BEEN AND GONE ....and life continues on!!

Well my birthday has been and gone. Seems like there is this build up to these kinds of events and then before you know it they are over. You know what I mean.....when it's getting near to Christmas, everyone is busy preparing for the day and then all of a sudden it's gone. Father Christmas comes and before you know it, we are celebrating New Year's and then on into the year ahead.

So now I am 50....the big FIVE OH !! Not such a big deal really. Actually I don't feel any different at all and I knew that I wouldn't. My youngest child....Miss 17......has given me quite a hard time. She has ribbed and ribbed me about how old I am going to be, and how old I now am. She has constantly been saying a whole lot of sentences to me with the word OLD in it. Oh well, I'm sure that will phase out once she gets sick of saying it to me. Actually one of my children said , when an advert came on the television for insurance......"Oh, well now you can get insurance with APIA." APIA for those who don't know is an insurance company that insures people that are 50 and over who don't work full-time....and it's much cheaper insurance. I am quite happy that I now fall into that category :-))

I went to see the musical WICKED in Melbourne with my twin sister and LOVED IT!! It was one of the most awesome things I have ever seen. The costumes and lighting were truly spectacular. Actually the whole show was absolutely spectacular. If anyone is thinking of going to see the show.......GO, you will love it.

I was going to post some photos of my trip on here today, but unfortunately my laptop is away getting repaired at the moment :-(( - sad to say......and I am using a public library to write this post. Hopefully I will have it back ASAP...but then you never know how long these things can take. Actually I feel quite lost without my own computer. Still feel lucky to at least have access to modern technology in the meantime.

Will put photos on my next post.

Sounds like you had a great time! Lots of my best people are doing '50' this year. You, my Bradley, and even the patchwork apple Jane - so it must be great! (Trendy even! Tell Miss 17 to get with the trend!)
