‘Being the plain, plump one doesn’t Bother me’
Pamela ashton, 52, lives in Skelmersdale. She’s married to Paul, and has two grown-up children. She is the sister of Caroline.
I’d love to wave a magic wand and be as beautiful as my sister. I couldn’t be bothered to put in half the effort she does! with an elderly mother and a daughter with autism, plus hormones all over the place with the menopause, my appearance is my last priority.
I’d describe myself as pleasantly plump. I’m well aware my sister has an extraordinary figure, but being the plain, plump one doesn’t bother me, or I’d do something about it.
I’ve been married 23 years, and Paul has loved me thin, fat, young and old. That’s what marriage is, it goes deeper than the superficial.
Since Caroline turned 40, her appearance has become more important to her, and that’s a slippery slope. Sometimes I look at her in a dress, and would love to spend a day in that body. But then the feeling passes. I’m happy as me.
