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!!

Like a Lizard

That's how flat out I was today ... like a lizard drinking!

Lots of people in town and each person that came in today said "People have been talking about this great little shop behind Elders!" and they all gasped and admired our beautiful Happy Abode.

So many of them also said "Your prices are so low!" and then they proceeded to buy birthday and ... wait for it ... Christmas presents!

One man suggested that we put a flashing light out the front to attract attention, so now I am researching solar powered flashing lights - NOT a red one! What a great idea!

Both of our caravan parks are full at the moment and some people have attempted to extend their stay, but their site is booked out for weeks in advance, so they have to leave.

It's pretty amazing how steady the stream of people has been and all of them are incredibly friendly and warm and happy and chatty.

As tiring as it's been, I've really enjoyed this week and I can't wait for the remaining deliveries to arrive. I'd really like some time to fluff around the shop and change some displays.

These are some of the scarves that have arrived this week, as well as some cushion covers ...

Just before I head to bed, I'd like to mention that I am missing Lady Lynn very much these holidays, but I hope she's having fun with her grandies and the fambam.

Nite all.
