The weather may have lightened up a bit on us down here today but what I’m hearing from the rest of the land is that it’s quite cold. The weather people are also skeptical about the country seeing much sun over the weekend, which is why I’ve put together a checklist of things to do indoors this weekend. I’ll be ticking every single item off.

You may or may not know that I’ve had a troubled relationship life or the lack thereof was quite troubling, mainly to my mother. Then I met a man a few months ago (it’s been 10 months and a bit) who has been a wonderful, lovely gift. I remember when we first started our relationship (people of a certain age* shouldn’t use the the term “dating”, right?) and I was telling him about an embarrassing time I had one term in high school and his response was “I wish I knew you then.”

There are a lot of euphemisms used to refer to old people. I’m old, I’ve lived quite a number of years and I’m proud of that. Of all the (sometimes ridiculous) euphemisms used to reference old people my favourite is “women of a certain age.” I like that one. That’s where this post’s title comes from. Today I’m bringing you some tips to help you sleep better when you’re a “certain age.”

I remember the first time I felt outdone by another woman in my significant other’s life; I was 19 and my first real boyfriend’s friend from high school was the one who managed to convince him to take a course I’d been recommending to him for months. I admit that the hurt was childish and was a bit of an overreaction but it will always go down as the first cut. This last weekend the boyfriend and I had a brunch date and when I went to drag him out of his bed I found that his helper was more organised than I am — she has already put away the summer bedding in favour of cosier bits.

I remember a time in my life when I was quite happy — read ecstatic — if I found one of the children sleeping. When they were toddlers the motto really was to let them drop when they will and hope for the best. My daughter was especially stubborn because each time we tried to move her to her bed she’d wake up, so nap time was never really structured with her.

I know it’s been so long since I last wrote here (March/April is always crazy with the public holidays!) But thankfully I have good news to report: as of Monday ( a public holiday) I have been a 9AM – 3PM girl! I have just scored myself a job with a local lifestyle boutique and my willingness to start on a public holiday was part of the test — these are grown up things, folks.

I’m always interested in learning what other people do in order to feel happier and to be happier. The short term things that improve your mood like exercise or lift your spirits like a simple act of kindness does.Today’s post is a combination of my favourite mood-boosting past times and that of many of my closest friends. After all, sharing is caring.

Ever since we first got married hubby has always insisted that I take a “day off” at least once a month. A me-time kind of day where I get out of the house, go to brunch or the spa, go to the movies — without worrying about him, the kids or anything else. And bring back a bag full of glossy magazines and nail polish. Often times my day off coincided with a big sporting event for which I’m always grateful because I realised within the first few months of dating my wonderful man that I could never cope with his sports thing…

You lot (and my mother) will be please to know that my bed and I slowly getting back to out old tight-knit relationship. This week in particular has been one of the best this year as far as that relationship is concerned. My spur of the moment decision to join my friend’s 5am bootcamp classes these last few days has had me up at the crack of dawn and my body so spent by the the time night came I’d often be out for nine – ten hours.
