Default MAJOR confidence boost!

So this weekend there's a modelling competition going on in my town - I thought it was only yesterday but apparently it's still going on today.

I just walked into town to get the newspaper and had just come out of the newsagent, putting my purse away, when I feel this tap on my shoulder, and it's this guy wearing a t-shirt advertising the contest and holding a clipboard.

He said: 'I just watched you walk all the way from one end of the mall to the other and you looked like you owned the place. Would you be interested in going on the catwalk this afternoon?'

I was so taken aback and so very pleased, even though I had to decline his offer. It was such a mega mega confidence booster for me because I've never really thought I was that pretty especially not when I was bigger and clearly now people think I am! The exercise and the diet is clearly working!

So now I'm just going to go and have a smug moment to myself in my room and feel amazing that a model scout approached me!

I had a date with a pile of blue fabric, some needles and thread or else I totally would have gone on it. I'm still happy about it now, I just feel so awesome.
