"Focus on the journey, not the destination. Joy is found not in finishing an activity but in doing it." Greg Anderson
Easy for him to say! All he ever has to do is wash and shave. That's because he's a man.

My journey starts with the FIRST BLOG; you'll need coffee/tea and probably some chocolate digestives, or maybe some Cadbury's Fruit and Nut, or Green and Black's Organic if you've got more money than sense.

Oh the ignominy and shame!

Youngest son and I went to the mall - him to meet a mate and buy some new clobber, me to get my eyebrows threaded as basheeran suggested; I even passed on the helpful money spinner - Nasal Trimming 4U. It was a little painful, though happily nothing like childbirth or a tooth abcess. This pre-date/snog/shag beautification business is doing my head and bank balance in. 

When the lady had finished my eyebrows, she said 'Would you like to me do your upper lip now?'

Er? My upper lip? Really? 'Why?' I said. 'Do you honestly think I need it?'

'Hmm. It's fair hair, of course, but there is quite a lot of it, Madam.' Bitch. She and Stella could form a double act.

So I felt compelled to say yes. As I tilted my head backwards to allow her to remove the moustache in full view of the perambulating throng, I saw the reflection of my son's horrified face in the mirror in front of me as he and his friend walked past, son pretending this nightmarish vision was not his mother. I then got a text saying, 'In Burgerking. Don't come 2 find me. CU in car park 4.30'. Kids, eh? No empathy.  

But look a me, folks! Sharon Stone has competition!

Almost nothing in it now... So! Time to get back to the emailing because - as you all know - per ardua ad astra! Smiley face, kiss, lol, lmao and all that other merde.

You know, you're not wrong! The similarity is scary - clone or wot.
