it's all down hill from here

So do you see the young woman or the old lady?

Sigh. I was going to post about how after thirty I noticed lines on my face that weren't there before, this year I've been noticing my hands getting older looking, though I'd taken comfort from the fact that when I pinch the sking on the back of my hand it still springs back into place pretty instantly (I always remember my mother saying that to me!).

But today I - I found my first grey hair.

I've suspected before, but always assumed that they were actually just blond ones, I still have a good few very blonde hairs - but not this one, it's without doubt shiny white.

I've always been a staunch supporter or naturally grey or white hair, I don't think women are wrong to 'let themselves go' and let the grey through, as Trinny and Susannah put it.

But I'm not ready! It's too soon! Aaaaagh! It's jsut the stress ageing me prematurely, I'm sure of it!

I love my grey hair....

I always wondered about "Just For Men" for beards, if you dont like grey beard hair (and I like mine) then just shave no?

Or bizarrely chinned?

I got a grey hair at 25.

They don't bother me though, it's not like I'm going bald or anything. (now that would be bad).

I've got tonnes of grey but I knew I was genetically pre-disposed to it as my sisters went grey young. My Mum never let herself go grey, she always kept up the gorgeous strawberry blonde. I'm not ready to be grey jusy yet, I'll keep dye-ing!!

I've always been a bit jealous of people who get grey hairs. In my family we simply fade out. Rat coloured blonde fades to non-shiny non-coloured dead-looking hair.

So, for me, please be happy! (And do not listen to MW... scary... :)

Oh, I know what you mean - I've already faded from blond to mousey brown...

I do like nice quality grey hair, really - it's the interim process, and it just seems too soon to start!
