    Default When did you realise you were "old"?

    Well tonight I needed a few things so I decided to head down to our local shopping centre.

    As I was walking around I saw midriffs showing and a mass number of teenagers who were wearing less clothes than what I would wear to bed. All I could think of is how incredibly cold they must be as I walked through in my jeans, jumper and uggies.

    While I am not "old" by any stretch of the imagination I realised in that moment, I was to those that surrounded me "old"!

    What moment did you realise you were "old"?

    When you wake up to a nice sunny day and your first thought is all the washing you'll be able to hang up on the line!

    When I walked into the showbag hall at the Easter show and looked at all the bags with lollies and said 'nah, I can get this stuff cheaper at Coles'.

    Also whenever I scream at the teenage brats who hide behind my bins to smoke while they wait for the school bus...although I felt even older the day I called their school to complain!

    When It's a bright sunny day and I think "beaut, I can get the nappies nice and dry on the line". Old.
