You know you are getting old when... 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 you're offered a seat on a full train...

  • 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? image  Perhaps I do image

    No-one knows if you've done your housework, but everyone knows if you've done your gardening !

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

    But I DO run every morning and go to dance classesimage

    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. image

    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
