As you get old

As you get old.

Now, I'm not the only one getting old - I have it on good authority that it happens to everybody.
BUT as I get old life tends to get 'silly'.

Where does that commodity 'time' go to? I wake up in the morning and the pot is full of time.

I have things to do, time to do them in and life looks good. I get to lunchtime and I realise that things are 'slipping'.

By the evening that commodity has long gone and I'm looking back over the day and wondering where it all went.

Ah, I know, I've been robbed!!! Robbed of MY time.
What can I do about it?

PLEASE, if anybody's got the answer do let me know.

It helps to have a jar on your mantelpiece, to keep your time in, Then you don't lose any! This is what I did, years and years ago, when we were living in Sydney and Daylight Saving first started. When the clock turned back at the end of it, I always felt cheated of that hour, so I had a jar for all my saved hours, until I was ready to spend them.
When we moved to Brisbane,I discovered that one of the children had thought to pack the jar full of hours, to bring here with us - no daylight saving up here, I suppose the hours are still there, waiting to be used!

LOL Jane! I feel the same way. I posted a picture on my blog drawn by Bella Sinclair about time. If only we could save time and use it when we need a little extra. I did however tat some last night. I am making another MOP button. I love this pattern. I'll post it when I'm done. Have a great day!

As my older sister said recently, "Time is the most valuable thing you have because you can never get it back." Ahhh, the wisdom of age!

Did you call the police about your stolen time?

Pratchett covered all that in his book Thief of Time. Turns out that there are these monks of time who dole it out. They take some from the bottom of the ocean, where no one is paying attention anyway, and pass it around where it's needed. However, since we started sending subs, etc down there (ie someone's paying attention now), there's less time available. That's why there's less time these days.
