Sometimes I feel like I am twice my age. When I start to talk about the areas I grew up in, not lived in but frequented, alot of the younger generations say "What?" Yeah...like places we used to go to in Footscray, Yarraville, Newport, Williamstown...things my brother and I used to do like go shooting (you wold not see that these days), I'd horse ride and play spotlight tiggy for many hours on a Summer's night...not caring about snakes and spiders and stuff... with the 20 or so other kids that lived on our expansive estate.
(Mabel and I out on the estate)
Speaking of that estate, it upsets me to know it will all be gone, that a freeway will replace where my child hood memories lie. That I won't be able to take my kids out there and show them how un touched the place is out there...because there will be a station and a freeway and no more farms. Nothing us little people can do about it, right?
I look forward to my birthday, not for myself at all, but because I get to spend it with my hubby and my kids...and the things they make me are worth more than any diamond ring or ruby charm..but I won't say no to them, haha!
