The comments on here have made me grin ( in a good way)

Yep I'll agree about the nails -red? At a wedding? She's wearing pink.
And the neck, just like mine. Lovely

GNHQ have listened to our concerns. This photo's on the Facebook page now. The caption is "I will probably be working till I drop dead", so she must be under pension age. Perhaps she's had a hard life. grin

Looks like me when I drag myself in from work at the end of a long week. only another 2 years to go. Providing they don't move the goal posts again

Perhaps I should recommend Clarins moisturiser to her. Other makes are available and probably just as good.

Ah, Chewbacca, and do you gaze wistfully out of the window like that, imagining what life will be like when you finally get your pension (I know I do!)? 3 years for me. [big sigh emoticon]

Actually Maggie, no I dont! I usually stagger in and slump in a chair, still with my coat on, and don't speak to anyone for at least half an hour. And I've given up wondering what life will be life when I finally reach retirement age because it's been moved back, in 18 month increments, 3 times now and I'm not optimistic that it won't be moved back again. Do you still have any optimism that you'll ever get to state retirement age?

I’ve got to have, Chewbacca, or I think I’d go mad! 6 years is more than enough to miss out on. angry

Rotten cactus on the shelf, could have had a pretty plant

I wonder if she looks that miserable because she hasn't discovered GN or whether she is a (very old and depressed) GNetter who keeps getting attacked on the politics forum.

She's just bought that dress at M and S and is regretting it and now she's thinking 'What a pain, I'll have to take it back.'

Catlady47 Thu 15-Feb-18 21:22:37
