Number One

Oops, that was rather quick. Was just thinking of starting a blog and now, just a few seconds later, I've got one.
So now I actually have to start thinking about what I'm going to write here. Some ideas were floating around my head for a while...
Am I the only woman who seems to be experiencing a Mid-Life Crisis??? Everybody is talking about men going out buying a red sports car and a young blond woman. But not much about woman? Are we all happy to get old? Not that I would want to go back to being 20, not even 30. I quite like my life now and back then it wasn't all too great. But I'm very much aware of the fact that "my" time is running shorter and shorter. I am now 43 years old. Married with two children, living in a small town somewhere in Ireland. Not rich, not poor just average.
In the past year or so I noticed it is getting harder and harder to watch gravity taking over some (ok- most) of my body parts. The face is slowly changing and the much dreaded wrinkles around the lips are appearing. Not very visible yet but I know they are there.
A strange sense of that time is running out is taking over. I know- people are saying that 40 is the new 30 and 50 is the new 40 and so on. And yes, times have changed. Our generation seems much younger than the one of our parents. Life has changed especially for women. Many women my age have teenage daughters and dress nearly the same. There was no way way I would have worn anything out of my mothers wardrobe.
Myself and most of my girlfriends are very active women. We are working, having families and having fun. But I can't get rid of the feeling that all will be over in the not too far away future. Nature will put a stop to my current lifestyle whether I want to or not...
So what is this Blog going to be about? Not all winging and moaning I hope!
