Growing old disgracefully

My oldest childhood friend is about to turn 50 and realising I have elderly friends has made me think about what I’m going to do with the rest of my life. Middle age can be about making time for personal growth and wondering what sort of human you want to become in the second half of your life. Once my kids have moved out of home, I want to inspire people, live well and have fun, so when I grow up, hopefully I’ll still be young enough to:

Care about my fellow humans like Sam Newman
Be open-hearted like Prune Macsween
Dance like Peter Garrett

Have the compassion of Miranda (Not Really) Devine
Pop pills like Ben Cousins
Manage my hair like Donald Trump

Tolerate people like Peter Dutton

Possess the humility of Malcolm Turnbull

Be open-minded like Andrew Blot

Be submissive like Eddie Maguire

Be as sexy as Bronwyn Bishop

What’s on your life goals bucket list?

The gift that keeps on giving

I love it when I find a lovely Christmas gift tucked away and forgotten in a cupboard. Today I dug out Dan and Dave’s 2016 Xmas chutney (made from Granny’s top secret family recipe) and it went perfectly with what I was eating. Beer and chutney are a winning combination aren’t they gastronomes?

In the words of my favourite chef, Cookie Monster, “Me so full, but me can always eat one more.” I can’t wait to get stuck into my advent calendar tomorrow.
