    and I'm exposing more skin than I have done in over 15 years!

    I love not being sweaty and sticky. I lve getting my legs out and wearing strappy tops. And most importantly, I love wearing a bikini in the garden and not worring about blocking the sunlight from the neighbours!

    Yes, I'm far from perfect but I can get away with it now. Thank you LL for giving me the confidence to enjoy the sunshine. I'd never have dreamt I could do this 12 months ago! ;):p:);):p:)

    I spent most of the weekend wearing full thermal underlayer, three fleeces, topped by a woolly bear (full thermal body suit)and then a drysuit for most of the weekend :D. The water was only 11 degrees so all layers were essential for enjoyment of the diving.

    However, topside I was ROASTING! OK when the boat was moving as we had a seabreeze, but waiting above the dive site was very warm. Now I know how a slow roast chicken might feel.

    I did, however, get my shorts on after the dives. My legs are so white they're blue. But it felt good. I must buy some new shorts though as the ones I wore are three sizes too big and flapped about and looked slightly ridiculous.

    Great isn't it! Thanks LL.

    Isn't it fab to wear lovely little tops and not feel hideous?! I went to the British SuperBike racing yesterday, wore a little strappy top and jeans and felt great - until I got too close to the emaciated brolly girls, of course :D

    Feels awesome doesn't it!! I personally don't have the confidence to wear anything past a t-shirt and long black jeans, but I do agree - it's so lovely not to be sweaty and sticky and feeling nasty for once!

    :D

    i'm wearing a dress today and wore shorts all weekend

    i can't really remember ever doing that before

    even last year on honeymoon when i did wear a dress my legs were always sweaty and i used to have to wear evans cycling short things under to be comfy...bleugh!

    i've been grinning ever since the sun came out.......

    - now if i could just find a way to sort out my bingo wings i would be completely happy!

    Funny you should ask...was talking at work yesterday and someone said if you lose any more you'll be coming to work in a Borat outfit.....

    Very nice!

    I don't have one - but my mate does.....
