Ageing Disgracefully

 Morning all.  I was so impressed by all the fabulous entries to my 'Shades of Blue' challenge but it's time to move on over at Cardz4guyz. Our new theme is 'Age is just a Number'.  I am fully intent on not acting my age.  I always said I would grow old disgracefully. Despite my body screaming at me that I am the wrong side of 50, Wednesday evenings see me scampering (ok, scampering may be pushing it a bit) about like a kid on the local cricket pitch.  The under 11s think it's hilarious to make me run about.  I try to teach them to do as I say not as I do.  I can't throw for toffee but I can teach them the technique.  I bowl at least one wide every over but I can show them how to do it properly.  As for my batting - well, nowadays I take my glasses off, hand them to the umpire, squint and pray.  They still love it if they can get me out.

Anyway, you don't get many lady cricketing images - and besides it's Cardz4guyz - so I used this fabulous image from Dr Digi's House of Stamps.  

I am no where near 60 yet but I know someone who will get there sooner than me.

Please pop over and join in the challenge.  We love to see your projects.

Thanks for reading.

Love Dawn x
