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!!

One Two Three Blurgh

It is 6pm and I am still in my pyjamas.

Adoring Husband bought what he thought was a box of gluten free chocolate ice creams from Go Natural yesterday. We didn't check the package because it was in the fridge with all the other GF ice creams, so we assumed ... and you know what assuming does???

Yes you do.

While Adoring Husband was at SES, I helped myself to one of these ice creams. I was down to the final bite, when I decided to check the packaging. They were not GF.

I suffered through the night and all day today, but it was much worse than my usual reaction to gluten, so I'm wondering what else I had during the day to contribute to my discomfort. It has been incredibly unpleasant and even prevented me from attending the Bowls Club for our usual Friday night social outing.

My big plans for the markets tomorrow have also been cancelled. Even though I hadn't made contact with the market organisers, it was my plan to do so today. I guess it just wasn't meant to be.

I have spent all day in bed reading and watching Netflix.

Today, my body is not my friend.

So I have nothing else to report.

Nite all.
