all these years get them out Girl"
                                      I had a boyfriend when I was 16 nearly 17 who was far to old for me he was 21 I was a naive 16  year old and he was so much more clued up than I was about life, I knew nothing, for the short time I went out with him  he became controlling especially in who I spoke to and what I wore, there was certain red top he  hated, he said you could see right down it when I bent forward,  so I was banned from wearing it, the night I dumped him guess what I wore? yes his favorite red top. he he. That's another story for later ...... Clothes and what I wore already started to be first in my mind. 
                                          I go clothes shopping now and scurry around the shops picking things up and thinking I like that but am I to old to wear it? and put it back on the rack, aren't I silly, why can't I wear what the hell I want, why should I let age and society tell me what to wear and when, no I will not wear a skirt so short you can see my underwear or a top so low that my breasts have a mind of there own. But I may in the future take a few more risk's, I am not that old yet you know!

I am 50 and I have the same problem. I tend to be more conservative...

Depending on how you wear it then you have nothing to worry about. It's all in how you present yourself! Have fun!

My Summer Roller Coaster.

Hi to all my dear blog readers, sorry I have not been around for a few months, I had to take time off. I have had one of worst summers of my entire life, so as you can appreciate this post is the hardest I have ever had to write.
  In the Summer I lost my beloved Mother, she had been ill for a while but over the summer weeks she got worse and died at the end of the season, even though it was expected it was still a massive shock,  at times I cant believe it has happend and other times life is normal, and other times the sense of loss is unbearable. I lost my best friend the women who knew me  best of all didn't judge me and was the wisest person on the planet whose advice will never be forgotten and passed on, I was never going to write on the blog ever again, thinking I would have a blank head and never being able to get my  feelings out and turn them into words.  But my younger Brother said you need to go back on your blog it will do you good and distract you, you are creative …

My Obsession with Red Shoes.

I was clearing out some boxes that were secretly stashed at the bottom of my wardrobe,  actually  I forgot about them.  There were about six of them, I wondered what was in each one,  I took them out and placed them on my bed in great anticipation of what I might find, I opened the first one and there was a lovely pair of red stilettos  that were about 15 years old, and I hadn't worn in ages, the second one were some flats,  third some pumps, all the boxes contained shoes of some style that I hadn't seen for an eternity.                                         Why have I kept all theses old shoes, I thought, when I hadn't worn any of them for years, all lined up I looked at them. Yes  they are all Red,  and  that's why I couldn't bear to part with any of them.                                         I had discarded all different colours and style's  down the years,    couldn't spot any of them,  not even in a line up…

A TRUE STORY.

Last Summer 2018, the long hot Summer that we had here in the UK and all over the world, I had a blind in my Bathroom that was beautifully old and needed replacing desperately, but life gets in the way and I never kept getting around to do it, you know what I mean my lovely readers, you look at your old friend, and think yep you had it.  One day after one hot boiling day I went to close the window and my hand went right through it. and a big rip appeared,  I think the heat and time had made the blind fragile and vulnerable. It looked awful so I got a a big pair of scissors and cut across it embarrassed by the bathroom situation, lets say I can't cut very straight I scanned it from afar and thought, "No you have got to go".
    That's when I found a fantastic company that Makes made to measure blinds, they are called Make My Blinds.  They have a great and easy to navigate website, that make your blinds exactly to …

The Secret Blogger

Put your hands up who's a secret blogger,  me me me.  In a room full of people I would be the first to stand up, in a queue I would be well and truly at the front.  I am the Ultimate secret blogger I confess, anyone else come on own up.
    On a serious note when, I started my blogging journey I really wanted something to do on a creative level if  20 or so people read my posts I would have been really happy, I never realised  that I would get this far, I have learnt so much in such a short space of time. I started my blog on July 17th 2018, only one person knew about it, my Brother I needed him for the technical bit, I will give him a shout out because he does read the blog don't you know, it took me about three weeks to tell my Sister, and one of my Nieces and my older Brother but no one else knows,   I feel quite like it's some kind of big hush hush secret, don't get me wrong I am proud of my little corner of the internet, I am just not ready to share it with …
