Artist's Description

Okay my 50th birthday has arrived at my door so thought I had better instead of worrying about it (some of you will know my struggles I have been having with it) I decided to try and find the postives.

  • If you have the time and want to read 50 things about me look Here

1. Had my hair cut short it was used as a sheild.

2. Had it coloured as always loved reds and hennas in my hair. Had lots of white hairs coming through.

3. You can now see my face :)

4. Went and got myself a new eye shadow and lip gloss

5. I had stopped bothering with such things.

6.Used to always have mascara on and make a effort when I first met Simon 5 years ago

7. Need to re look at my wardrobe and what I wear

8. Bridget jones knickers can stay I’m way past thongs.

9. Make time for me to have a facial or manicure

10. Look at it as a new chapter not an end of the 50 years I have had.

11. Continue to learn new things. I will finish a easy Sudukoi soon

12. Widen my horizons and try new things and challenge myself.
