It has been 3 years since I started this blog.
Never imagined I would stick with it for this long.
Yet again, time seems to have whizzed by at supersonic speed.
So many years have flown by.......
I am no longer 17, or 27 or 47 or 57.
I no longer wear size 10 clothes.
I am no longer thin, with a flat stomach and slim ankles, and youthful skin.
My kids are adults.
My mister has grey hair.
We both wear reading glasses and make that slight grunty groany noise when we have to get up from kneeling down.
Dinner used to be eaten at 8 or 9 in the evening.....heaven forfend that we should do that now...the idea of Early bird dinner at 6pm seems downright sensible to us now.
The words pensions, mortgages, and retirement plans are peppering conversations with friends now.
On the plus side, I have found a hairstyle I like that suits me.
I do not give a fuck about some things.
I know who I am.
I hate some aspects of my personality but don't beat myself up over what I am not...not anymore.
I know who I love.
I am loved.
I still hate my job but have given myself a goal......I will retire in two years time......unless destiny steps in and changes that plan.
I look forward to my kids having kids.
When I catch sight of myself in the mirror I sometimes groan and think I look about 100.....and yet at other times I think I don't look too bad for an old gal.
Stumbling across the blogosphere 3 years ago was wonderful.
I love blogging.......reading and commenting and interacting with people that I would never have met in non-blogging land.
I am really happy to have 'met' via t'interweb some really smashing people .......made friends.
Tapping away...wittering on.....I can't see me stopping just yet....just wish I could get time to slow down a little....
Thank you for reading.
Thank you for commenting.
For being out there.
