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!!

Great Aunty

Yes, I know that I'm a great Aunty!! But I'm actually going to be a Great Aunty!

Squirt (my little sister), announced on Facebook yesterday, that her oldest girl and her boyfriend are expecting a baby, due in December.

I feel a little disappointed that she didn't phone me with the news before announcing it on FB, but I honestly can't remember how I told her about Chicklet! It's highly likely that she is giving me a taste of my own medicine, so I can hardly complain!

Today, I made up a little gift pack, wrote on two cards - one for the Nana-to-be and one for the parents-to-be and sent them off in the mail.

This is how it was announced to her ...

... and also how she announced it on FB.

Crazy family.

I've been de-cluttering, and in the last two days have delivered five bags of books to the local craft store, including self help books, recipe books, novels, autobiographies and books on health. I have about 100 more recipe books that I'm going to take down there as well.

There is still plenty more de-cluttering to do.

I'm looking forward to seeing the Chicklet family on Thursday, which is the day that Adoring Husband and I drive down to the Sunny Coast for my dental appointment. Just a day trip this time, but I'll be babysitting for four days in the first week of June, so that will be fun!

Well, it's 11pm and I'm off to do some more reading.

Nite all.
