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!!

List Blues

I made a 'to do' list this morning, because I forgot to make it last night.

If I don't have a list of planned goals for the day, I am easily distracted and I get a lot of 'nothing' accomplished.

When there is no list to follow, I 'start' many tasks and 'finish' few.

So this was my list ...

1.  Photograph the new diaries and journals and put them on the website.

2.  Finish a product review that I've started and post it on the site.

3.  Create a newsletter to send to my subscribers.

4.  Do some manifesting.

5.  Spend time on my new idea.

I was in my workspace for more than seven hours and I only completed one thing from my list!

I photographed all of the diaries and journals that were delivered last week. I edited the photos and resized them. Then I added them to the shop with the sizes, descriptions, prices, tags and other information required.

I created a pin for Pinterest with a collage of some of the diaries and journals.

That's it.

I didn't even leave the room for lunch ... although I did take about 20 minutes to put some lamb shanks in the slow cooker.

So I obviously under estimated the work involved and I feel a bit disappointed that I only finished one task, however, I didn't get distracted so I know that it's been a full day's work.

At least I don't have to write a 'to do' list for tomorrow! Haha.

So I'm off to bed for a good night's sleep so that I'm ready for a full focussed day tomorrow.

Nite all.
