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!!

My Weekend Has Ended

It's 4.37pm and I am still in bed, having worked all day on various things.

  • Partially written our first newsletter
  • Edited some of our website and watched some tutorials on the inner workings of it.
  • Did a little research on creating my online course.
  • Selected a date for a one day photography workshop.
  • Read some more of one of The Gypsy's books.
  • Started to write a description of the damaging rain events in our shop - to hopefully get things moving with our repairs.
  • Had a mini nap
  • Edited a couple of photos.
  • Writing my blog post for the day.
I have thoroughly enjoyed the day, however, I didn't get any washing done ... oopsy!

It's been warm enough today that I've had the pedestal fan on since lunch time, but thankfully, Higgins Storm Chasers have advised that the weather will be taking it's second stint at trying to be Winter this weekend!

I'm excited.

It's time to climb out of bed to cook dinner - think I'll make a chicken curry.

Might throw a load of washing in the machine first.

I'm looking forward to being in The Happy Abode again tomorrow. Even though I enjoy my days off, I actually miss being in our shop.

Have a fabulous Friday!

Nite all.
