Hello, everyone. I’m Pauline. Pauline from the Paddock. Once upon a time, over 60 years ago, I was the little girl on the left. Even then Big Sister was one of my roles in life.
I’ve had many roles between then and now, none of them more satisfying than my current role of mother and grandmother. I feel that grandmothering is my main mission in life. I might not be trusted to keep my footing on loose rocks but once plonked on my butt, I can always be trusted to keep my little people from harm.
I often find it’s safest to sit and do a number of things these days. Easier and safer than squatting or bending– and risking not being able to straighten up. When I want to get up from sitting on the ground I can roll myself onto all fours and take it from there. As long as there is no-one behind me with a camera, it can save me from a lot of embarrassment.
The only time you are likely to see me in the lead is when I’m on the scent of a good photo opportunity.
I might be old but I still like to have a laugh and am happy to play the clown occasionally.
I’m frequently the lady propping up the wall with a camera in a grandchild’s face.
Bev and I were young mothers together. Now we are a pair of silver haired old ladies who still like to spend time together. How good is that?
When I saw this topic, I thought it meant Who Am I? I’m glad I looked at it more carefully. I gave up asking Who Am I a long time ago. I know, and if anyone else wants to find out, that’s up to them. I’m old enough to have a take me or leave me approach to life. I know some people ‘get me’ and some people don’t and I’m happy with that.
I’m looking forward to this topic telling me a bit more about the other members of the FSO team.
