Ahh there was a time when burning the candle at both ends was my middle name !!! Parties and Nights out, clubbing and drinking. Then up to work, workouts at lunchtime, quick nap after work and right back out again !!!
Well I am here totally admitting that now I’m not even mixing my drinks. I have one night out a few lovely Bollies and good dance, up next day to boat show, day off on Monday when I assisted with the errection how very daring (putting up of) – my little Gazebo and I cooked a roast dinner for my mum and Simon (oh I did have some red wine too).
Today I am not even feeling awake at 9.15 – I feel groggy and like I could rest the rest of 10 hibernating bears in a Forrest wrapped up with leaves and stuff (no hang on there may be bugs eeeeuuuuuu)… no, I could sleep the sleep of Sleeping Beauty and risk the pin prick won’t be too painful !! Yes that kind of peaceful sleep – being awoken gently by a handsome prince ? Nahhhhhhh Just get on with life and know that energy will be restored and I would do it all again because the fun element of the whole thing was well worth it.
I have things to do and a puppy to walk. One of the things is to go and put bedding plants in my mums garden !!! (just a few Cosmos she said) I bet when I get there she’s been to the Garden Centre and I will have to become the Charlie Dimmock of Ince Crescent and chuck my bra out and get too it. I do love a bit of Ground Force :) – these days my choice of TV would include Gardening and Cookery programmes !!! oh how we morph into new people. Liv my daughter asked me at what time of life do you actually take an interest in which bird is singing … I thought about this and realised that I have always been interested in Bird Song. I remember sketching birds endlessly as a child. I am a nature lover, so who drag myself away from it.
I wonder if Blondie ever put bedding plants in or Gerry Hall ? what have they missed out on ?
So let’s look at the positives here, I did have a great weekend and it was fab to be out dancing and sipping a lovely champers with good people. The Boat show was brilliant and gave me ideas for my next boat !!!!!
Having the ability to cook meals, walk about, train a puppy, shop, eat, drink, drive a car, etc etc etc… these are all a blessing for me.
I am living
I am alive
My Now is happening over and over again and I am rolling with a fast pace of life (well fast enough for me)
It is all good here. I will get some lemon water and Apple cider vinegar down me and alkalise my system. I will enjoy the birdsong and the freedom I have, I will just let it all BE …….
A few decent coffee’s will help and all will be restored.
Speak those Beatles words of wisdom…. “Let it Be”
So I will keep the Rock and Roll to every now and again because I know it really knocks the stuffing out of me and I need my stuffing.
Enjoy your day today and have a little dance – Dance inside, dance with your thoughts. Be a dancer.
Here’s to Rock and Roll (Middle age style anyway)
Lots of love
