I had my IUD removed without anaesthetic and another inserted. Removal was a sharp pain that quickly subsided and I didn't feel like I should have had pain relief. My friend had the same procedure and said it was excruciating. Guess we are all different (and some gynos are better than others too!).

Thrifting, androgyny, comfort, self expression, bucking trends....gee, sounds just like when I was growing up in the 80s. I don't think there is anything new here.

Fabulous woman and an incredibly prolific songwriter/storyteller. A whopping 5000+ songs written over her career!

Meeting Simon Le Bon would've changed my life too 😉

@lawyermummy It's good to start with the things you can control. Don't overlook improving your gut health. Your gut works like a second brain (strange, right?) and can alleviate all kinds of symptoms from hot flushes to mild depression. A good pre and pro biotic can do wonders.

Holly, you look fantastic! I'm 52 and NoBo. A combination of good genes and a mother who didn't let me play in the midday sun has really paid off. I look after my skin - GoTo all the way! - with a few added extras, but to be honest, I don't notice the difference most of the time. I feel fortunate to not live in a big city where looks are more "competitive". Up here it's a pretty natural vibe.

I cannot get over the ego of some of these "influencers"! They really are out of control.

Wow, how original. Beautiful actress does nude scene, gets more work. Would never have thought of it...

Motivating teenagers is hard at the best of times but under these circumstances it is nearly impossible. I had twin daughters do their HSC last year and I was deeply frustrated by their lack of commitment and organisation when studying from home, at the same time as totally sympathising with how hard it was to be without their usual social stimulus and routine. When they finally graduated I felt like I needed an award too!

My friend discovered she had a serious heart problem via her fitbit. She was wearing it when she woke through the night to see her heart rate go through the roof. Realising it wasn't the first time it had happened, she took herself to the dr!

@anonymous And did you see him on 7.30 the other night? Trying to convince us that the mission in Afghanistan was not a failure?

@mamamia-user-482898552 Yep. Pretty insulting.

Maybe get your boyfriend into Bro-To, the Go-To line for men. Then you can definitely share!!

I agree with 12 of those comments, so I not so divisive for me!

@abandoned abroad I'm so sorry you're in that situation. I can't imagine how it feels to be abandoned by your own country. This government has let us all down, but especially those overseas. I truly hope you can return soon.

@rush Haha, I was gonna say something similar. NO-ONE should ever wear nude bike shorts. No-one should wear bike shorts full stop. Unless you're riding a bike. Ugh.

They could have sent "Covid Marshalls" to those suburbs with a high proportion of ESL people without it being so dramatic. Police presence is frightening and confrontational rather than educational. We just want everyone to know and follow the rules, right?

I love that it's not all boring and white and looks like someone hired someone else to decorate. This feels like Cara had a real say in it all. Good on her! I'd move in tomorrow!

So basically, they're all just knockoff Dr Martens!

A spoonful of Caramilk Philly is my after dinner treat. So good!
