- I'm 57 years old, working full time, wife, mother and grand mother, wishing that I wasn't working full time! I love and enjoy our children and grandchildren, our dogs and cat, our garden and allotment. I love crafts - knitting, sewing, crocheting, patchwork and restoring old furniture. I love to go to country auctions and love thinking that I've got my self a bargain!

Old age = second childhood!
Hasn't it been so nice to see the sun shinning for the last couple of days - I have even managed to put washing out in the garden to dry.
One of the down sides of having an issue with your my immune system is that I have suffered a number of lesions on my legs, which were nasty and weeping but have now dried up and scabbed over - it's just like when you was a child and had fell over in the playground and you ended up with a grazed knee - that's just what they look like now!
They keep itching so they are obviously getting better but each time I do scratch - I can hear my Mom saying (like she used to when I was little)
"Your leg will drop off if you pick at that scab"
I used to think no it won't........will it?
I think I said the same thing to my own 3 children too!
Anyway to make me feel a little better I've been had had my roots done and my hair cut and then I tootled off to Boots and treated myself to some new No 7 make-up - something I haven't done in a long, long time. Then I went onto M & S and brought myself 2 new tops ready for our holidays (11 weeks on Saturday - not that I'm counting!)
I had a Kindle Fire last weekend with some of my Christmas money and have got to say how pleased I am with it - it downloads a book so fast it's brilliant.
But why oh why do I keep calling it my Pringle and not Kindle?!
I really must be hitting old age and my second childhood - can't get my words out right!!
I then went up to the hospital to go in for yet another blood test (this will be my 5th in less than a couple of weeks) and couldn't get onto the car park, there were so many cars on there - so I gave up and will go again tomorrow.
Well - hope that you got to see some of the sunshine today - Roll on Spring
