    Yes I need to sort out getting my hair done. Didn’t have it done before the second lock down and it’s annoying me now.
    I tend to leave my brows to look after themselves. Not quite a monobrow, luckily, but there’s scars underneath both from childhood accidents which I don’t really want to expose.

    It's a fab colour, Melly.
    You look great.
    What make and colour is it please?
    My hair is very short - I have it cut every 6 weeks and feel it needs a colour to lift it. I'm a mousey brown.
    I usually do mine 'mango copper burst' from Superdrug but have been thinking about those pale pink/lilac shades for a change.

    Have a look at that it seems to be really good on virgin hair. 

    I feel fat not going to lie and have struggled a bit with the weight gain I know it's normal and I'm now a healthy weight but boobs and a belly are odd

    Never had boobs, but am definitely getting a belly which is new to me and which I am putting down to a) middle age and b) doing bog all since lockdown started. 
    Yours suits you melly.

    Hi Mel I've been having umpteen laptop issues so offline quite a lot.
    Good to see you looking well and happy. You do look great so believe us when we say you aren't overweight. I know the demons can return from time to time . It used to happen with my dd. Thankfully she's now free of those thoughts.
    Do you remember when you posted the before and after pics after leaving ? Look back to the hollow cheeks and dead eyes then look in the mirror and see the healthy , full of life woman you are now.
    I hope there wasn't a backlash over the repossession. Even with the weird times we are living in at the moment you can look forward to your first peaceful Christmas in far too many years. It's been a long time coming but finding the courage to leave has changed your life forever.
