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!!

Happiness at The Happy Abode

I love my friends.

Lady Lynn, Reality TV Queen, Old Speckled Hen, The Whinging Pom and Maid Marian are always here to support me during my highest and lowest moments. They make me feel warm and fuzzy and I know that they don't all read this blog, but to those of you who do ... thank you so much for being with me today. I can't tell you what it means to me. I love you all.

Others like Rebel Mardi, Tweedle Dee, Woman of Many Talents and The Blonde Bombshell were not able to be here because of other commitments, but you were all sorely missed.

It was nice to meet some new people, including a couple of new customers who we invited during the week. Other business owners came along to support us, which was a lovely surprise.

We even made some sales, including five of my photos!! That was the last thing that I expected and was completely blown away by the enthusiasm and positive comments about my work.

Today was definitely good for my ego.

The best part was sharing the love with my Biz Partner, The Motivator, and with Adoring Husband and the Fisher King.

I honestly feel on top of the world and I know the our future will be bright and successful because we fill our shop with love and we love what we do. It's a no brainer really!

Five others expressed an interest in the photography courses too! That could just give me the numbers to get started ... now to get that training room up to scratch!

Anyway, here are a few pics of the day. We even had a lucky door prize, which was a $50 voucher to spend in our shop :)

Now, I am absolutely exhausted and need to sleep!

Nite all.
