Keeping up Appearances
For Example; the instructor
1.'this piece of machinery is very good for the bum, it works larger muscles and burns more calories'
2.'women find this hard to do as they don't have great upper body strength'
3.'this is great for bingo wings'
1. I'm not prepared to run
2. really? *tries equipment*.........no, I think this is actually quite easy (I'm a contrary mare)
3. gives haughty/appalled look to instructor and watches while he uncomfortably looks for me to smile, I didn't
I couldn't help it, the poor man probably has a very successful banter with women of a certain age coming to the gym for the first time in a while (*cough* decades for me) and I just stood there stiffly, not amused, my bingo wings are not to be discussed in public! where is the decorum here? and where was my sense of humour? pah!
Nonetheless, I have been back and with a sense of humour, you need one, it's brutal!

In a charity shop, I spotted 2 actual vintage dresses
Mr F picked this up, how did I miss it?
Off I trotted expecting it to be too small
it's a vintage size 16
and how this fits I don't know!!
but it does
it was £5.50!
vintage does fit all sizes
it has 3 seam tears, which is so easily repaired
these cardi's were chazzed
the top one is M&S for £4.99
my dress was 51p more, crazy!
