Now that I have grabbed your attention with that headline can I just point out that yes, I am still ill (flu fatigued and-sinusitis and all that entails) and am unable to do much other than watch or listen to, (while gently nodding off) TV. I was watching Alan Titchmarsh chat show today and the topic was about naturism and the gist of it was that the government are thinking of relaxing the laws on outdoor nudity. Naturally the obligatory wrinkly elderly man (why is it never a hunky Bradley Cooper lookalike who wants to flaunt all?) appeared naked albeit from a strategically placed bunch of bananas (couldn't they have thought of anything more original than that I ask you?) amongst other ( dressed ) guests. I don't have a problem with nudity as such and whatever anyone does within the privacy of their own homes is their business (at the moment they would have to crank their heating up a fair bit though), heck I have even been known to discreetly whip off my bikini top in my youth on holiday for the almost all over tan, but I do not fancy the idea of bumping into people in the altogether walking about the local high street/supermarket etc. I remember when the boys were younger steering them clear of nudist beaches on holiday to save embarrassing questions. The worst thing was coming across such beaches unawares because unless you are local you didn't even know that is what they were. I must admit I haven't tried googling about it, goodness knows what might pop up on the computer, so I may well have got hold of the wrong end of the stick but how would you feel if you were enjoying a cream puff and a coffee and the couple at the next table had everything on display? Call me old fashioned but I prefer my bits to be covered outside,unlike like ted in my photo. Do you like his fig leaf? Maybe some of you are naturists and can provide a different take on this? What do you think?
P.S. Yes, I am still chuckling to myself, but it has brightened up a miserable day!
