Is this the most exotic blw meetup ever???

Some of us get together from time to time in order to talk about the latest issue of Heat magazine, global politics, important developments in lipstick manufacture and, er, Baby-Led Weaning.

A friend of mine got in a cab and the driver said she looked "just like father Christmas".

Need rock solid self esteem to hang out 'round here!

Yup. I visited a kindergarten I used to teach in when Aisha was about 4 months old, and a lot of the kids were like "so how come your tummy is still huge? you got another one in there sensei?"

Bloody Japanese women returning to prebaby flatness in a few days..... (not that I was flat pre-baby either)

Yes, the joys of living in Asia...'you fat...' lovely!
I felt better when I went shopping with a friend who is definitely thin. She must be - at biggest - a size 10 UK size ...One of the shop keepers wouldn't let her try on a top because she was too fat for it... Nice eh?! Made my friend determined and she did fit in to it...

Oh fun fun fun...but absolute heaven when you march in to M and S (as JVNT and myself did at our meet!) and hold up a pair of jeans and think 'hey they will fit me' YAY !

You see...the things you miss when you live in UK... :)
So who's coming for our next meet in Asia eh? :)

That sounds like fun! I wonder if it is a shorter distance for you to fly than for me? Although I imagine right now you won't be going anywhere - especially with the costs of flights going up...

If we actually managed to orchestrate you, JVNT and I meeting up - that would be amazing....worth an award surely??? ;)

I do think people see white and say fat without it having any actual relationship to your size. Same thing with The Boy - everyone says how big he is but he's pretty average really, even compared to local children.
