Does anyone have the time?

Time keeps on slippin', slippin', slippin'into the future......
Cheyenne & I were talking about time and he was reminding me what an amazing commodity it is. As I work & own a house, the majority of my time is connected to responsibility and the minority of my time is spent on play (though oddly I don’t think of it that way). It’s prompted me to look at my time and how I choose to spend it.

I’m always espousing the virtues of balance and how important that is to me. However upon closer inspection, I’m only examining my ‘after work’ hours and those lack some serious spontaneity! So as I enter the last week of my 45th year on the planet, it will be interesting to see if I can hold this thought and act accordingly. Time will tell……..

Um...sharon, I slept in and looks like I am running late again, and may not make it to work on TIME!

Now you have well and truly dropped me in the doodah - I've told everyone my "baby" is 35 - you've just killed the image I'm trying to build up - what will Colin's Dad think now you've let slip I have an almost 46-year-old daughter????

Some mothers do 'ave 'em.

cammar said...

He will think they you almost the same age, since Colin is not a teenager either...

cammar said...

Nice photo, by the way... you took it?
It doesn't show any age trembling at all!

Sharon said...

Hey Mrs B.....way to hussle and be on time today :-)

Mater-I think we need to distract with a new option. I think between Nancy, GP & me we can send you a few chaps to look over!

Cammar-ya cheeky bastard-you know full well you took this picture!

Children, children, children let's not argue over who shot the shot.

Besides which, it's 9.30p.m. and time all little ones (and big ones) should be tucked up in bed.

Sharon said...

Talking of bedtime it’s 9:37pm & hmmmmmmmmmmm I’m tucked in my brand new virgin birthday bed.

Jo & Roge, thanks so much for my first 'opened' birthday card. We all have a little blog community and you are like the nice thoughtful neighbors down the road! I'll drop some cake off for the @*! Italian at #46.....!

Your MOTHER wants to know if you slept alone in your virginal bed?

Do you like firm or soft? Mattress that is...........

meesh said...

nice mater - hard to top that one!

Ely said...

Ok, Sharon, it's time to post another blog entry!
Hey Mater, the firmness of Sharon's mattress is none of your business!
There are some things mothers shouldn't know about, and I think you're crossing the line here!

mater70 said...

Ely, this mother is on a "need to know" basis and that is a mother's prerogative. If I should ever get over to Maui again I shall be having a siesta on that particular mattress so Knowledge is important.
That's my story and I'm sticking to it.
Beware, I may have questions re. the condition of your mattress then you can tell me to go away and procreate.

Ely from NYC said...

Hey Mater,

Mattresses, or whatever funny word you call them in the U.K., are for sleeping and keeping cookie crumbs off the floor, not for procreation--that's what the kitchen countertop is for (at least here in New York, look it up). I don't want to hear anymore about your mattress fetish.

cammar said...

excellent...
don't stop, you guys...

mater70 said...

I am now totally fascinated by your kitchen worktop and your various uses! Personally I use my chef's knife on mine - lucky you live so far away - I might be the UK's answer to Mrs Bobbitt!!

Ely from NYC said...

Ugh!!! You really got me below the belt on that one! Now I really think it's time Sharon posted something else here. And Lorena, or whatever your name is, I hope your feeling of misandry hasn't been passed down to Sharon. I'll be in Maui in a few weeks and I'll be very, very afraid if I see a kitchen knife in your daughter's hands and me in the same room.

mater70 said...

So sorry Ely, Sharon trained at catering college and therefore has a whole range of chef's knives.

That will teach you to be cocky with her mother - go for him girl:-)
