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 169 in a Year of my Life

Looking for a desk or a work station.  White.  Large.

I've searched online and haven't found anything that's just right for my needs.

It's becoming a point of frustration.


This evening, the sunset was brief but beautiful.  I raced, on my new trike, to the lagoon and got this shot...

Here's another shot from my weekend in Brisbane ...

I've got so much to learn about photoshop.  I have tutorials on 'hold' to watch.  I have magazine articles to read and follow instructions from.  I have videos of photographer's seminars to watch.

All of this is waiting for when my work area is ready.

I am champing at the bit, to sit at my desk and focus on all of the creativity that's screaming to escape from within!

Patience is a virtue, or so I'm told.

The perfect 'set-up' will suddenly appear and I will be a happy chappy.

Today I am grateful for breakfast barbecues on a Sunday morning with good friends.  The smell of bacon and eggs cooking on the barby and the sound of happy laughter as we catch up with news and feel the love.

Nite all.
