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!!

Berry Berry Tired

It's been a BIG day.

A busy day at work, followed by a trip into The Bay.

We attempted to pick up some stock that was supposed to arrive from Maryborough, only to discover that the order hadn't been followed up by the young girl The Motivator had spoken to, so the stock has probably gone now.

Two shops that we wanted to pick up some plastic bags from, were both closed, so that was a futile exercise.

We then had to choose from two signs that we've been offered by Stocklands. We made our choice and now have to bide our time to see if we actually receive them.

Then we went shopping for work clothes.

THAT was a lot of fun. I may have got a bit carried away, in fact, we BOTH may have.

The thing is ... my wardrobe is full of clothes, but few of them are really suitable for work ... especially now that the weather is warming up. I have lots of singlet tops and shorts, but few dressy Summery clothes.

So today, I remedied that situation.

We bought some of the same clothes, so there will be days we MAY turn up in an unintentional uniform! But that's ok.

By the time we hopped in the car to drive home, at around 8pm, we were both exhausted. It's now 10.30 and I'm off to bed, completely worn out.

Here is some more of our lovely stock from the shop.

Nite all.
