Hi and welcome to Seasoned with Sassy. SWS came about after over 10 years of blogging about being a single parent and teaching others How to Blog. Although I am still a parent though not single and they are now fully fledged adults living their own lives, I felt the need for more sass in my life. To find my hidden sassy and to celebrate reaching the landmark of ‘being over the hill’.
Being over the hill is wonderful though. I care less what others think. Care more about the smaller things in life that have become more important. Things like silence. It’s so underestimated these days. We are so busy filling our lives with stuff and things that we have forgotten how beneficial just being can be. Being in the moment. Just watching.
When we are younger there is so much pressure to reach each milestone in life. Have children, get married, have a nice house, have a career-driven job, and oh don’t forget to be happy. Now I can do more as I please. Children have grown up which is a whole new dynamic. I am finally living the dream job-wise. Life is good.
Turning 50 in a lockdown was the most exciting thing I would ever do. I got engaged. Got married – well… getting our bus passes is scarily close so we didn’t dally around. I also inherited 3 more daughters and 7 granddaughters.
