Short and sweet ?


I've noticed a lot of my blogland friends have joined in with Julie's Height of Summer project  just lately. As others have been brave - I thought I'd play along too....
I've always been the short one around here, having three sons who now tower over me and a husband who is taller too ( he is 5'8" ) .... I'm always asking them to reach something for me from the top of the cupboard...and when we went out recently and met some of our son's friends- yep I was the 'shortie' of the bunch.



I think I am about 5'3 - so maybe not the shortest - but certainly not very tall!
There's many a time when I have to ask a poor unsuspecting gentleman or young manager in Tescos to get the last of something that I need at the back of the top shelf- and they have the gall to put the Hello magazine on the highest shelf at our store and I can never reach it....
Having said all that - I would say I'm around about friends Deb and Karen's height - or maybe a teensy weensy weensy bit taller ?

I'm definitely going to start wearing high heels to crop days in future! Great post and photos of you with all those tall young men!

You don't know how good it is to see my 'little' idea hopping around blogland like this!

I love how you've noticed you're taller than your friends [a true *small* victory!].

Thanks for joining in - you're on the board now: http://pinterest.com/notesonpaper/the-height-of-summer-2012/

Wow your boys certainly do tower over you! Loved reading this :)

Oh, I love this post, Denise. When you, Deb, Karen and I meet next year I will be the tallest, for sure - I'm 5'6'ish - I think Carrie is a tad taller than me. My sister is 5'9' and my great grandmother was 6' tall. I need to do a post similar to this one!
