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!!

On Monday She Rested

I spent almost the entire day in my workspace today. Twenty minutes was spent organising and the remainder of my day was spent listening to music, training the dogs to stay OUT ...

... researching how to create a website, clearing out my emails, taking photos, editing photos ... 

and thoroughly enjoying the ambience of my new space. As you can see, on the floor in the basket and in a pile on the bottom left, is the stuff that still needs to be homed. Once I've cleared out the cupboards of my beads, there will be room for all of this.

I only surfaced from the room to make lunch, and then reluctantly, when it was time to make dinner and actually join Adoring Husband in the land of the living. He even sent me a text during the day to enquire as to whether I was actually still in the house. I replied that I was, but that he couldn't be certain unless he ventured to my end of the house, because a text didn't actually prove anything!

Tomorrow is another date day for us. We'll spend the morning at the cinema, and we need to furnish the empty space in our family room, so we'll be searching for something comfortable and stylish and inexpensive. 

Wish us luck!

Nite all.
