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!!

Birthday Girls

This morning, I had three, yes THREE parcels to pick up!

Some new shoes ...

... some snap jewellery bracelets, another bracelet, a couple of things to put away for birthday and Christmas gifts and a big catalogue of journal prices.

So that was fun!

After I got my second coffee for the day, I rode to the beach and sat in the sunshine for 30 minutes watching this ...

I posted this pic in a Facebook group that practices gratitude and wrote a little story about how grateful I was for this view and what it means to me.

Because the day was so beautiful, it was a slow and steady ride home.

After lunch, I spent a lot of time in my workspace but didn't seem to get a lot done. Obviously, my productivity relates totally to whether or not I write a 'to do' list!! That's a lesson I really need to learn and absorb!

I drew the winners of the Romance Your Life challenge and made two people very happy.

And speaking of 'happy' ...

Big fat happy birthdays to two special women in my life.

Happy birthday to Bubbles, my baby girl.

Happy birthday to The Motivator, my friend.

I spoke to Bubbles and I know all about her day - exhausting as it was - she had to work, but at least she got to spend the evening with Knight in Shining Armour and his family, where she was spoilt rotten - as usual!

I hope that The Motivator was equally spoilt by The Fisher King during their day together.

It's now the end of my day. I'm happy.

Nite all.
