Earlier in the summer, CAD (i.e. the company I work for) decided to update our internal telephone directory, and to that end we were all sent off to the photographer's, to have our pictures taken in an artsy way. Here are two of them, the two I'm least embarrassed to show you (I thought Trinny and Susannah always maintained that stripes worn lengthwise had a slimming effect?)

(oh, and BTW, I'm at work, not in Oxon...wish I were though, and it's only my second day back on the job!)

Thank you - although I wish they'd let us know; I could have worn something more flattering, and got a hair cut ;-)

Lovely pictures - especially the second one!

Thank you, they're not bad.

Thanks, so do I.

You look great!

Why, thank you!
Oct. 13th, 2009 07:33 pm (UTC)
Those are lovely!

I agree they're not totally cringe-worthy...but you haven't see the rest of them!

Come off it, I've seen better days...about 30 years ago!

Seeing these for the first time came as a bit of a shock; I'd never really seen how far my youth had fled from me before. Though rationally I knew I'd entered middle age some time ago, until I saw these, I hadn't realised it showed. No wonder people address me as 'mevrouw' wherever I go these days.

But consider, I've only ever seen you look like this...I don't have in my mind that mirror image of 30 years ago. So I can honestly say, this is how you look, and it looks good to me....

Trust you to be the voice of reason and sanity...and you're absolutely right, of course!

You know the thing I'm most struck by? How much thinner my lips, and esp. the bottom one, has become as I've aged. Maybe it's time for some filler...

These are great pictures,you look wonderful.:)
Oct. 18th, 2009 09:59 am (UTC)
Thank you for saying that, you're very kind.
Oct. 13th, 2009 09:49 pm (UTC)
Very nice.
Oct. 18th, 2009 10:01 am (UTC)
Mwah...but then, no one ever likes their own pictures!
Oct. 14th, 2009 07:17 pm (UTC)
Wow, you get professional pictures! We're lucky to get the right phone numbers in our directory.
Oct. 18th, 2009 10:02 am (UTC)
Believe me, I'd rather just have the numbers!
