Okay we can all complain about the DFLs, but one upside is the Yummy Mummies. We all know what I mean; well turned out early 30s to early 40s mums, keep in good shape through a mix of yoga, wheatgrass shots and having to push your designer buggies up Lewesian hills. To the Yummy Mummies: I see you making an effort, don't pretend you are just doing it for your own benefit. Here's a fan showing some appreciation.

My services have never been in such demand. I'm thinking of employing an assistant. £ negotiable. Huge benefits. Anyone interested?

I'm really good looking and I get the eye from them all the time, they love it. So glad their husbands move them down here then spend all day commuting back up. Easy pickings. Love to 'brush past' when they block the pavement.

That's actually really creepy and disturbing, you don't really think that's normal behaviour do you?
I call into question the claim that you're "really good looking", definitely sounds like the act of a fugly bloke.

However, most of them aren't very yummy at all. Just bulky, older than they like, and stuck with a brat all day on their own. Half of them are incapable of driving either their over-sized prams or cars around our small town.....

You sound very modest James, the funny thing about being "good looking" (fit and good looking are two different things) is that beauty is in the eye of the beholder, just because you think you're good looking doesn't make it so.
Share a photo and we'll judge.
I seriously doubt if any woman would want a random letch brushing past them in the street (good looking or not), I think you've been watching too many adult movies ("oh my we're stuck in a lift, whatever should we do to pass the time").

I think you are taking this far too seriously. I don't watch movies or do date sights because I get so much anyway. I was just saying the dflw's are very very attracted to me.

I get that bit James, but you ruined a good joke by adding "Love to 'brush past' when they block the pavement", which is just downright creepy (good looking or not)...

Several responders are missing the point above. I don't regard myself as yummy or special or otherwise super-fashionable. I'm just a mum, getting on with my life. I drive an ordinary car, in an efficient manner ( I can park within two white lines, know how wide it is so I don't block roads if there's a parked car on one side, and can see the front corners of it over the steering wheel) and, as Estruscan points out, strive to stop my kids running riot in public places like spoiled little brats.

Leweslad and James - you may stand a chance yet. After all, it must get tiresome being attached to those bearded hipster alphas, however toned and energetic they appear. And all that cash and witty conversation must get a bit dull. I reckon a smutty glance from the local knuckle draggers would make their day!

Woah, you're a woman???? Seriously poor effort there in your ageist body shaming of "bulky" "older" women. I bet you find Jim Davidson hilarious and refer to yourself as your husband's "lady wife". What a grim post. You think no woman in Lewes with kids - none of whom actually label themselves "yummy mummies" you realise - can't drive and is generally hopeless in every regard, including bringing up their children? What a horribly judgemental world you inhabit. Anyway, I'll leave your perfect non bulky frame to return to your perfect driving skills and your perfect children

Honestly what's wrong with just saying that women who make an effort to look good, do in fact look good. I'm not saying I am going to run out and make advances on them. I like attractive women around the place to give it a bit of class, what's the issue? Quite frankly, I am sure they are all riddled with neurosis and would make terrible bedfellows.

So @local, can you please provide a translation of your rant? You have again missed the point – there are an increasing number of (probably mainly) DFL mothers who look and behave very differently to us local mums. Many appear to be trying to follow various celebrity / magazine / TV stereotypes in terms of their look, behaviour, attitude and 'accessories', ie the 'yummy mummy' tag referred to in the original post. The vast majority of said people are nothing like the genuine article (young, attractive, slim, wealthy, not-short-of-paid-help, etc), nor are they like Lewesians. I suspect you may be one, from the fury of your posts?

Not that there's anything wrong with making up a forum name by the way!
I just couldn't think of one, so just plumped for my own name. Probably not the smartest thing to do on a forum!

I don't think a translation is necessary since I wrote my post in the English language. There is no fury in what I wrote, just astonishment. It's a complete misreading of most people that they are attempting to be "yummy mummies" or anything else for that matter. To assume that fellow Lewes mothers - because they dress slightly differently to you - are attempting to ape celebrities in magazines is to assume monumental vacuousness. What should they be wearing? What would be acceptable to you? If someone makes an effort, does that provide an excuse to deride that effort? I do not regard myself as a yummy mummy any more than you do. I just don't judge people and find them wanting based on their clothes rather than the content of their character. What I think is dangerous is this compulsion to divide - local mum's vs DFLs. Brits vs foreigners. Black vs white. We all belong to one race: the human race. Stop bullying and trying to find fault in people who are simply going about their daily lives, trying to make ends meet and bring up their kids - as is the case for most of us. And most of all, stop presuming to know perfect strangers. It is you missing the point.
