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!!

Caught Up

We caught up with the family for lunch today and spent two hours talking about the new property, family stuff and future plans.

The lunch itself wasn't very fulfilling and it's possible that the Cattleman may have gone looking for more food after we went our separate ways. In future, we need to think more carefully about where to eat, so that everyone can be satisfied. Adoring Husband and I are not big eaters these days, so a light salad with a bit of protein is enough for us, but not for most people.

I thoroughly enjoyed spending time with the gang and hope to see them more often now that they live close by.

I think I've convinced Adoring Husband to take me on a movie date on Thursday!! (not that he needed much convincing)

Tomorrow is the monthly lady's luncheon, so I'd best get to bed for a decent night of sleep. It's 11pm and I think I can squeeze in twenty minutes of reading before I send out the ZZZzzzzzs.

Nite all.

LOL....yes my son is a big eater. We're a bit like you Roz....salad and small protein sort of people but we have changed our eating habits of late where we have a slightly larger lunch and just a very light snack for dinner....maybe just a small tin of tuna/salmon or small yoghurt. We find we sleep better without a heavy meal in our bellies.
