So, this is it. I’m trying my hand at blogging. It might be a complete disaster in which case I’ll just close this all down and keep my thoughts to myself. It might, on the other hand, be a good laugh and I might make a few people smile along the way. That’s my only aim.
So a bit about myself. Not too much because that would be boring! I’m fifty-something, married with a pink one and a blue one and live somewhere over the Severn Bridge, or Prince of Wales bridge or whatever it is called now. I work full time for my sins, in a job that tests me to my limits! My children are pretty much self-sufficient now so me and hubby are rediscovering “Going out”.
Life is busy, but life is good. I just plod on being mum, wife, sister, auntie, daughter, colleague and friend to those who know me. I’m 2 kids stronger than I was 20 years ago and will happily speak my mind now saying things I wouldn’t have dreamt off years ago! I hold no airs and graces, I’m a very low maintenance wife whose only treat is getting my eyebrows threaded occasionally and trying to disguise my ever-expanding grey hairs which are beautifully disguised by your recent T-section one day and glaringly obvious the next! I don’t ask for much in life but would love a little lottery win to make life easier!
My hubby works hard and moans hard but I still love him, even after 30 years together! My children are growing up and busy working/being educated and socialising and I can’t remember the last time that we were all together for Sunday dinner but I guess that is what happens as we all get older. Sad times. I miss the times when they were small, cute and adorable…..I’ll just wait for the grandkids.
I have 2 cats. I adore the feline variety. I’m not a dog person, I’m too lazy! We’ve had the usual menagerie of pets as the kids have grown up. Cats – numerous, rabbits – two, goldfish – many, stick insects – don’t know h0w many as I could never tell the difference between them and their surroundings and hamsters – two but one ate the other one! I think that’s it but then my memory is atrocious so may have missed one! I think I like animals more than humans as animals are no where near as cruel as humans can be!
Anyway, that’s enough for now. Hopefully I’ll remember some more about myself to share with you but in the meantime, Happy Sunday x
