So – what I really want to do is to carry on crocheting, I have a new lacy triangle scarf pattern and have already made and sold one and now I need to make another to wear myself. Blogging needs to be done however, as I am getting back into the old habit of putting it off far too long again. I have a way to go to beat the late Douglas Adams when it come to procrastination, as apparently his book ‘So Long and Thanks for all the Fish’ was 12 years late.
As usual much is happening and nothing is happening. What I mean is, my life is packed full of things to do but for the most part they are all pretty usual. It is all heightened however because of the HRT I started taking about six weeks ago and which has given me my life back – this is not an exaggeration. I no longer live in quiet desperation (sometimes not so quiet admittedly) and am still amazed that I can wake up every day and feel ‘normal’. My 50th birthday is rushing at me like an over enthusiastic labrador and my daily dose of hormone is the bestest birthday present EVER. HOORAH!! WITH NOBS ON!!
I am off to Rome with friends on the 21st September for 4 days and then the following weekend will be my birthday party and then a week at Three Cliffs Bay on the Gower Peninsular with Mr T and Toastie the Dog. On my actual birthday we will be going out to dinner in Swansea with lovely friends Julian and Kath. All absolutely fabulous and wonderful.
I am looking forward to being fifty. I am just so impressed and extremely thankful that I have made it this far – half a century! There is no way I would go back to being young now without being able to take my old self with me.. Fancy having all the youth, stamina, beautiful skin, body – all that newness and all that time ahead of you.. and not being able to appreciate it.
A few photos..
Gratuitous Toastie photo.
How I’m feeling and how I hope you are feeling too…
