And all of a sudden you are almost there.....

Approaching 40, I thought I needed to do something to change my life, procrastination is a B*****d. Here I am almost 50, thinking the same.    I didn't want to be like this at 40, and I didn't want to be like this at 50.   Am I happy?   Yes I am happy, I have a beautiful family, and some cracking friends.  But I am sad I haven't made the changes I have been promising to do for the past 10 years.  Yes 10 years, where the hell did they go.   Well, there is something I am sure of, and that is that I will not be worrying over it for the next 10 years, life is surely too short.   So as I approach another landmark birthday, I make a promise to myself not to keep putting off the small things I can do, which accumulate into a mountain over time.  And that I will make more time for myself, having spent the past 17 years putting the kids needs and wants before mine.   As they make their own way in the world, I must let them fly, empty nest syndrome? Who knows.  But know seems a good a time as any to find the me, that has been lost along the way.

50 Take Two

On my fast approach to the BIG 50  here is the second giveaway as promised.

50 Random Chipboards items.    I have an obsession with chipboards and could probably fill a bag with 5 times this amount LOL.   So if you love chipboard as much as I do, leave a comment below, and I will use random generator to chose someone at random to receive this little ensemble.

What a lovely week we are having, I had so many good intentions to do some serious spring cleaning, but all gone by the wayside.  Who wants to do cleaning while the sun it out, not me for sure.

Thoughts are taking me to the holidays, and what I can do with 2 teenagers for 6 weeks.  Any suggestions gratefully recieved.  One boy, one Girl, who rarely want to do the same things.  One is a daredevil, the other just wants to spend money LOL.  So do I risk my life doing some hair brain activity, or risk my life savings on spending.  Mmm difficult one eh?  I sit and ponder.

Only four weeks now to my official birthday, like the queen I like to celebrate in many ways over many days, over the year even.   Looking forward to meeting up with friends, visiting some new places, and learning some new things.

Things I am not looking forward to, are the many horrible jobs I have to complete, like a visit to the dump with the rotting vegetation from the garden.  Nice thought eh?  Might be easier to get a composting bin.

Oh well, I leave you lovelies for now, please leave a comment below if you would like to be in the draw for the chipboards.
