I starting to reluctantly accept the concept of getting old.
I think this is sad.
I didn't really spend much time thinking about this actually happening to me.
I planned hobbies for when I got older...I have all the kits for cross stitch, long stitch,wool for knitting, pencils and sketch books......and crossword books stockpiled. I bought all this when I was working.
That is a long way off......I still have plenty of time to do all these things....BUT HAVE I?????
I will be 70 in July and I find I'm starting to share arthritis stories with Mum who is 95......
I do a bit of housework, and I'm looking forward to sitting down and playing Yahtzee with Mum while we have lunch....I need the break.
I still enjoy sewing Mum's knitted squares together.....But my hands do hurt a bit.
I find shopping malls TOO noisy and crowded......and I'm a shopaholic!!!
When I cross stitch I need magnifying glasses over my prescription glasses
I'm happy to get older....
Have a good week, everybody
