This year I turn 30, and it scares the living day lights out of me. I know it’s not “old” but it’s making me feel old
A few weeks ago and went out and got my haircut. It was getting really long and frizzy and was driving me insane, so I left BG with daddy and went and it chopped short. I came away feeling great about myself, thinking I had had a really cool shortish cut. That was until I went to Musical Mini’s the next day and realised that I had the same cut as half of the other mothers, who were a good 5-8 years older than me, that made me feel old.
Last week OH bought me some new trousers, I’m in a horrible in between sizes stage, nothing fits me and it was getting me down. I choose a pair of brown cords (I have never worn cords before), which I thought would look great with my brown suede trainers; I just look dumpy, dowdy and old.
Me and OH had a BG free night thanks to my best friend, we went to the pictures and then for dinner. Long gone are the nights of drinking and dancing!
8 months after I gave birth to BG my sister who is 10 years younger than me had her first baby that made me feel old.
I’ve started to complain that certain types of music is just noise, I’m starting to sound like my father. That makes me feel old.
You’re only as old and the man you feel they say; he’s 5 years older than me!
I just have to face it I’m getting older; I now need to decide whether I’m going to do it gracefully or disgracefully
