Another year done

The really observant of you all may have noticed a single character in my profile has changed.  An 8 and changed to a 9 - yes folks it is my birthday today and I've entered my fifth decade on this planet.  My daughter is constantly now reminding me that I have only one year until I'm 50, however I was thinking it funny that we actually count our ages as years past.  You are nought when born... funny you don't count money like that or houses... who lives a 0 Station Road?  If we counted years like money I'd be 50 already.

An inevitable sign of my age is that I needed new glasses, the biggest problem the last years is reading I have to take them off to read then back on to look at the TV etc.  So I've got a pair of varifocals now.  I'll see how I get on with them but so far not too bad.   Although I get strange looks as I move my head about looking at things at the moment, I'm trying to figure out the best bit to look through for this or that.


Anyway - after we'd been out for an early birthday meal yesterday and a walk along the river my darling daughter busied herself in the kitchen and this is now awaiting my return home after work :-)

  6. Happy belated birthday! I don't quote my mother often, but I will here. To paraphrase: "Getting older isn't necessarily fun, but it beats the hell out of not getting older...if you know what I mean." Succinctly put I'd say!
