I was preparing to get some new teeth :) No, not the mail order variety (I'm not that old), but some nice porcelain veneers across the top, and a couple of dental implants at the back.
In addition to this, I was looking into ways of perhaps surgically removing my moobs, aka man boobs. Hey, I've got the biggest jugs in a family of 5 women you know!
And once the old chest was flattened and the teeth once again pearly white, the aim was to look at a new and more hip wardrobe. I was to invest in clothes and footwear that not so much made me look younger, but gave the captain of this sinking ship a smart new look that would make me more appealing to the fairer sex ;-)
Alas that was then and this is now! My little empire crashed in the middle of 2011 :) So here I now sit with drooping breasts that resemble cows udders, and teeth that remind me of the roots of a garden weed.
Oh well, we'll just have to put mid-life purchases on the back burner until things pick up again, and pick up they will, of that I'm certain ;-)
