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!!

Not a Lot

Today has been a real 'relax and rejuvenate' kind of day.

I sat up in bed this morning doing some work. I partially wrote a newsletter, watched 2 training videos, cleared some emails and played Words With Friends!

Adoring Husband brought my coffee and made some breakfast for me, which was lovely.

I think it was around 11.30am when I was ready to ride to the Post Office. I checked the mail and did a small grocery shop before returning home to make lunch for Adoring Husband.

I did a crispy skinned chicken with a tomato/cucumber/capsicum/pear/avocado salsa and I made up a big batch of fresh watermelon, strawberry and mint juice.

I cooked up a double batch of Hainan chicken and then put a some Osso Bucco in the slow cooker.

AH and I watched TV until it was time to get ready for the club.

The club was uneventful, with quite a few friends out of town. It was a nice surprise to have Tweedle Dee turn up but I forgot to say good night to her and I've spent half the night feeling like a neglectful friend! Ugh!

It's after midnight, so I'm off to bed.

Have a happy weekend!

Nite all.
