Busy day at work.
Grey cold wet weather.
Back home to an empty house.
What will make me feel better?
Decide to put the lamps on, close the curtains, make the house feel lived in and then have dinner.
A big, and yes it was quite big.....a very generous portion, of roasted vegetables and vegetarian sausage.
Followed by 2.........ok 3..... slices of very tasty home made pecan syrup cake, made and gifted to me by a friend.....who knows how much I love cake.
One pot of tea later and I feel like I'm welded to the couch by my huge arse, with a sort of 'I think I've eaten a house brick' in the belly feeling.
On the TV is Tyra Banks and ANTM...if you have a teenage daughter you may be familiar with this televisual fluff.
I cannot stop watching.......thin young girls with cheekbones and energy posing away.........all being photographed by a GORGEOUS Italian photographer (Francesco Carozzini.....no I'd never heard of him before either) and it made me think how very true it is that most young women have terrible doubts and anxieties about their bodies and their appearance, and it matters not a jot if your mother tells you how beautiful you are, you just grr and growl and don't hold your shoulders back and wear baggy clothes and always feel ugly.........then, when you are a lardy old lady like me you look at pictures of yourself from your teenage years and think 'woah...I wasn't so bad back then!'..........wish I'd listened to my mum........
