Pretty as a picture

  1. It always makes me chortle when I see outdoorsy people layering on the makeup in the loos in the morning.

    As a windsurfer, rock climber, dog walker, horse rider, cyclist and skier they ain’t yet made the manicure and mascara that can cope with my lifestyle.

    But with rosy cheeks and that huge smile on my face, I look GORGEOUS!

    Signed – an Old Sheila!

  2. One of the many joys of being an old Sheila is that you realise nobody’s looking at you 100% of the time, and if they are looking at you they don’t really care whether or not you’ve got make-up on. make-ups a security blanket we don’t need any more.
