I'm 4'11 on a good day with a following wind.
I cannot reach things on supermarket shelves or in other peoples kitchens.
I have to drive my car with my nose on the windscreen otherwise my feet don't reach the pedals.
In group photo's I look like I'm sitting down whilst other people are standing, or I look like I'm in a row of my own.
When mini skirts were fashionable mine were always knee length.
My children and grandchildren all tower over me by the time they are 10.
There are some good things about being short.
I've never had to wear flats so as not to tower over my partner.
I'm assertive, I've needed to be otherwise I could be ignored.
