Over 40 !!!!!!!!!!!!

Heck I am soon to be over fifty . While I was checking on regulat blogs and updating my site I found this blog nevergrowingold and having had  a facebook chat with my cousin who is over 50 I thoughy MM lets take a peak.
Never Growing Old
Whilst I am not Bhudist I do like the saying.
So I am adding this to my to follow list . I wont stop by every day but I will visit every now and again. As I do the other blogs I follow.

I have just read some interesting contriutions from other over 40's

Now as I sit and think about  my baby who turned 20 yesterday I am reminded of what I was doing when I was 20 . I was a nanny in Worcester having just returned from nannying in Spokane.
Now I have two of my children married one engaged and one at home.
What next I wonder?
Will I be blessed to be a grandmother , then that causes me a problem I am 48 and do not feel old enough to be called grandma,granny, nanny, nana . I would like a fun young name heck I am not even expecting a grandchild yet but ever since my Dad was  christened beauty grandad by his Grandchildren I have wanted a cool name like him.
Well no need to think about it yet I am sure when the time comes it will all become clear.

Now that my children are out of their teen years I would love to go on a world adventure , there are so many amazing places in this world and I would love to see them.
Lets see where would I go

  • Spokane
  • Florida
  •  Taj Mahal
  •  Pyramids
  •  A desert
  •  Rain forest
  • Niagra falls
  • Grand canyon
  • sydney opera house
  • Ireland
  • China
  • Malaysia
Ok these ae just names of things/places but they have within them the same struggles as we have here to a lesser or greater degree  . Realistically I will not see many of these on my wish list but if I just sit back and think right this is my lot I will end up ageing quicly and become a boring person . I have no intention of doing that and so have started ( thanks Steph & Alfie) my piggy bank saving I know I will visit Spokane again and hopefully Florida and the rest well the research will be good.
 I will leave my forties kicking and screaming and hopefully arrive in my fifties graciously ready for the challenges and adventures ahead of me.

Being over 50 is no sweat! Just keep doing what you are already doing and grab every good opportunity life throws your way. (Plus, make a few of your own!)

I liked thinking a bit about where I would want to visit, too. I have never been out of the United States. As for eventually becoming a grandma, my guess is that when it happens you may not even care what you are called, because the present of having a grandchild will definitely out-weight the idea of being older. Just my 2 cents... :)
