I cannot believe that I am now 59.
In my heart I am sixteen but physically, sometimes, I feel about 90!
I would have loved to have had the energy to go to the theatre for my birthday but I know that I wouldn't feel like turning out ready for a 7.30pm performance. We had thought about going to the matinee last Thursday afternoon but the weather was very "iffy" and, as we had already had snow which had cut us off for a couple of days, we decided against it. Midnight Tango was what I would have liked to have seen.
I know my limitations, so have been very content with a cooked breakfast which my husband made for us this morning. It was a real treat and made a change from porridge!
A bit later we braced ourselves against the elements and my husband drove 20 miles to a sandy beach so that our 2 dogs could have a good old run. They love it there but today the weather was EVIL....bitterly cold and windy and sand blowing into every orifice!
I staggered along with my stick like a real old lady. Having fractured my left wrist falling on very soft sand there, 3 weeks ago, I wasn't going to take any chances.
At the moment a lovely blackbird is singing beautifully in our garden. It is really gorgeous and very uplifting. He is there every evening now between about 5.00pm and 6.00pm.
I love the birds and feed them every day.
Yesterday, though, I fell over once again as I slipped on what has become a bit of a mud slide and landed on my bum very daintily (NOT!)..but apart from my pride no damage was done! I have enough fat in that region to cushion the fall....lol...
We are now waiting for an Indian Takeaway to be delivered. My husband would have gladly taken me out for a meal but I just don't ever have the energy these days. It seems so feeble at my age, especially as I know older people who have so much more energy than me and do all sorts of adventurous things! They also have more money, too, of course, which certainly helps!!!
Ian bought me a lovely birthday cake in M&S which I am looking forward to eating if there is any room after I've eaten the Indian.
Then it'll probably be an early night as usual!
That's all for now. I love reading all your posts every day. I don't always have the energy to reply to everybody but I do what I can when I can.
Have a good evening everyone.
Love and hugs Saskia XX
