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!!

Big Boost

I had the day off today.

My hair appointment was for 10.30am and I was trying a new hairdresser at my old salon. I'll call her Sely Scissorhands.

After three hours, this was my result ...

... Please excuse the 'selfie' (and I'm in my pyjamas!) but I'm very happy with the outcome and I will definitely return to Sely Scissorhands. She used three different colours for my foils, gave me a trim, blow dried and straightened my hair.

She was easy to chat with and the three hours passed surprisingly fast.

I felt totally boosted!

I left the salon and pedalled to the shop to see The Motivator to show her my hair, have a quick catch-up, check out the new stock that had just arrived - she will be having her day off tomorrow, so we won't catch up again until Saturday.

I did a quick grocery shop and returned home to spend time with Adoring Husband before he left for his SES training night.

It's only 8pm but I feel ready for bed already. I haven't done anything all day, but I feel like I've put in a full day's work! Bizarre.

Ok, I'm done.

Nite all.
