The Duchess of Cambridge 三级成人视频has been talking about hypnobirthing, the ups and downs of giving birth and the fact that she “actually quite liked labour”. It’s inspiring stuff and Kate (who had some horrible pregnancies) should be applauded for sharing her experiences.
That said, even if you haven’t yourself given birth, the sentence “I actually quite liked labour” rings alarm bells. You instinctively know that this has to be not only on the list of Things Women Do Not Like Hearing From Other Women, but in the top 10.
三级成人视频Naturally this has got us thinking about what else is on that list and while it’s hard to narrow it down to just the 10, here’s what we’ve come up with. In no particular order:
The Birthday. “My girlfriends took me away for my birthday.” Really? We don’t want to go away on our birthday much, but Did They Really? Our girlfriends don’t know when our birthday is unless we send a sad “poor me” emoji on the day.
Major Weight loss.三级成人视频 “I lost a stone on the Yadda Yadda diet and now I’m the size I was when I was 28.” Fine! But it’s not just the Yadda Yadda is it? Or if it is, then they are literally never deviating from the rules for so much as a slice of birthday cake in the office.
Children moving on. “Our children are all buying their first flats.” Not that we are not happy for them, but it can be hard to hear that.
Domestic goddess. “This? I made it this morning, before work.” “This” is a lamb, leek and apricot pie embellished with a leafy pastry pattern, to serve 12.
Dedicated gardener. “I love gardening first thing. It’s so peaceful at six in the morning.”
Bargain hunter. “This? I got it in a junk shop三级成人视频 for £60.” “This” being a mirror that you might expect to find in the Elysée Palace. Or it’s a very special rug, because we do like a bargain rug.
Being left out by friends.三级成人视频 “The Whatsits are having us to stay in Greece.” That’s fine in itself. We would be delighted for them, but the Whatsits have never asked Us to Greece (still OK) and we were the ones who introduced them to the Whatsits (this is where the problem lies). We haven’t just been left out (we are not babies), we have been leapfrogged.
How to spot a good buy. “This? I got it in Zara at the weekend.” But how? We were in there and we never saw it! This is a double blow because we hate to miss out on an excellent jacket, but worse, we hate to be the dullard that can’t spot the wheat from the chaff, until someone else points it out. (Maybe we had seen the jacket, but we just didn’t know and She did.)
A healthier outlook on life. “I’ve given up drink.” Absolutely commendable. Only trouble is we hear “…so I will be even more productive, sparkly eyed, clear-skinned, lose that general puffiness, not to mention the irritability and occasional paranoia.” It feels a bit like getting ahead and leaving Us behind.
Impressive anniversary gifts. “These? Oh, something David gave me for our anniversary.” We don’t want tiny diamond earrings, BTW. But still… makes you think…
