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 Cracker

The Anzac Day service was a cracker ...

In the end, The Motivator and I decided not to open The Happy Abode today.

Instead, we went for a long walk along the beach discussing business, making some future plans and creating a mini roster for ourselves.

At 3.30pm I met The Blonde Bombshell at a specified beach spot so that we could do some 'grounding'. We were there for almost an hour and it was really nice to be 'just us' knee deep and bare foot in water as the tide came in.

She is doing so well, all things considered, and is a miracle on two legs. I look at her and shake my head in awe and admiration.

It is 8pm and I am sitting on the couch trying not to move too much because my body is protesting all the walking and grounding that I forced upon it today!!


I have to learn to do things in small steps when I have been so inactive for so long!

I believe that I will sleep well tonight.

Nite all.
