AH! This makes me so mad - I am a total ginger (although I prefer red-head!!) haha - I even spent my childhood with thick NHS specs too!! lovely!!
My MIL keeps going on about how 'we'd love a grandkid... even of they do end up ginger!!!' What the heck? I know she's just joking but after a while it just really upsets me!! Honestly - do people really think about what they're saying?! I think NOT!!
I can only see a little pic of your family but from what I see, they are absolutley gorgeous! Anyway, I personally think that true beauty is when people are happy, kind, loving and confident in who they are!!

yep and u look like stunning bride too!
i just dont understadn who they can be so rude and not think about anyone but themselves and then try and defend wot there saying.
yep it is crazy to say something like that based on a childs hair colour it has never bothered me y wud it? and my family dont mention it.
i think ppl just are scared of being different as from what they see as normal but to me they are not normal making comments like that.

Oh, thanks LauraG! (Although everyone looks good on their wedding day! haha)
But I agree - the world is full of people like that and it is really maddening at times!
Hey - I used to work at Waterstones and we had a book there all about gingers and I used to read it (on the sly of course, I was pretending to stack shelves etc!!) haha and it said that there is no natural genetic advantage to being ginger, and yet people are still here with red hair which can only leave one explanation - that when it comes down it, red heads are sexy and people are attracted to them!!
I know that sounds really weird but I reckon theres some truth to that!! HAHA - I would say that though!!
Well, I can't wait to be holding my own little ginger baby in my arms one day - and hubby is excited about the idea too!!!

I have to admit i am guilty as saying " i dont want a ginger baby " However, my mum used to say that and my little sister came out ginger and let me tell you, out of us 3 sisters, she is the most stunning, she's gorgeous, her hair is stunning, she is a size 6-8, she's funny, she's brainy ( she got 9 straight 1's in her standard grades and another 3 x 1's and a 2 in her highers ) !!!! Me and my other sister would love to be like her
I annoy the life out of my sister for being ginger, she annoys me for having a big arse, thats just the way we are x
I think people say things and they dont really mean them or they just dont think about what they say. xx
