|Welly boots at the front door.|
I found out there are foreign banking tax forms that I am responsible for that I never knew about, so I am busy digging out years and years of bank statements. Of course I have foreign bank accounts! I live in the UK, I have to pay the household bills, etc. So, no sewing until I have sent all my forms to the US Treasury. Don't think I could enjoy sewing much with this hanging over my head anyway! When you see me post a new outfit on the blog, you'll know I got everything put in order and mailed off.
|Meet the Romans, BBC 2.|
Her name is Mary Beard, she is 58 years old, a mother and a Classics professor at Cambridge University. She is presenting a fun show on BBC2 about the day to day lives of the Romans. There has been lots of chat in the newspapers about how ugly she is!? Her supporters concede that even though she is unattractive, we should consider how worthy she is and not be superficial. Wow, with friends like that...
IMHO she looks great! She stayed trim through menopause, her hair is thick and her skin glows. She moves like a young person, and her eyes crinkle and dance when she smiles. What more do people want? What on Earth do they expect? What is wrong with people? Personally, if I look this good in 18 years time, I will be delighted. If the people writing snarky, condescending editorials in the broadsheets look this good at her age, they will be very lucky indeed!
