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!!

Farewell Lovely

Today, we farewelled the Garden Fairy.

It was a lovely graveside service and her husband, Kindly Kel, was surrounded by friends and family as we fondly remembered her beautiful smile and bright loving eyes and we heard stories about her life, her garden and her family.

It was a glorious day with clear blue skies, the birds were singing loudly in the trees and there were kangaroos grazing all around us. A picture perfect day.

From the cemetery, we drove to the HB Hotel where there was a spread of nibbly food, tea and coffee and where everybody mingled and explained how they knew the Garden Fairy and gave a short history of their friendship. It was quite lovely to hear their stories.

Adoring Husband and I didn't stay for long and after we said our goodbyes, feeling quite peckish, we decided to lunch at AquaVue. I had an all day breakfast of GF pancakes with bacon and banana, while AH enjoyed GF salt and pepper calamari with salad.

We walked across the road to the crystal shop where I purchased some selenite, citrine and smokey quartz.

We walked to Go Natural, but first stopped at 'Gypsies, Tramps and Thieves' where I bought a top that was on sale at 50% off. A Ruby YaYa top that even at 50% off was still pricey, but beautiful.

We stocked up on organic salad items, GF coconut ice cream, hemp and blueberry coconut yoghurt and chunks of organic 70% dark choc for grating over our desserts.

The day passed so quickly and we arrived home at 3.30pm which gave us an hour to unpack our goodies and get ready for the club.

No luck for me, but it was nice to sit with the girls and get poked and prodded by Beauty while she checked out my new top. Freaky girl she is.

I'm looking forward to my Saturday morning at the shop, but I'd best get some sleep. It'll be midnight before I know it!

Nite all.
