The reason I love to blog is because I love putting my thoughts on paper. Nowadays, the scourge of absentmindedness has left me a bit verbally vague, so I write things down instead. I like to laugh at my mishaps. Is that not what dottery old mothers (and grans) are all about?
Although this site looks like an interesting concept, unfortunately there has been a change of ownership and business is on hold, until the website has been redeveloped. I will let you know when it is up and running again
Yes it's true, I've caught a bug. The Ebay bug. (I'm a bit of a late developer!)
It is such a delightful pastime. I can't explain the feelings of excitment I get, waiting for the post to arrive with my latest parcel. I only spend a few pounds at a time, on craft supplies, so it's not a major drain on my finances. But is that how it starts? What will I be looking to purchase next? Surely not that classic, racing green, S-type jag, I've always had an notion for? I wish!!
One humugous downside to trolling Ebay, it is soo... time consuming. I can't get on with anything else for scrolling through pages upon pages of bargains!
I keep misplacing something, well quite a number of things really.
Up till recently, I've lived my life in my usual scatterbrained fashion and when I say scatterbrained I don't mean slightly airy fairy, I'm talking about the dim witted and bemused variety of muddled brain function, particular to a woman of my age.
If it wasn't for the handy little thesaurus and synonyms function on this computer, you wouldn't get a coherent word from me.
No, writing isn't much of a problem, (but obviously, I'll let you be the judge of that!) my major headache is the skill of holding a normal, everyday conversation. My attempts consist of lots of broken sentences and phrases and plenty of blank stares as I rake my empty brain for that missing word.
Forgetting words is a particular talent of mine, unusual in a writer, don't you think? My family used to finish my sentences for me, but now even they are struggling. Have they lost the skill or have I just got worse?
They say life begins at 40 but it's taken me 10 years to embrace that notion. Now at 50 I'm feeling good and some still say looking good. Well that's when I can be bothered to indulge in my newly rediscovered interest, applying a little makeup from time to time. To be honest time would be better spent just keeping my stray eyebrow hairs under control. As you can see I've a plethora of interests, at present I'm finding it pretty stressful trying to fit them all into one day. You know that saying,"there's never enough hours in the day"?,I now understand what it means. I probably knew this years ago, but by letting lower priority tasks slip(housework),I found time to concentrate the necessities in life(socialising). Anyway about me, I live with my husband and my 2 adult male, children, (adult/children, a contradiction in terms? Not in our house.).
