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!!

Done in!

I had a very late night and a very early morning and a fabulous lunch with a select number of ladies and four glasses of wine, which has left me feeling decidedly buggered tonight!

I didn't take any pics today, but we ate at Cafe Tapas and it was just as good as when Adoring Husband and I were there last week.

The Reality TV Queen did not like it and won't return ... but nobody is surprised by that, because she is very difficult to please when it comes to food! I think everybody else was happy, although I think a couple of the dishes were a bit bland, but my three tapas choices were delicious, as were my desserts, which Rebel Mardi and I shared.

As usual, after lunch, we stopped for a couple of drinks at The Speckled Hen's house, but The Blonde Bombshell and I didn't stay long.

I discovered this video this afternoon, will a helpful tip to putting doona covers on a doona. I'll try it next time I wash my bedding. It's gotta be easier that my current strategy, which is similar to a gym workout! I may have posted something similar in the past, but I forgot all about it and never put it to the test. Hopefully, I will remember to try it next time!

It's almost 8pm and I am well and truly ready for bed. I'm certain that I can hear my soft fluffy pillows calling my name, so ...

Nite all.
