Bunny, when you've been size 10 most of your life then size 14 feels fat, especially when you live in the slimmest country in Europe. I'm bigger boned than most French women too. Clothes shops here only go up to size 16 and that's often out of stock. They start at size 6.

Morning all.

I don't think the other thread is trying to make trouble at all. It's a bit of a misunderstanding as the person who started the thread was fairly new. I think he was just starting a thread to be friendly and a lot of people liked it. It has a different character to this one, it was just using the name "forkers" which is only used on this thread was an unfortunate choice.

Lovely sunny day here. 6° at 8.30. Has spring sprung?

Don't know how you all eat so much cake without getting fat, I can't even look at it  Was size 10, now 14.

I often cut my own hair. Have wardrobes with folding mirror doors so can see the back. Got fed up with French hairdressers doing what I didn't want. Cheaper. The only times I get compliments are when I cut it myself. Went to a hairdresser in England who said "who on earth did this to your hair, I can't wait to sort it out" - so I told her it was a French hairdresser. She did the best cut I'd had for ages.

Seeds are up

Potted up 10 dahlias today, sowed more French Marigolds (didn't germinate well last time, old seeds), Zinnias, asters (for cutting), and nasturtiums. All in GH and some in propogaters. Re-potted 3 echinaceas that I thought were dead but are now growing and 2 prunellas.

I imagine Bunny as small, a little plump (all those cakes!) and rather cute (she is a bunny after all).

Easier with Becks, pretty, considerably younger than me, with long dark hair (but I think it was cut recently?), petite figure.

I know what Pam looks like because I found an article on her greenhouse award.

Bunny, I haven't shed cals since the menopause. People used to say I was lucky as I didn't have a weight problem. Now they don't say anything!

I'm 5'3". Didn't we talk about this once before? Brown hair (helped by the odd bottle nowadays) hazel eyes, big feet, not flat chested.
