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!!

Movie Sadness

The following pictures represent me at the end of watching the movie 'Me Before You' today ...

I look forward to buying the dvd so that I can watch it at home in the privacy of my own lounge room, so that I can sob hysterically without worrying about other patrons.

Fabulous movie.

Go see it.

Take tissues.

Lots of them.

I had a great morning with the girls. Lady Lynn picked me up just after 8.30am and we met Rebel Mardi at the cinema. Luckily, we snared our favourite seats and we all enjoyed the movie and the crying from the back row.

Afterwards, we walked across the road and enjoyed coffee and cake in a comfortable and quiet cafe located at the back of a home decor store. It was very relaxing and the cake (gluten free white chocolate and macadamia nut brownie) was delicious. Rebel Mardi and I shared one because the pieces were HUGE. Lady Lynn thoroughly enjoyed her date scone too.

I arrived home to make the marinade for the chicken wings that we're having for dinner and a salsa to go with it. Adoring Husband will put the wings in the oven an hour before I get home and it will all be ready to sit down and watch the footy when I get home tonight.

It was a great day. Now I need to make myself presentable for a night at the Bowls Club.

Nite all.
