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!!

My Brain is Resting

We started today by spending an hour with our financial advisors. Pleasant, but hardly necessary. A phone call would have been easier and just as effective.

Before we came home, we stopped to check our mail, and I was pleased to receive a package that I've been waiting almost 2 weeks for. From there we came directly home so that Adoring Husband could pack the car and head off on his road trip.

I spent part of the day setting up the tables in my dining area, covering them with my new velvety teal blankets and then walking three kilometres (my watch measured it!) back and forth from my workspace to the dining room to display my wares!

There is still a lot to display yet! It feels like it's never-ending!

I have a lot planned for the next few days including grooming the dogs, cleaning out both the fridge and the pantry, getting the washing up to date, chalk painting the bedside tables, cooking a roast and bulk batch of Hainan chicken, finishing my display and possibly cleaning the windows if I feel like it.

It's almost 11pm and I need to be up with the sun tomorrow for work, so I'm off to bed.

Nite all.
