Spoke to my granny who told me all about her trips to Carlisle, Penrith and Whitby (she and my grandad used their bus passes to get to Middlesbrough from Sunderland and then onto Whitby where they had fish and chip lunches and when she got home she was ‘jiggered’ she lives in an Enid Blyton book) and her upcoming annual trip to London in November and our potential trip to London to see les mis (!!) and she told me that if I needed any help moving to let her know and basically the point of this post is that my granny is adorable.

▪️I heard slow clubs new song while having tea and it was weird bc I didn’t recognise Rebecca’s voice (talking like we’re close friends you know) bc there’s an American twang to it now and it’s just weird bc I’ve not listened to slow club bc they make me sad.
▪️but then my dad told me that I look the spit of my grandma in my glasses which was nice. She died when I was 3 I don’t remember her. Wish I did.

▪️I am sad again. I want this to stop. I hate feeling inferior.

As a child I never heard one woman say to me, “I love my body.” Not my mother, my elder sister, my best friend. No one woman has ever said, “I am so proud of my body.” So I make sure to say it to Mia, because a positive physical outlook has to start at an early age.

I am a woman. I am a practicing attorney. I am the only woman in my office over the age of 35 who doesn’t color her hair. I have some gray, but not a lot yet, and I never seriously considered coloring my hair until this job. I don’t want to: it’s expensive and a pain in the ass to keep up. About a year ago, I was in court, and a female attorney walked in with curly, bobbed, naturally gray hair, and her mere act of publicly displaying her natural hair color seemed not just unusual but defiant. Meanwhile many men in my office and in the courts have gray hair, and I doubt anyone thinks twice about it.

What a beautiful photoset of women. Women we don’t often see portrayed in the media, but these are, indeed, women — just as grey-haired men are men.

I can’t wait for grey. I hope it’s more on the white side.

Who’s going white? 

Roo is going white! 

I’m going white very slowly, but my hair is fair enough that people seldom notice.  Stealth white!  I am never going to color it—why start now?
