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!!

Desk of Strength

Earlier in the week, I booked Adoring Husband to assemble the new sit/stand desk that he picked up from IKEA for me, on his way from holidays last week.

While I was relaxing in bed this morning with my coffee, I heard the annoying sound of power tools, which sounded way too close for comfort. After about ten minutes, I realised what Adoring Husband was doing, and remembered that the annoying noise was for my benefit!

Soon enough, he appeared in the bedroom declaring that he had done as much as he could at this point and he was waiting for me to clear the area in my workspace so that he could continue.

Remember the photo that I posted on Wednesday?

This is the 'after' shot ...

I must admit that my legs got quite tired after about two hours of standing and bouncing on the rebounder while I worked, so I wound down the desk and sat on my exercise ball on the rebounder.

Even though I spent many hours at my desk today (not even stopping for lunch), as far as work goes, I was very unproductive.

Tomorrow is Art class - Woot! Woot!

Hopefully, the remainder of my weekend will be highly productive at my desk. I feel like I have just a few small gaps to fill with my technical education before I can surge forward and make headway with the website. Once I've filled in those gaps, I can get started on other important business opportunities.

Anyway, enough of this frivolity.

I'm off to bed.

Nite all.
