The Unmeant Compliment

For the last couple of weeks I have generally been in an excellent mood. Even for me it's been a brilliant mood, I mean seriously you know how everyone always thinks of me as being happy all the time? For the last couple of weeks I have made that me look like a normal person.

Everything (Touch Wood!) has been going well, I've managed to keep up with the majority of my household chores, I've had quality time with my Family, I've completed several small projects, I've started running (well walking faster than normal) again and I've lost a lot of weight.

I've started wearing Make Up everyday again. I hate what it does to my skin afterwards but it does give me an undeniable glow.

And before any more people ask me, I'm not pregnant.

Whilst I was running a few chores with my Mum, I took a cheeky selfie in the car and uploaded it to Instagram, Facebook and Twitter.



I'm in a particularly good mood today. I feel pretty and I had a good weight loss over the last week so here's a #Selfie for you all to #Phwoar over!

Like I said, I was being cheeky. I then put my phone down and didn't check Facebook for a few hours, as I was busy hunting for cows. I got a bit of a shock when I did finally look at Facebook, all these comments telling me that I was beautiful, all these likes for a selfie I took in the car.

It was later, when BB, Tops and I were chatting that my unmeant compliment came. Tops had seen my selfie on Instagram, and had said it was a really lovely photograph. This meant that BB wanted to see the Selfie, so I loaded it up on my phone and showed it to him.

"Well, your hair is a bit different Mum, but you look like you normally do."

I paused for a second, I wasn't sure if he was about to follow it up with a cheeky retort but instead he smiled at me.

"BB, I want to thank you for that compliment." I finally said "It's nice to know that you think I'm pretty all the time."

BB hadn't meant it as a compliment, he had just said what he felt was true and that made my day.
