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!!

A Busy Day

I worked the shop alone today.

The Motivator has family in town for a couple of days so while she is feeling the love, I will be feeling happy in The Happy Abode.

There were plenty of holiday-makers through the shop, each with their own story, and some of those stories were pretty sad ones today. I had to 'shake it off' after I left work, because the sadness felt like it was hanging over me a little.

While yesterday was a big snap jewellery sales day, today saw a much bigger variety of stock walking out the door.

There were people from Kingaroy, Brisbane, Sunshine Coast, Gold Coast, Toowoomba, Coffs Harbour and a farming couple from south west of Kingaroy.

Primrose came to the shop and did some display styling for some rings that we have for sale.

Adoring Husband delivered some fresh prawns for my lunch.

I decided to shut the shop right on 3pm so that I could drive into town with Primrose for an afternoon of shopping and clubbing.

Adoring Husband came to the shop and helped me bring all the flags and signs in so that I could get home quickly. We left the trike in the shop and he drove me home.

I enjoyed my afternoon with Primrose and it's now after 11pm so it's definitely time for bed.

Nite all.
