8 years later and I've actually still pretty much got it all. Sure, receded gradually about an inch until I was 25. And sure, not as thick as it used to be. It wasn't until I was 25 that anyone else really would notice. And they only did because I pointed it out. Because I haven't really started balding from the back yet, people don't really remember your hairline before so they say they don't notice (they could just be being kind of course).

But considering what I thought I was in for (dad and both grandparents bald and have never known them to ever have any hair) then I'm not doing too bad at 30.

No doubt I will lose my hair, but it may continue being gradual and (hopefully) well into my 40s. Yet, I would have experienced some form since I first noticed myself at 22). Where as others who will have had thick heads of hair up until their late 30s may suddenly loose it all in the space of a few years.

Definitely a strange one and you can't really call it. If you're bothered by hair loss, hopefully it's very gradual and unnoticeable for you too.
Ah I don't really mind, I don't exactly want to look like a monk in my early 30's though

It's just weird, like its appeared out of nowhere, I never really expected it as hair was always quite far down on my list of things I cared about..just had a bit of a double take when I caught a bit more skin looking back at me in the mirror as I was looking up

When you can remember using film in cameras. Yes it's true, you actually had to wait a week to get the prints back to see how your photo came out. Can you imagine how the selfie addicts of today would've coped with that lol

When you can remember using a rotary phone

When you can remember having blackboards in school

lol I just put in some camera film to Boots. I've had 4 rolls of colour film and one black and white film knocking about in a drawer for ages. They must be 10+ (maybe 15+) years old. Have absolutely no idea what is on them . I'm guessing my parents and my then dog mostly....
I was amazed Boots still did this! 2 days for the colour film and 14 days for the b&w as it has to be sent away. Made me feel all nostalgic.

You're not alone Change, I'm like a moth to a flame regarding the National Trust Membership thread. I'm not entirely sure why, but it might have something to do with seeing how older landmarks are able to stand the test of time. Talking of which, it's always good to be a part of this group.

On a side note, I wish the background colour in the Club 30-81 threads were a darker shade of blue. I find the lighter shade of blue makes me feel colder. It's ok for the 20+ aged members, as they don't feel the cold like we do in here. And another thing, it would be nice if we had some emoticons that expresses our age. Not once have I seen a comfy pair of emoticon slippers to choose from. Also, where is the emoticon that expresses our appreciation for napping? Sure, you have the emoticon for sleeping, but where is the drool? After all, it's common knowledge that older members like ourselves drool when we nap. Although on second thoughts, they have given us the dancing sausage and we should be grateful for that

Asda Fruit & Fibre. That's all I'm saying. Ok, I will say a bit more. It works like a dream! You could say I haven't felt so cleansed in a long time!

It's also good news that it's getting warmer now. I'm sure we can all appreciate that in this group. Although I don't think we should get too complacent, as I'm sure I heard there's a possibility of more snow in April. So make sure you keep your thermal socks on standby.

When the arrival of items such as below completely turns your day around



I just noticed the sellers address was visible, now I envisage hoards of hobbling bent over SAUKers breaking in (very slowly) to steal all his voltarol.

You start getting people message you on dating sites asking if you'd date a younger man/woman. I am now falling into the older woman category. Good Lord.

You hear kids screaming (or perhaps to young ears merely playing in a semi high tone) at checkout and silently shake your head, wishing you could shake some silence into them. (I actually like kids- the little migraine triggering cuties that they are).

When it's sunny and one set of neighbors start playing 60's music while the other end plays house and you just sit there spitting out swear words that you can't enjoy a bit of peace and quiet for a change. 10 years ago, it was these bastards that were knocking to tell me to turn my music down. How things change.

When you start actually listening to the news and not just reading the celeb gossip column. Who is this Kim Jong-Un fellow? I think i'd like a little nodding one for my car like one of those nodding bull dogs. I'm joking. I don't have a car.

Also when you start wearing a hat to go outside because it's a bit nippy out there and you don't wanna get a chill. Yup, i'm definitely cougar material.

Adverts use music you grew up with...which used to be 'cool', for products you can't afford/have no interest in purchasing, like family cars.

***8230; you see a circle pit starting at a festival and decide it's not a great idea to join in

*disclaimer: this happened to me yesterday, but my decision was based more on the heel injury I've had for the past week than thinking I was too old to mosh - I was struggling to stand at the time (it was my third festival of the weekend).
