What Was Your Best Age?


    Here is a topic to think about when was your best age?   Have you ever thought about at what age  you where you your happiest, looking back at my entire life all 45 years and a few weeks of it I would say that it was when I was 28, I looked good,  I was slimmer, my hair was darker and shinny, I had a good job and a man that adored me, I socialized more, meals out and drinks, I loved shopping for outfits that I could wear at the weekends and I was generally much happier.
         I remember a little scene I was out for dinner with some friends and we were going on to a party afterwards, while I was there I hadn't noticed that my ex boyfriend was sitting three tables down from me with the girl he went out with three weeks after he dumped me by screaming in my face. I saw the light drain from his face, when he realized I was sitting at that dark wooden table,  I swear the girlfriend had the same outfit and hairstyle from ten years before and I was shocked he was still with her, I remember at the time my eighteen year old heart was broken, and when he met her my friends couldn't wait to point out the resemblance between me and her, ten years on I had blossomed into an attractive young lady and she looked about 50 with her old  fashioned hairstyle and Grandmother clothes, Ohhh Bitchy I hear you say, well that's how I felt at the time dear readers it  felt so good and I wanted that pig to know it, my life had moved on I wanted to stick two fingers up as if to say see I cried my self to sleep for weeks over you, and look at me know I'm  GORGEOUS, but alas I didn't,  all I did was look at him and give this little smile, and he gave the same slight smile back  but I saw him starring at me from the corner of my eye, you know the look girls, you pretend your  not looking but we are, and we have clocked you, If your a man reading this then I don't want to give away all us lady's secrets shhhhhhhh.
                      Years later life has changed to much, I still have fun but not like I used to,  life becomes more serious as you get older, because of the responsibilities we have impaled on us. But life has also taught me so much good and bad I am not the same person as I was back then I am more confident and not afraid of much anymore, I don't let people get to me the way I did then, and I am a more mellow and excepting person who can see through people very easily.  Why couldn't I have that head on my shoulders at twenty eight but the looks now at forty five life is not fair but I am human being I suppose and we can't have it all.

Youtube's Lucy Wyndham-Read, My New Online Personal Trainer.

I have started a new fitness routine, I have always loved keeping fit since my late twenty's till today, it's funny that when I was at school I hated sports or games as we call it here in the UK, I was always the last or second to last in a race and was never picked for any team I did however excel at Volley Ball (no idea why) and I was good at dance, but of course my school abandoned the volley ball team. at age thirteen, but I did do dance lessons from the age of seven till sixteen, I had  dreams of being a dancer on Top of the Pops, (yeah right).
 From about the age of 27 I started to workout to keep fit DVD's and they worked they really did, and I actually enjoyed it, I became pretty fit and had a nice little figure too,  but alas time has gone on and the years have gone by and by the time I was 35 I started to realize I couldn't do the DVD's that I was doing a few years back and was struggling to do any more that 20 mins each time, and eventually  I started …

Why I Hate Love Island.

I know this will not be  popular  with a lot of the  British public, but I hate ITV1's  Love Island, there I have said it. Am I the only one?  I feel on a daily basis the only one.   Last Summer this show, about lovely young men and women on an holiday island  was on and all my  female friends and some of my  family were watching it, they were fascinated, next to the photocopier they were fascinated, going out for drinks with my girlfriends all I could hear was he fancies her she snogged him, so I felt like an absolute freak when I suddenly shouted to out "I have never seen it", all heads turned and looked at me in amazement, eyes wide and mouths open, one or two heads shaking in amazement, "what" one particular friend   cried out "never?".  They were horrified I felt like I wanted the ground to swallow me up whole.
   So I must confess that night I went home put on Youtube typed in Love Island and there were lots of lots of older clips I saw one tha…
