Being a woman

I'm sitting here with bleach on my top lip.

When it's worked its magic I'll be epilating, showering, washing hair, conditioning hair, shaving legs, moisturising, tanning.

And, like painting the Forth bridge, by the time I've finished it'll all need doing again.

Husband showers. Full stop. And he didn't have to live through periods. His own that is; he suffered with mine.

Mutter, mutter.

A girl came to slimming class this morning recruiting for carers. She works for an organisation that offers one-to-one care and prides itself on matching client and carer. For example, a man in his forties, severely disabled with MS, used to be a biker and has loads of tattoos. They found him a carer equally tattooed and with pink hair. they go to the pub together.

But my favourite was the 82-year-old lady who specifically asked for a good-looking young man to play on the playstation with her.

Everyone knows that good-looking young men know far more about playstations .

I loved your bilingual joke (English/German) : Mutter, mutter ;-)

Surely though, it should now read : Großmutter, Großmutter ;-)
