Daily Prompt: Fifty

Five Firsts Since Fifty:

Beginning Blogging – I first started blogging a couple of months past my fiftieth birthday, and after a couple of false starts I think I’m finally where I want to be with it!

Writing Structured Poetry – Through blogging I’ve discovered the satisfaction of writing poetry within the strict structural frameworks of Haiku, Tanka, Limericks and Sonnets, and am extremely thankful for that.

Pulling a Pint – I’ve done lots of different jobs over the years while bringing up my family, but I’d never worked in a pub or pulled a pint before turning 50. I’m not sure for how much longer I’ll carry on working in a pub, but for now it’s a job, and it’ll do for the time being.

Singing Karaoke – I lost my Karaoke virginity at my friend Sue’s 50th birthday party with a bunch of girls from work – we all got up together and sang Sister Sledge ‘We are fam-i-lee… I got all my sisters with meee…!’ and it really was great fun.

Eating a Doner Kebab – Hmmm… this is one first I may well not be repeating any time soon! But at least I’ve tried one now… all I can say is I can see why it’s a favourite fast food option for many after a few drinks – but in my book you’d need to be drunk to enjoy it 🙂
