Nice to see you!

Three major events occurred for me last year (2010), all in the space of about 2 weeks. I turned 50. The following day I got married. Two weeks later, my oldest daughter became pregnant with her first child and my first grandchild.

Most middle-aged people will tell you that in their minds, they still feel 20 something. It's the same for me.

Wasn't it only yesterday that I was planning a night out with guys from the surf club? That gorgeous new perm. Flaired, cuffed denims and the red t-shirt with the off-the-shoulder frill. Corked platform wedgies. **sigh**

Suddenly I'm looking in the mirror and wondering how 30 years can flash by so damned quickly!

So here I am in cyberspace, sharing my genuine shock and horror with anyone who'll listen and maybe I'll even meet some other over 50s who find themselves in the same predicament!

Welcome to my dilemna!!

Day 150 in a Year of my Life

The house repairs are coming along nicely ...

Today, I started a page in facebook for my photography.  It's NOT as a business or to sell my photos, but just to share them with people outside my own circle.  Here is the link to it ...

I haven't put all the photos that I want there yet, but I'll get it done over the coming days.

Squirt and I watched the sun set again this afternoon ...

... tomorrow she returns home.  She has to work over Easter.  It's been nice having her here - as Adoring Husband said "A welcome distraction".

I hope that her time here was a 'welcome distraction' for her too.

Today I am grateful for Adoring Husband's vigilance in making sure that everything is right with our house - he is certainly keeping the builders and tradesmen on their toes.  He has picked up a couple of mistakes and is making sure they put it right.

Sometimes his 'Sheldon-like' attention to detail can be a blessing :D

Nite all.
