When every photo now is a bad photo. It's just a bad photo, I don't look like that through the mirror!

When you watch a professional sports person and then depressingly remember you had also watched their parents a few years earlier.

You get a grey/white hair.
You get a grey/white pube.
You have to slap on anti-wrinkle cream.All over.
You go for soft biscuits instead of hard ones.
You can't drink much anymore and prefer a hot chocolate instead.
You need to go to the toilet more.
Your bones start cracking for no reason.
You need help getting up from sitting on the floor too long.
You start looking at potential partners your own age instead of the younger ones.

Or is that just me?!

When I buy clothes now, my main considerations are a) comfort, b) quality and c) whether they are baggy enough to hide my gut!

I had to Google Taylor Swift today after hearing something about her on the radio, allegedly she has the best selling female solo album to date. I've never heard any of her music though.

I used to like the half pence piece and pound notes- the halfpenny was so small it was like toy money and pound notes made me feel I had more money than I did. Mind you even as a child I found it odd that so many things were 49 1/2p or 99 1/2p,and that somehow that halfpence off was supposed to make things so much more enticing.

Also you know you`re getting (or feeling) old when everyone under about 25 seems like another species,or at the very least someone you could have technically given birth to.

I suppose another sign is when you find yourself reminiscing on threads like these!

Another one is when you start remembering all summers as being gently warm and sunny,and all childhood Christmasesesesesss as white. And just generally finding yourself thinking (or even muttering aloud) that `things` just used to be better.

And to add insult to injury, when those people you could have technically given birth to have more life experience than yourself.

Being scared of technology and feeling like an irrelevant dinosaur, (and illiterate) because of this aversion. It's the behaviours associated with it as well. Think back to summer of 2013, Andy Murray has just won Wimbledon and appears on the balcony to offer the fans a sight of the trophy. You expected rapturous applause and I'm sure there was, but what I got from the TV was pictures of 80% + of people raising their camera phones; capturing the moment for posterity but forgetting to live the moment, or living it though a device.

You know you're getting old when you're on antiques roadshow, not as a guest, but as an antique.

You start recognising the similarities in yourself and your parents.

when you think about burial or cremation or donating your body to medical science and whether they'd want your body or not.

You can't drink any fluids an hour before bed or you'll be up a few times needing to piss.That's so annoying.

You've got a stick solely designated to stirring paint, and you know exactly where that stick is.
It's 6 o'clock on Friday and you're in your pyjamas.
Comfort and practicality are the main criteria in the purchase of new clothes.

You remember all four versions of Band Aid being released.*





*I was only 4 when the original was out so have only selected memories but I do remember my dad buying it.

I remember the first very well and am aware of the current one but have no recollection of versions 2 and 3.

When you see a famous actor who you fancied when you were a schoolboy/girl starting to play "older" characters on TV. In my case, seeing Julia Sawalha on TV last night playing a Middle-Aged Mum character reminded me that Press Gang was a long time ago
