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!!

Still Working on it.

Fingers crossed, by tomorrow evening, all things going well, my website will be launched.

I'm so sick of typing those words ... surely they will come true soon!

Our car is still not repaired, so we have no transport at the moment .. we can only drive around our little town because the car randomly decides that it can't go faster than 40kph.

It's my birthday on Sunday and our 7th wedding anniversary on Monday, but because of our transport issues, we haven't been able to get gifts for each other, which is fine with me.

Adoring Husband got into The Bay today via other means and bought me two bouquets of flowers. Beautiful colourful Gerberas for my birthday and gorgeous red roses for our anniversary ...

What a lovely surprise that was!

And these are the gifts that I bought myself! One, I asked to be gift wrapped when I ordered it online and the other I wrapped myself. I also wrote a motivational note to myself in a birthday card, which I'll share here on Sunday!

Now I need to sleep.

Nite all.
