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!!

Very Busy and Important

This will be a very short post because I am busy getting things organised for tomorrow's gathering.

I need to marinate some chicken wings so that I can cook them first thing tomorrow morning. I also have to cook up some mini meatballs with a dipping sauce.

I'm making a key lime tart and some energy balls for sweets to have with tea and coffee.

There'll be a cheese platter, veggie sticks and two dips with crackers.

My new punch bowl will be filled with a non-alcoholic punch, and I'll have two pitchers, one with margarita mix and the other full of cosmopolitan mix.

So much to do, so little time!

I guess I'll see some of you tomorrow (or today as you are reading this now), but I'll be sharing photos here in tomorrow night's post, which I hope will show what a fabulous time everyone has had!!

*happy dance*

Nite all.
