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!!

Just UGH!

What a crappy day.

Today is twelve years since my Mum died and I reckon it has been one of my worst anniversaries to date. I've been feeling miserable and out of sorts all day. I haven't been able to focus on anything and I've been moody and cranky.

So I've decided to write the day off and file it under 'bereavement'.

First thing this morning as I opened Facebook, there was a musical meme staring me, of Mum's favourite muppet .. Kermit The Frog .. and the background music was 'Rainbow Connection' which Mum loved and often played for Vegan Chickie when she was a baby.

The quote on the meme was...

'The only thing making you unhappy are your own thoughts. Change them."

The quote only served to cement the sad thoughts in my head!

Tomorrow I will change my thoughts ... not today.

Just Ugh!

Nite all.
