It's Friday! Yay!

I have just phoned my mother, she was tipsy, I could hear my step father rabbiting away in the background and belching!

It was only 4pm!

"What are you celebrating?"I asked her.
"I can't remember" She giggled
"What are you drinking?"
"Cheap champagne!" Slurring slightly
"Any left?" I asked
"Not much"

Say no more!

There is something about being over 70 that seems to make drinking in the afternoon more acceptable, don't you think?!! Honestly, the older generation..........

Some oldies tell me they drink more because it helps to dull all their aches and pains. That's their excuse anyway....

Well I am so glad she's OK and I guess she is too, thus the champagne! I have been back a few posts to catch up and feel bad I didn't manage to pop over when you were going through it. I am having touble getting onto the computer it just seems to be mayhem all the time!

Re. the list, try not to think about it and go into self-preservation auto-pilot.

Hoping you have a good weekend. x

Not many things about being 70 that I could look forward to apart from drinking in the middle of the afternoon!

Good on your Mama I say. Life is for living, and no worries, when you are 70 let the good times roll!

Have a great weekend Suburbia

My mother wouldn't have her sherry until 6pm.
so when she was staying with us we would put the clock forward........!
Hope you are doing OK?

A drink, a giggle, a snooze: life of the retirees. It beats driving on freeways.

MissKris said...

Well...I still have 15 years until I reach 70 but reaching 50 was pretty liberating in itself. HA!

Carol said...

As long as it's past 12 then it's completely acceptable to have a drink :-)

Maggie, there's now way you are anywhere near 70 yet!

Expat mum said...

Yes, but they're in bed by 7pm. Mind you, I'm usually not far behind!

Rose said...

Good for your Mum! After her near-scare last week, I think she should celebrate. As for me, when I get old, I'm going to eat all the chocolate I want...in fact, I might just start now:)

Suburbia said...

Rose, I am ahead of you!

Liz said...

Good for them!
