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!!

A Slight Disappointment

I strongly doubt that tomorrow will be my launch day for the website.

Maybe Saturday, if I'm very conscientious and very lucky.

This will probably sound like double dutch to some of you, but I updated the WooCommerce plugin and there was a problem with the update - which I discovered was a 'thing' when I went Google searching for a fix.

This meant that I lost some of the photos and all of the accompanying information from the shop. It took me more than two hours to rebuild it all and then one of the photos wouldn't load the right size. I still haven't figured that one out.

My other problem is that something has appeared on one of the pages and I can't figure out how to get rid of it.

This problem prevented me from building my jewellery shop today, so that will be my mission tomorrow, along with creating the Art and Craft page.

It's going to take longer than a day and I'm feeling the pressure!

On the bright side, the order that I mentioned in yesterday's post, finally arrived today! Wahoo!

The dining table is now covered in photography gear, jewellery, boxes, the gorgeous packaging that came in the order and some of Adoring Husband's 'stuff'. That too will be a job and a half to clear eventually. I still have quite a few photographs to take yet - but they are not urgent right now.

For now, I'm going to get my 'sweet sleep' essential oil and attempt to have a restful night. My brain wouldn't shut down last night and it took forever to fall asleep ... only to be disturbed at 1.30am by the dogs for a toilet break ... then it took forever to fall back to sleep!

I have to fit a LOT into tomorrow and my brain will need to be on the ball.

So ...

Nite all.
