I consider part of being healthy to be *not* feeling stressed out about how I put on a bunch of weight, so going back to normal would definitely count as healthy!
Yes, yes, yes. £250,000 seems the same as a million to me, really, because I can't imagine having either. BUT my full-time-job + three-freelance-businesses income I have now would've seemed equally unimaginable to myself at 17, when I got my first job making £6 an hour or something. Read more
Yes, exactly. I didn't want to say "for people who are posh" because I know people who are definitely not at all posh but are massively rich – but actually it's interesting to me that in the first case I'm think of, that money came through football, which is a well-worn path in its own right. (Some people grow up… Read more
It cracks me up how many people I knew growing up *wanted* so desperately to be middle class – I'd like to have the money we associated with that, of course, and I was thrilled that we weren't living on a council estate, but I definitely didn't want to be something I wasn't. I just wanted more money!
I don't know the programme or what the character does, but I agree it doesn't sound like a lot of money… for people in the "making a lot of money" realm (ie, I know there are people who make a million a year, so someone making a quarter of that doesn't seem in any way unrealistic). Read more
I liked the dark Batiste one… but then I tried the volumising Batiste one and it's AMAZING.
I love a weeknight activity because I've already made the effort to get dressed and possibly even brush my hair, so why waste it? (And at weekends I avoid doing any of that, obviously.)
I know someone who CONSTANTLY complains about how busy she is, at length, to the point where other people overhearing her start muttering about how if she didn't spend so much time complaining about how long her to-do list is then perhaps her to-do list wouldn't be so long. She also insists that no one else can be as… Read more
I've given myself the running-my-own-business-and-studying schedule, too. I'm happiest with it that way, but it does make me laugh when people sometimes talk about how much free time I must have. Bizarre!
I have to actively decide to not be busy sometimes, because I think my personality just makes me take a lot on. I work full time, do freelance writing and three different types of freelance photography (and handle all the marketing, accounting, etc, for that) and am studying for a second degree. And then there's… Read more
So envious! A friend is in Jordan RIGHT NOW, Instagramming me into a jealous hole.
I remember when that came out and almost everyone I knew was cracking up over how much posher she sounds than the actual royal person!
It sounds quite put on to me – none of the posh people I know sound like they make that much of an effort to sound posh, you know? (But I can't really think of any other way to say "support," unless it's the American/West Country/pirate way with tons of R in the "porrrrrrrrt" bit.)
I agree; it sounds so unnatural.
Sadly, many aren't that bright. I once saw a three-woman pile-up at the bottom of a flight of stairs. I try to stay out of Essex.
I've done this before with Americans. I couldn't believe it the first time I heard it.
