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!!

Here's To Us!!

Well, the landlord has approved our application and the lease has been issued, so all we have to do is sign it and deliver it to the real estate office tomorrow.

The Motivator and I are now business partners and as of 1st August, will take over the lease of our chosen commercial premises.

We have a fabulously perfect workspace in which to run workshops, courses and classes, sell our lovely wares, run our respective businesses and websites and a lovely area to relax and socialise with our friends and lovely community members.

The Motivator has already drawn up the floor plan, and with her skills, figured out the perfect design for the space, so now we get to furnish and decorate it to our liking.

We have many items on our 'to do' list before we even move in and one of my most important tasks is to create a 'Photography for Beginners' course! That's going to be an interesting little exercise and yet another huge learning curve ... seems to be the story of my life these days!

Anyway, I am ... that is ... WE ... are very excited about the opportunities that will present themselves over the coming months and we plan on putting our heart and soul into this venture.

Raise your glass and toast to our success!! Cheers to us!!

I'm looking forward to our lady's luncheon tomorrow, which will be Christmas in July at the Woodgate Pub and will involve a boat ride across the river. It should be a fun day.

All this excitement has worn me out and I'm off to bed for an early night!

Nite all.
