My daughter, her husband, three of their children and their two grandchildren are all sharing a holiday in Dunsborough for a few days and good luck to them. I've not heard from them but judging by posts on Facebook I think they are having a wonderful time and they all deserve to do just that.

I am feeling sad 'cos I think me and my OH are now too old to share in these types of family events. He and I used to take our three eldest granddaughters on holidays to
Dunsborough, Busselton and Albany and we had a wonderful time and if you talk about it to them they too remember nothing but good times. On the last occasion when we went to Busselton our oldest grandson and a friend of our oldest granddaughter also joined us.

I in no way begrudge them all getting together but it would be so wonderful to be sharing the pleasure with them. I guess a time comes in one's life when you have to let things like that go out of your life and instead enjoy what is left to enjoy.

I am with them in spirit and enjoying......well, just remembering.


  1. Aren't you glad that you had those holidays back when you were younger and more able-bodied. What nice memories to reflect back on, just like the ones I am now forming with my kids and grandchildren.

  2. I still can't help feeling sad that we are considered 'past it' in possibly more ways than one.
