You Know You're Getting Old When..

I guess this is technically just a little list of facts about me, but they're all facts that people have stated make me old! ha! I love being an oldie at heart :) I especially love my cabinet. ;)

You know you are getting old when...

...you think the weather is a fascinating subject of discussion.

...you are the one complaining about the noise the neighbours are making.

...you often take afternoon naps.

...you become attached to / you overly enjoy furniture.



...you haven't a clue what music is in the charts.

...you love getting useful gifts like socks and bubble bath.

...you fall asleep while watching the TV.

...you prefer monopoly to most other social activities.




...you can't stand cheeky kids / you refer to your childhood to explain whats wrong with today's kids.

...you have lack in the friend department but don't care.

...you would much rather be comfortable than 'on trend'.

...you find bird watching/ feeding/ photographing enjoyable.




...you have a 'just in case' bag in your handbag.

...you are disgraced by some of the explicitness actually allowed to be shown on TV.

...you moan about back pain.

...you go into a room and forget why.



Can you relate to any of them? Or even add to the list? Let me know in the comments below!

  2. Uh-oh...I guess I'm old too! I would much rather read and drink tea than go out clubbing or partying. And I love useful gifts! Better go sign up for my senior citizen card :P

    1. Oh wow, thank you very much. That would be one of the best jobs in the world but it's such a hard career to get into unfortunately.
      And to be honest, we were all raised in such a better time and in a better way so we should be allowed to reminisce. :) x

  4. I have recently become so appreciative of naps!!! I often think why did I resist when I was younger! Lol

    My boyfriend and I for the past couple weeks have opted to stay in on a Friday or Saturday and play a board game with my parents!

    It's crazy how things change when you think about it.

    1. It really is crazy isnt it?! But I find time spent this way, I appreciate so much more. I haven't had a 'night out' in around 3 years but couldn't be bothered with one now anyways haha x

  5. Old is the new young! I'd like to add to the list - When the one night out you've been invited to in months seems like a complete hassle and you'd rather just stay at home! :D

  6. Most of these sound just like me but then again I don't think I've really acted my age since I was about 17. I'm such an old lady at heart! Haha

  7. Love this list, I think it's a little sad how many of these apply to me! Though I've always been overly partial to a game of monopoly :D xx

    1. Not sad at all! It's an ace way to live life. Plus monopoly is pretty badass...x

  8. You just confirmed that I'm old! Wahhhhh!!!! I swear I'm always giving my 8 year old a speech on how my childhood used to be! Ugh!
    Bird watching is not for old people! It's fun! Ok, maybe it is for old people. Ok, I'm leaving now. I'm gonna go sign up at the nursing home.

  9. That cabinet is so pretty! I have no idea about chart music either haha. I know I'm getting old because I go to bed earlier, eat more healthily and have regular naps haha.

    1. Thank you! I love it. :D Oh well it's good to know I'm not the only one that doesn't recognize songs.
      Naps are always a good thing.

  10. I can relate to many of them. But I'm going to pretend like I can't just so I won't come across as being old.
