Arggghhhhhh!! Its me.

As I sit here in the hairdressers I am struck by 2 things........Number 1, I am 43 on Sunday and number 2, I am looking old....................................................Small lines have invaded my once smooth young looking face, my eyebrows look thinner and I'm sure I can see a white one........................Maybe its the lighting in here............................Nope...............................On further inspection it is....................................OUCH!............................I've plucked it out. The woman next to me is laughing as I examine the wiry Father Christmas type lone hair.

What the hell is happening to me............................I've looked after myself, I use very expensive face cream which claims to keep you looking younger....................I should look about 10 by now not 75.

Oh God...........................................What is that on my chin.....................................Its another one................Marvellous, I have 2 chins. Would someone please take this mirror away from me..................................That's it.......................I'm turning round to face the other way.............................................ARGHHHHHHHH!..............................There are mirrors everywhere and now I can see a full 360 degree reflected image of myself.

Its no use, I am going to have to except it.........................I turn back to face the front.................There I am.....................................Its not that bad..............................Its me, good old reliable me. Its a face I know and trust and.

I need to get a grip......................All is not lost....................My nails.......................My nails look nice, I will focus on them.................Oh Crap.........................There's a chipped one..................That's definitely it, I am closing my eyes and not opening them until she has finished my hair..................Then I am going to ask for my money back from the nice face cream people.

  1. Totally feeling your pain! I have a white eyebrow hair and all sorts of 'fine lines' have appeared near to my mouth since turning 40. Very best of luck with the BiBs. Really hope you make it to the finals. X

  8. I'm the same age as you and suddenly lines and wrinkles appeared overnight. Unfortunately part of the secret to lovely wrinkle free skin is in your genes, although money can help to get plastic surgery ;)

    I am sure you are beautiful. Have a great birthday!

  15. Haha - yes I totally get this! It is the one thing I miss about wearing glasses - having a clear image of myself and my grey roots and dark undereyes and crows feet in the mirror. Much better to read Grazia and ignore the mirror - trust me ;-)

  25. I always have a slight freak out at the hairdressers, I swear the lighting in there is designed to highlight ever line and wrinkle. X
