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!!

Hellova Hump Day

Today was busy and went oh so fast!

I chose to stay back for two hours to finish unpacking yesterday's delivery.

I've checked everything off the invoice, priced it all and displayed some of it, but not all.

Some stock was sold as it came out of the box!

It was nice having The Gypsy at work to chat with between customers and unpacking.

There should be more deliveries this week, so I need to be on the ball and pace myself to get it all done without overdoing it or getting stressed.

It's important to remind myself that this is the fun part and I don't have to have it all done in a time frame. I'm the boss and there is nobody riding my butt to get it done quickly - just enjoy the process.

Like Romy and Michelle in that fabulous movie, I thoroughly enjoyed folding scarves today!

So many beautiful scarves came out of the box and I can tell that they will be walking out the door quickly.

Right now, it's State of Origin time, so I'm going to watch my team defeat the Blues ... hopefully ... maybe ... gawd.

Nite all.
