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!!

Friday Frenzy

It was a crazy busy morning in The Happy Abode, but after 12.30pm, not a single solitary soul came through the doors.

I picked up the Cenzoni order from the Post Office and within five minutes of putting the first backpack on display, it was sold! It was my favourite - exactly the same as the one I use as my regular bag except this one was a 'smoke' colour.

Here is a selection of the Cenzoni bags that arrived today.

Tomorrow is market day and I really want to check the markets out before I open the shop in the morning, so I should get to sleep.

Apparently, it's going to be icy cold in the morning. For all of you southerners, icy cold in our town is 6C. Yes I know that it's -6C down south. Winter is perfect up here in Queensland. I just wish it lasted longer than a couple of weeks.

Have a wonderful weekend!

Nite all.
