I am sensing a slight depression, Tesco delivery men don’t seem their usual selves. I study Tesco prices with interest, most of the basic items I regularly buy have in the last few weeks risen as high as sometimes 10%. Civil unrest is not far away.
I am going far away to Banbury Therapy Centre next Saturday to perform my new show “Sex, Politics and Men with grey/white beards”. I was there last in December 2012, performing with Ruby Wax who has done extremely well in promoting mental health. In the green room under the make up lights, I couldn’t take my eyes off her amazing smooth skin for a woman similar to my age. Face lifts/Botox etc are extraordinary. I met with another woman recently who said that HRT keeps her skin looking so young. I do think about it but am grateful to have my husband who finds me attractive and I favour to look after myself from the inside out, keeping the internal organs working whilst keeping MS at bay. Medication and surgery can come at a different price.
If you are ever unhappy about how you look, check out this amazing Canadian man who I am proud to know and have worked with:

Without taking care of my face with surgery it would be way too late to get on TV, but I don’t mind, because I have been on TV. When the BBC news came to Peckham Library mother and baby group in 2000, talking about the compensation that had been offered to Damilola’s parents, I was interviewed and got on the news with the soundbite. While breastfeeding I said “It’s not just about money, it’s about life”. I am content with my historical TV presence, it is an important message.
(There is also the subliminal with film and TV e.g. when the film “Let him have it” came out about Derek Bentley there were posters all over the underground. Lots of my ex boyfriends got back in contact with me around this time. It’s nice to be remembered. Oops, this reminds me, I should be using my time editing my book ..)
