You know you’re getting old when the younger friends you’re with suggest going on to a club and you lie and tell them you have an early start the next day.

You know you’re getting old when a night in is so much more preferable to a night out.

You know you’re getting old when retracing your steps still doesn’t tell you why you went into that room.

You know you’re getting old when standing back to admire the clean and shiny bathroom has become the highlight of your day.

You know you’re getting old when putting your feet up in front of the log burner while watching ‘Country File’ is the second highlight of your day.

You know you’re getting old when you’ve missed the end of ‘Country File’ because you fell asleep.

You know you’re getting old when you choose the meat and two veg option at the restaurant and no one else does.

    You know you are getting old when:

    (1) You have a note pinned to your clothing stating that “underpants go under your pants”.

    (2) You are trying to defrost a frost free fridge.

    (3) You try licking a postage stamp ony to realize that the stamp has an adhesive to keep it in place.

    (4) When you start huffing and puffing on your treadmill after working out a few minutes and feeling exhausted.

    Truly an experience of old age huh. 🙂
