Two day gap but both days, just as I started a post, friends came. I do like to post every day because it aids the 'continuity of thought' in my brain - difficult to explain to anyone younger I think but if I miss a couple of days I tend to lose the thread and I have to do a bit of a search through my brain cells to find it again. But friends - actual human beings here in my bungalow and actually touchable - are so important and have to take precedence don't you agree? (although all of you are so important and keep me in touch with reality) so "Good morning bloggers and dear bloggy friends!"
Now what did I intend to post about? Well, first of all about Gwynneth Paltrow (or Gwynnie as theTimes calls her) who has reached fifty and wishes to be noticed in a really big way. So how does she go about it? She takes all her clothes off and covers herself in gold paint!! Well, in another 28 days I shall be ninety and when I get out of bed and look in the mirror I can say with certainty I shall look more or less the same as I did the previous day. Time marches on and how ever much I spend on creams, potions, beauty products, ready meals and sex aids , in spite of Gwynneth's advice nothing can really - in the real world -stop the march of time which always wins in the end. So my philosophy is to live one day at a time and just make the most of it. No pills and potions on earth make much difference. On the scales of life you (or me) sit on one side and fate/time/ call it what you will sits on the other and sooner or later you lose. So what do I intend to do on my 90th birthday? Not sure yet - depends how well/agile I feel but one thing is for sure - if I paint anything gold it will be my front door!
See you tomorrow dear friends.
