    Ahhhhh and that's where we differ! I'm painfully conscious of what people think of me. Thought I'd be over it by now.....but nope.

    Then again I usually have 13 month DD in the Ergo, rarely straighten my hair and often favour handmade goods, so I must be a crunchy mummy.

    Oh I give up.
    Lol.

    I also own a pandora bracelet, coffee table but my kids are rarely in pumpkin patch. No Strider either.

    I'm not sure how I come across. I'm always dressed neatly and conservatively with make up on. I never swear, mind my p&qs and my kids are always neat (as possible).

    Wallpaper I guess. I used to be so different.

    I'm always looking to meet new people but I find so many other mums very unfriendly. No one says hi or smiles when eye contact is made. I have more luck with childless people.

    I don't really know, but probably as though I don't care (which I don't!) as I always go straight from the gym in my sweaty clothes to the park or shops! Apparently that is not acceptable to some people I also am hopeless at fashion. I have no interest in clothes. I live in jeans and jumpers in winter, and shorts and shirts and thongs in summer.

    It's hard to gauge after weight loss, because once you've always been "the fat girl," that kind of emcompasses every part of who you are. Now I don't think "fat" would be hte first word people would use to describe me, I'm really not sure what they'd think.

    A lot of people comment on my dresses randomly to me (not exclusively rockabilly/pinup anymore cos I don't think it matches my short hair... lol), so I assume people think I dress nicely most of the time.

    I think I come across as younger than I am too... except perhaps if I'm wearing my glasses. I think I come across as older with them on.

    A school friend said to me yesterday, "You're so caring Stace... you're such a kind friend." I was quite confused because if anything, I thought I'd come across as a bit of a b*tch (I swear and like to talk about stabbing things/people who annoy me... lol. Just my way of saying, "I hate that," I suppose, and of course it's a joke, but still thought it'd come across as a bit crazy and unnecessarily mean).

    I think "strange," is another one people would use.

    I don't think I've ever been really treated like a scummy younger mother. I've always made sure that Chanel and I have been relatively well-dressed so we don't get that negative stigma attached.

    Wow I really have no idea. I THINK most people I'm my circles like me but maybe they don't.I have been told I'm quite blunt, friendly, easy going etc.

    I have friends and people seem to respond well to me at work, mums at school etc.

    To be honest I don't know anymore nor do I care.
    I've been judged for putting my family before my friends and made out to be a b!tch for it.

    So I stopped socializing with those friends. I probably come across as an unfriendly recluse these days.

    Haha.. this is actually similar to me. Me saying i want to stab some one or set them on fire is just my way of saying i don't like them.

    People that know me somewhat label me 'weird'.
