When did I get old?


yesterday, the following series of thoughts trotted through my mind in the space of about two seconds…

‘i really need a pair of properly warm gloves for dog walking now the weather’s getting bitter…’

‘i think i’ll buy myself some in the next week or so…’

‘oh actually i can’t, because mum and jason will be miffed with me for buying stuff for myself since christmas and my birthday are just around the corner (my birthday is the 22nd december!)…’

‘it really is inconvenient to have my birthday and christmas all at once halfway through winter, because people feel you’ve cheated them out of a potential gift if you buy yourself things around this time of year…’

‘it really would have been better if i’d been born in october or november, because then i could ask for things like nice warm gloves and scarves for my birthday and then i’d be able to wear them right through the winter…’

‘i’ll tell mum that she really should have planned this all better…’

‘actually, that probably won’t go down too well…’
is this not the most boring train of thought ever?! and also, when did i stop wanting gameboy games and sea monkeys and start wanting gloves for my birthday? when did i get old?!

p.s the photo above is entirely unrelated to this post. it just makes me laugh! :)

    Rosie your words always make me chuckle (in a very good way). Your thoughts seem too similar to mine, and being old is the new young. That’s what I keep telling myself anyway *trots off to dig out nintendo snez* xxx

    Teddy is so adorable. I have a golden cocker spaniel who looks just like him. How old is he now

    Ha, brilliant! I couldn’t think of anything for my birthday, so my mum and dad surprised me with some new ghds because mine had fallen apart a few weeks before. I wasn’t expecting it at all, so I burst into tears because it was such a nice present just as a little mental collage of my grandma, who used to burst into tears at everything, started piecing itself together in fast-forward, and I wondered if I was old or just wimpy.

    Your dog is *so* adorable. Mine is naughty and cloud-like.

    If you think that’s bad, yesterday I had this conversation with myself ‘i really liked that chocolate i bought last week, where was that from? i might get some on my lunch break. Oh that’s right, it was in London, and I don’t live there. well that sucks’

    we’re all old and boring, it’s only the brave amongst us that admit it x

    My thought processes are very similar, I usually go off on about 10 different tangents…honestly believe if people had to be in my head they would be permanently dizzy

    Its bad enough just having Christmas to contend with when you’re thinking about stuff you want to buy but should probably put on your wishlist instead because you can’t think of anything else to ask for. Definitely glad my birthday isn’t for another few months!

    I had the same realisation a while back, getting excited about half price washing powder is not cool. It’s just not cool.x

    For my last birthday all I wanted was the contents of the Lakeland catalouge, if I’m this “old” at 25 I’m destined to be using a zimmer frame at 40!

    I’m exactly the same with birthdays – mine is the 28th and my mum always tells me off if I go shopping beforehand and treat myself!

    I think I’ve always been a bit old tho – my Christmas list is just so practical and boring (warm clothes, novelty socks and books) :-)

    Haha yes, my birthday is just after Christmas, and I think I’m going to ask for a better yoga mat. Or a DSLR. But my mom will probably just laugh at me and get me a yoga mat. And being old rocks, didn’t you know?

    This made me laugh so much. I’ve only started following your blog so this is the first post I’ve properly read. I want to go through and read all your others now! I remember sea monkeys although they never really worked did they? Or was this just me?! xx
