How old would you be if you didn't know how old you were?

Photo Week One:  Aging

I’m not sure what counts as ‘old’, to the 14 year old niece I am “proper” old, but the younger one thinks I can’t be old until I have children (I may never grow old in that case).  The newest edition has no thoughts on the matter and simply squeals, gurgles and looks at me with a face that says ‘you’re not my daddy, go away’.

I occasionally feel old.  This winter I have felt it a lot, what with longer working hours and pressures and the cold that just seems to keep on giving.  I occasionally notice it, mostly when other people around me have birthdays and I am reminded of the comparative time lines.  But on the whole I don’t really think about it.  I have to work it out on my fingers when faced with the ‘what age will you be on your next birthday’ question when talking to my bank.  I don’t feel like I did in my 20’s anymore, which with sage hindsight is a very good thing, but I don’t think I am anywhere close to the top of the hill and I have a little way before any more ‘milestones’ .

I think I shall just stay around early 30’s for a bit and see how I feel in a few years.
