The Day of Judgement...


For a very long time people have been telling me I look like Maureen Lipman! Even on the day, in my early twenties, when I was dressed up doing bridesmaid duty for my friend, her dad wandered up to me and said, "Do you know, you look just like Maureen Lipman?" Now, I'm a huge fan of Ms. L - I have a load of her books, I think she's very funny and all that but it does get a bit weird sometimes (and I won't mention the fact that she's a looooot older than me)!
I hadn't thought about it for a while, until a couple of weeks ago when the lady herself came to our humble town to do a talk or audience with or something like that. I wasn't able to go, but a load of people from the church went - and yes, for the next few days, I got a whole load of "Ooh, did you know, you look just like Maureen Lipman!"
So, faithful readers of the Teapot, this is the moment of truth! Above you will see two pictures - me and the Lipster... so, do I really look like her then?

You could be mistaken for her daughter I suppose.

When 18 & going through my curly perm stage I was likened to "Angie Watts" from Easternders (on more than one occassion). Not only did this traumatise me but I now refuse to liken anyone to someone else. So I say "No" you look like a very pretty you x x x

When I had chickenpox as a 21year old, I had such a high fever I was hallucinating and I thought I was Maureen Lipman....

thanks for leaving a comment on my blog... it was a lovely day we had by the coast, even though it was freezing cold, the lighting was really beautiful. And it is nice to know that someone is reading my blog once in a while ;)

Ivonne: I've enjoyed reading your blog, and that picture was gorgeous, definitely a "wish I was there" type picture! :D

Shaz: lol - are you waiting for me to get on with the "5 things you didn't know about me" thing you tagged me with? And were those three "waiting" posts to show your impatience or because you hit send too many times by accident! ;) I'll try and do it today - honest!

I absolutely can't stand that woman. Thankfully, you look nothing like her.
