Here it be. The day of reckoning. The time has come where age overtakes you and hurtles you into the next year of your life.......bugger. Must I remember to add an extra number to my age, sighs.
Of course, I could lie and say I’m 21...again, he he. Well, I am pleasantly preserved, no grey hairs (yet), can still say that my hair is me own, especially now that I’ve paid the loan off. And still has that twinkle in me eye (darn that sunshine). Oh, ok then, who am I kidding.......I’m 22 then, ahem. (Whistles loudly as he moves off at a rapid pace).
Got a card from those in the office, cheeky burgers. I think they is suggesting that I’m a fatteh!!! (I’m not – trust me on this).
Well, time to take stock and think what to do next in my life – declare amnesia me thinks!!
Seriously though, I need to maintain my jogging activities. Once a month seems good enough don’t you think??? .......What!! No?? You trying to kill me off??? Oh darn (deep sigh) oh well, I suppose I’d better do more than that.
Had a good weekend. Together with my six year old daughter, we went to visit my sister, who lives in Mid Devon, in a village called Witheridge. This is the village I grew up in (and will blog about this village including pictures another day). Had a great time seeing sis, her partner Rob, and my niece and nephew (Belinda and Ashley, both teens). I really should get into the habit of taking my camera around with me (Sorry Luba, its only a poxy one). Still it makes the blog less bring to look at (oi, wake up there).
Wow – when he had the runs, boy, he wasn’t kidding!!
