Feeling Fabulous at Fifty!

Fabulous

Today is the day I turn fifty

And I am not going to get all depressed

There are plenty of things to look forward to

And these are the ones I like best!

You are handy to have in a pub quiz

You know all the old movies and songs

Your trivia knowledge is awesome

Because you’ve been around for so long!

You are allowed to be quite eccentric

Nobody minds if you’re odd

They just think you are a bit quirky

Or perhaps just a silly old sod!

You don’t have to always look glamorous

Because nobody looks anymore

You don’t have to spend hours getting ready

Before you can step out the door.

So although I’ve reach that half century

I’ve see no need to be sad

For I still feel life is for living

And there’s lots more fun to be had!

TJ’s Weekly Household Haiku Challenge – Calendar

Calendar

Today we have got ‘calendar’ by TJ for his weekly household haiku challenge prompt word. Mine is hanging up on a kitchen cupboard and as my memory is bad, I try to write down appointments and birthdays and stuff – that is if I can remember them in the first place!

Anyway, here are my takes on it this week:

Measurement of life:

happy days celebrated

Sad days reminisced

***

Anticipation

A Milestone is approaching

The dreaded five-o!
