I've just taken two pieces of bread out the packet for a-toasting and as I went to put them in the toaster, two pieces popped out at me. I got one helluva shock, I can't for the life of me remember putting them in.

Senility is on the horizon for me, it seems.

Since turning 40 I've noticed a massive change. When I was in my early to mid 30s, I could still fool myself that I was young, that my life was something ahead of me. It's like climbing a hill. Until your late 30s you feel that you are going up. And at the top of the hill is a sun-drenched paradise. No matter how sh*t things are, you can fool yourself that you are working towards something, some kind of promised land. Meeting new people, having new experiences, all of this is useful and will help you reach your destination.

Turning 40 is like reaching the top of that hill. But instead of a sun-drenched palace, you find a roadside cafe under lead-grey skies!! And now you are no longer going up but down. I really miss those comforting illusions. You know you are getting old when you no longer have any hope. I don't mean you can't be happy. On the contrary, even old people can be very happy. But it's happiness without hope (unless you are religious). When you are young you don't believe in death. You know it's real and inevitable, but somehow it doesn't apply to you. Rationally you know you are going to die, but emotionally you know you are going to live forever. When you turn 40 that all goes.

When you are talking on the phone to an American girl and she doesn't know who the singer Neil Young is.

^^^ I must be old, I've just realised it's 25 years since I last saw him live!

I'm guessing she's not into folky country rock, as there are quite a few young Americans who do know him.

Looking through photos of family holidays you remember fondly, then realise you're now older than your mum and dad were in those photos.

LOL yes! It's also why it becomes ever more ridiculous to be still treated as a child. It's like, Dad, I remember you when you were younger than I am now! This 'I am right about everything because I am the adult' thing becomes less and less convincing each year.

I can't believe I did this, but...

When you come away on a trip and realise, at the airport, that you don't have your house keys and that you must have left them in the lock on the back door when you left home!

Senility has started.

The upside is that until recently, I've never had a genuine friend but when I'm able to call someone who drives twenty miles just to retrieve my keys and put them somewhere secure for me to find when I get home, I know that I have one now.

^ going away on a trip can distract from one's routine and make one do "other" things, like the only* time I've ever locked myself out of my house was the day before I went overseas.
That was years ago, though, not senility!

Glad your friend was there to do that for you.

You start feeling personally affronted when phones, self check outs etc come up with errors. I just clicked in the wrong place on a form, got an error, and nearly shouted at my phone "ALRIGHT, I KNOW, GIVE ME A ****ING SECOND WILL YOU, I SUPPOSE YOU'RE MR BLOODY PERFECT?!?"

^^^^^ I despise self-checkout machines with a seething hatred, yet I still use them because otherwise I have to actually speak to a human. Recently M&S thought it'd be a great promotional deal to have Ant+Dec and Amanda Holden voice the tills! Ffs, Amanda Bloody Holden telling me I have put the wrong item in the bagging area! No, your scales are miscalibrated as usual you dim lass.
