Time after time...

We all know there's 60 seconds in a minute, 60 minutes in an hour, 24 hours in a day and so on culminating in the big 365 (more if its a Leap Year!) days in a year, but dont you find that this passage of time varies so much depending on what stage and age you are in your life? Who remembers the 6 week summer holiday when you're 10 years old being the longest 6 weeks of your life and that wait until Christmas was an eternity, which is even worse now that Christmas starts so much earlier! Days drag when you're young and in love, waiting for a holiday and even just going to work every about watching a bad film in the cinema, spending time with someone who just wants to talk about themselves, waiting for a bad support act to finish or sitting outside the Drs/dentist waiting room! Clock watching - a skill in itself!

But as you get older everything seems to speed up and before you know you've been married 35 years, together 37 and on your way to that big 60 when it doesn't seem two minutes since you reached that big 30 (where your kids are now!)

For me the first time life seemed to speed up was when the kids arrived. Development stages measured in days and months and years and then when they start school a term flies by so quickly (not for the teachers though!). Four terms and that's another year gone.

And now here we are with two 'grown ups' and their partners at the age we think we still are (if not younger!) plus three little grandchildren, who once again have accelerated the months and years as we watch them grow. Add to that the sadness of losing the older generation of your family as one by one they disappear like dominos and before you realise you have become that older generation despite still believing and behaving the age you think you are.

So as the Rolling Stones so rightly said

"Time waits for no one, no favours has he

Time waits for no one, and he won't wait for me"

(this was supposed to be a blog about snowdrops! Better write that now...)
