Growing older shouldn’t be a chore should it?

11 Nov

In terms of the universe “growing” older is just the way of all things and shouldn’t be seen as something to be scared of, notice my use of the word growing there, rather than getting.

For those of us lucky enough to reach our golden years, well, we should as Frankie says, RELAX, that doesn’t mean sit on your bum all day and reek of old age, oh no. it means STOP worrying about all the things you thought important when you were 16, 20, 30, 40, and concentrate on what is important to you now.

As a woman growing my main concerns were my children obviously but I had silly worries like “what will people think” I would never be seen dead outside without my slap on, do I give a hoot now NO! I happen to think I am beautiful and I’m afraid the cosmetic counter no longer gets my hard-earned money “except for the odd lippy now and again” well you’ve got to, and whats a lippy between friends. Just because I’m grey with laughter lines, should I not feel sexy!

Housework was another worry of mine, I never felt there were enough hours in the day to get it all done when the children were small, I would run myself ragged tidying up all the time, the house had to be spotless for when any-one called, then my mum asked me one day, “what is more important, a tidy house or happy children?” well there was no contest the children came first and the housework was done twice a week and guess what “Pops in doors” does it now and I must say he does it well and enjoys it too.
