    At the moment I have a window between when I get up and the baby wakes up. I get up at 6am to have breakfast with DH and the baby wakes at 8am, so as soon as DH leaves I run to the shower and do my hair and makeup!

    I try to get up half an hour earlier than DD on school days so that I'm ready before she gets up. Weekends we wait until the kids wake up and usually I shower after breakfast. The kids are well and truly old enough to entertain themselves while I get ready.

    yes i'm fine thanks. thanks for the concern though.

    maybe you missed the original post where i said this thread was partly tongue in cheek?

    @turquoisecoast doesn't and didn't faze me in the slightest with how you have phrased the thread.

    Currently I feel like a bloated beached whale with a wobbly gut.

    I'm not sure how my post got you so offside - as far as I can see you may have seen it as assessing the thread/comments/posters as being too focused on looks? Genuinely trying to understand here.

    The background to my post was having spent the previous half hour reading a book by a UK politician, talking about a lot of her experiences with regard to how hard it is to be taken seriously as a woman in public office, and the extent to which the world at large judges you on appearance/appearing feminine and ladylike. Reading through these responses was in that context, and not in the context of having started a thread tongue-in-cheek because, not being you and not having been up-to-date on the other thread, I had no idea that was where it had come from.

    You know what's a friendlier way to get your point across? "Hey, I think you're taking this a bit seriously" or 1 of a hundred different possible responses. Seriously no need to be rude.

    No it doesn't but respect and kindness goes a long way.

    yes but sometimes it's more satisfying to take the short and sharp route. childish as it is.

    it's like someone telling you to say blast instead of f.ck. doesn't have the same punch.

    thanks for explaining your context. makes perfect sense and i totally get how this thread could be interpreted that way in that context.

    totally agree with the material you're reading by the way, what's the book? sounds interesting.
