This week’s theme for Tara’s The Gallery is self portrait.


I’ve never been shy about posting photos (no, not ‘those’ photos,) but that doesn’t mean I don’t have insecurities like everyone else … I just manage them well.  I’m 42 … it is what it is.  No point pretending I’m younger and actually, I quite like where I am in my life right now.


OK, I’m single, but I don’t see that as a negative thing.  I have a great job, lovely family, and my boys are doing really well.  Yeah, I have a few wrinkles and my left eye is weirdly a little droopy, but it’s character building!


I love my hair.  I love that I don’t know anyone else with the same hair colour and I will also think that redheads rock.  (Because they do.)  I like wearing bright lipstick, I smile (a lot) and I like to think I still have a naughty twinkle in my eye – even at the ripe old age of 42.


So there you have it.  That’s me.  Cracking on a bit, but still a big lover of life.

  1. Red heads do rock of course!!! You look fab and not 42 at all, I am fast running behind you and will be matching your age in July *groan*!

    I hate totally having my photo taken, I am happy generally what I see in the mirror but photo’s I hate. My camera obviously lies or I have a very kind mirror!!!

  2. Hello fellow redhead (although mine’s Henna not natural either)! You’re looking good for 42 and life’s definitely not over.
