I've had a bit of a mahoosive break. I spent time with my brain and indulged in an awful lot of contemplation *groan* I pondered the Maiden/Mother/Crone philosophy (the stages of a woman's life) I had a go at being sexy, apparently throwing my leg around a door and slapping my bum isn't remotely hot. Nope, it's all about being confident in yourself. And if that requires a shit load of make-up, big hair, some fancy clothes and a bucket load of coconut body butter to hydrate my leathery skin, so be it! I'm feeling sassy, and I like it!
Now, I should give you a strong warning.
