...you walk down the high street and you are not given a flyer for the night club

or, when you now think Club 18-30 is the time to go to bed.

When the shop assistants call you "madam". Or when people step off the pavement so you don't have to.

The first session in the garden in Spring when you think you should break yourself in gradually.

...when you're offered a seat on a full train...

When a young (30ish) lady asks you, in the local greengrocers, how many sweet potatoes she should cook with her butternut squash to make soup!  I suggested 2 large ones, roasted, to serve 6, but then asked her why did she ask me.  She said I looked as if I'd know how to cook soup from scratch!  I took it as a compliment, even though I am a trendy 66!

When you start to make little groaning noises when bending down or getting up, - even though you're middle aged.

You remember when seeds were sixpence a packet.

You mutter that people don't know how to make real compost nowadays.

You add up your seed list for 2014 and remember that you could have once bought a car for the same price.

You end up joining a garden forum and start replying to posts!

Patsy, I have been asked for advice about potatoes on several occasions when in the veg section of the supermarket - do I look like the sister of a potato farmer?   Perhaps I do

Doesn't apply to me.  Can still run the 100 metres in 30 seconds

Verd I'll race you ( on the flat)

Patsy 66 is the new 44. But all the ladies on the forum are all 27

Except for me KEF; I'll be 66 in about 3 weeks -  it's just hit me!

But I DO run every morning and go to dance classes

I think I don't really believe it, never thought I would get this far!

Artjak you are as old as you feel. You will officially be 27 in 3 weeks.

Doubt I'll get to 66, unless I leave the Xmas goodies & booze alone.

You must announce your B/day so we can all "sing" to you. x

Ooh, fab, and you can all have a big slice of stem ginger and almond cake with marscapone icing

When you say things that your mum used to say

When you get a "sensible" car, when you like sprouts and when an "old " person  ??ou meet is your own age.

So true Kef, 

07/01/2014 at 22:41

Oh lord I'm doomed before jy 28th grey hair!! I creak and groan when bending and get let off producing ID when buying fine ales in Tesco because I showed them my cars keys and that I owned a Volvo so must be of age.
