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!!

I Do Like Mondays

I was excited to go to work this morning and I arrived bright and early - though not as early as The Gypsy!

She was waiting in the car park when I parked my trike at the back door.

Even though I went to bed early last night, it was stupid o’clock by the time I fell asleep.

I listened to 2 x twenty minute meditations, but even with my mind quiet, my body felt energised and I just couldn’t relax enough to fall asleep. I refused to look at the clock, for fear of adding pressure, because I knew I had to be up extra early for meditation.

It felt like I was asleep for about 20 minutes when the alarm woke me and it was difficult to climb out of bed and get moving, but I got to work with time to spare.

It was another good day in the shop and still the annual holiday makers are strolling in and admiring our space.

Queensland had a disappointing loss in the State of Origin last night - but at least we got to see some rare NSW Blues supporter’s smiles, including Adoring Husband’s!

Now I need some sleep to make up for the lack of it last night.

Nite all.
