Time passes so quickly

Time whizzes past doesn't it? I've just had another birthday and it seems such a short time since I posted about my last one. It feels a bit like the downhill run now. Sometimes I feel like my life is like a telescope - not in the viewing but in the collapsing of the instrument. Telescopes are not something that normally grab my attention - although I saw a 'dead' one on the side of the street a couple of weeks ago, sans lens etc. It was quite sad.

Anyhoo, I've just celebrated another birthday that, auspiciously, fell on Mothers Day. We invited close family and had a lovely BBQ here under the vines. The Mothers toasted with Veuve Cliquot

Here we are! Between us we have 13 children. Not many when I think that Roland's grandmother had 11 or 12! Anyhoo, that's what we've got and the ages of our children range from 20months to 44 years old. In the photo: my sister, my daughter, my niece, two sisters-in-law and my niece-in-law (and me in - the polka dot top - bossing everybody around just for a change).

On the Yoga front, I'm working on starting an Over 55s class here in Falcon. I'm looking for a venue and wondering about how many people will come along. It is one of my personal new year resolutions to start this class.

Happy (belated) birthday!

Thanks Dr Jay! I'm approaching another big one in a couple of years. That will be cause for celebration - I just have to buckle down and get on with it.
