I woke up with really hot knees this morning and I thought, “Oh no!…not something else wrong”….then I realised my tits had dropped another 6 inches!!
Turning 30 was but a blip on my radar….didn’t notice it. Too busy getting married and working etc. 40…..same. Not getting married again but I didn’t feel any different and was very busy. Dealing with leaving my dream career after 15yrs and all the reasons that went with that and brought a shop at 40 and had lots going on…….Actually my 40’s was a blur!! But turning 50 this year….mentally????? I am pissed off!!! All of a sudden I am thinking…..”damn!! where did that time go?” I don’t feel any different mentally……I still think the same things are funny and the same issues still upset me but I have realised just lately that “young” people view me as elderly! Well, that sucks balls big time!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I don’t hold my grog like I used to. In fact, I hardly drink much at all these days. I pretend I am a wine soak…..but I’m not really 🙂 All of a sudden, or so it seems, I am sagging! I am getting really noticeable wrinkles on my face and more grey hairs. I feel a bit sad that finally I have lost some weight with the help of my band and feel the best I have in years, but the outside of me is going to the pack! Bummer……………………….. I love how the pillow marks on my face take until lunchtime to plump back out again. Or the mark where I have crossed my legs or had my leg pressed up against a desk or something just stays there……………. all day!! New veins have popped up all over the farking place!! Well, I suppose they have been there all along, but they are all clamouring to make an appearance now:)
But I’m happy most of the time and I guess that is what counts. No serious illness for me or my loved ones….so I am blessed really. I still say getting old sucks. I am a hell of lot wiser of course….. but nobody likes an old smartarse 🙂 I just love to laugh and make others laugh and as long as I’m able to do that then everything is OK in my little neck of the woods………or at least, that is what the voices are telling me 🙂
I work for the next four days. Ricky is at work now and doesn’t finish until 2am if he is lucky. We had an early Christmas catch-up with Ricky’s parents this week as they are going to Hobart for Christmas day. We did the last of our Christmas shopping while we were up the coast visiting them. My family and Ricky’s daughter and her partner and girls are coming to us for Christmas day and Boxing day. I guess everyone is busy leading up to the big day.
Harry Highpants has developed quite a nasty limp on his back left leg and we think he may have done some real damage. So, I am going to give him the weekend to see how he goes, but it is looking like a trip back up the coast to the vet early next week. I thought I had finished with the trips until after Christmas!! Oh well, you know I would sell my soul for my fur babies.
So, I will probably get another post in before the big day! I will let you know how Harry goes……… Stay safe and try and avoid those bloody awful hangovers!
