Just say it like it is .....

Just a quick note this morning as I have a bit of a hangover headache....  (honestly, 3 glasses of wine - I am such a lightweight these days....)

One of our male friends, who shall remain nameless but you know who you are, came over yesterday evening "for a quick pint" with Ian.  Whatever, they came home at midnight ringing the doorbell because there was something wrong with the lock, yeah, yeah, yeah......

Anyhoo, this morning I came downstairs and chatted to said friend whilst Ian was in the shower.  We talked about weight gain.  He has a new job where he is living in a hotel most of the week and has big breakfasts and dinners etc so has gained a little weight over the year.  I mentioned that I have put on weight since moving to Wiltshire and do you know what he had the cheek to say?  Do you??  Hold onto your hats ladies this will shock...

"Yes, you've put a tonne on since I've know you"


My mouth dropped, eyes filled and showed him the door....  Well, no, I'm too polite.  I bit my tongue, made a coffee and hid upstairs until he left...

Can you believe it?!  Hope your weekend has got off to a better start?

Oh boy! You must have been pretty thin to start with. You look average weight to me in your pictures.

It's easy to forget that guys can be just as sensitive as we are about weight gain. Not that it was right for him to lash out at you like that, but it could be that he is feeling self-conscious about his own weight gain.
