Getting Older

Hi everybody,
I was reading the obituaries notices last night and there was the surname of one of my first boyfriends. I looked at the initial of his christian name and thought yes his was an 'L'; so went looking on further into the notices and sure enough it was him. He was just 56 years old.
My feelings was this is so weird to think one of my first boyfriends has died. I was about 19 or 20 years old at the time. I discovered he had never married and there wasn't any partner.
I feel so old now. argh!!
This afternoon i went to the doctors for a routine check for ( well all you women know what for) It really hurt!! Then was told that as i am now over fifty i am entitled to a free mammogram. So now will have to ring and find out where my nearest clinic is.
We have a new C.E.O. at work who has already sacked the kitchen manager/cook and bringing a few changes to how shifts are going to done. Down the track i have been told that we are going to be taking out furniture of residents rooms and cleaning their room entirely. Today a man came to give a demo of a steam cleaner that does shampooing and vacuuming. I was asked my opinion of it and i said it was a bit big to which i was told you can still move it on its trolley. I thought why ask me you have already made up your mind to buy one. We will be given more time to do these extra rooms but i was happy with the hours i have already let alone more.
