Fun Monday = Selfie

This week we are saying a little about ourselves but I feel less comfortable doing this as we seem to have less control over the things we post. It wasn't something I gave much thought to back in 2006 when I first started my blog. One did not have to endure all the endless advertising back then; however I wasn't intending to turn this into a to continue with the task in hand.....

Some of you may remember I started my blog as a diary when I retired back around the beginning of Oct 2006 is it really over 7 years ago, my how time flies!!
So as a recap I'm still married to Embee, I lost my mum who lived with us just over 2yrs ago and I still have my 3 tortoises. My daughters, continue to live in Ireland and the US. My grandchildren are growing up, eldest turned 21 couple of months back and my grandaughter will be 18 in a couple of weeks. Youngest grandson is now a teenager and is taller than me, well that's because I've shrunk a lot in past couple of years!!!! I haven't been able to do much travelling recently as house needed a lot of work and we're slowly clearing out all the rubbish that has accumulated over the 28yrs we have lived here. Needs must that we downsize while we are still able!

I'm less keen to post a selfie pic as I cannot believe how saggy and wrinkly I have become; I look in the mirror and wonder who the old lady is (just like the poem)!!!!! However I suppose I must follow the rules.........

I realise I'm very late getting this posted, but my daughter was staying and although I started the post in time it never got finished!

Thank you for the update, ChrisB! I was hoping some of the old bloggers would come out of the woodwork. I miss blogging, but things seem to be so busy these days, my blogging is always hit or miss. I figured that Fun Monday would at least get me on there once a week!

By the way, you look wonderful!

Sayre I have every good intention to keep blogging if you could see the number of drafts that I start but never finish!!! Will try and keep up with FM, but no promises!
