Day 233

Today is the last day of my 5th decade. Phil’s lovely daughter delivered my favourite flowers (seen here) and wine and chocolates for me to have tomorrow, and Phil is taking me out to lunch. I keep thinking phrases like ‘in the twilight of my years’, ‘eligible for a senior railcard’ (thanks April!) ‘over the hill’ and ‘sixty is the new 40’ (no it isn’t – and thank god for that, a lot of my 40’s were horrendous!) but really I’m still 20 in my head, so none of it makes much sense and I’ll carry on being me regardless.

(I wish the bloody Govt hadn’t altered retirement dates, I should be retired tomorrow and having a high old time, but a couple of years ago they moved the goal posts and I have to wait until I’m 66 now πŸ™„ as I need the pension I get then, not being a wealthy Tory politician or the like). I love my job so I probably would have stayed working anyway, but it’s the principal.

Anyway here are my lovely lilies, they smell devine and the aroma is spreading through the house. Lovely!

  1. Well…you pretty much said the most important thing right there: β€œreally I’m still 20 in my head”. I never care about age in any way whatsoever. Just live and enjoy life is what I always say! And of course: Great and wonderful picture as always! 😊 Hope you will have a fun B-day tomorrow: enjoy it! πŸ˜ƒπŸ˜ƒ

  2. Great flowers, and happy birthday for tomorrow, with bells on!
    Just remember that you will always be seven and a half years younger than me, whatever happens!
    Have a great day, and embrace being 60! Lean into it, it only gets worse after 61! πŸ™‚
    (I wouldn’t agree that it’s the ‘new 40’, but it might be the new 53!)
    Best wishes, Pete. xx
