Feeling my Age

I have an upcoming birthday (19/5). The NHS have sent me an advance birthday present (12/5). Now I know how old I am for certain!

This is my first scheduled mammogram. I’ve had one before, when I had a wee scare a few years ago. But this is the first one that tells me that I am now over 55.


How did that happen? I swear it was only last year that I was 17!

Excuse me, I am going  to go and fondle a few skeins until I feel soothed. Maybe I’ll come up with one for the Herringbones…

      @Heather Cawte, yes, there are some significant drawbacks to having children 🙂 Can’t quite get my head around the idea that mine are in their thirties.
