Growing old is mandatory; growing up is optional

I've always had this slight little fear of aging. Wrinkles i'm scared of, having to wear Tena Ladies i'm scared of, aches and pains i'm scared of, droopiness i'm scared of, illness i'm scared of, seeing the wrinkly bum of an old man i'm scared of (cheers Sex and The City), greying i'm scared of, starting to like lavender i'm scared of, losing family and friends i'm scared of, backache i'm scared of, WIs i'm scared of, liking ornaments i'm scared of, buying Wearthers Originals i'm scared of ... i'm most scared at the being old thing.
Ok .. what am i leading to? ..... yes, i'm still in my 20s .. but 30 i can see in the not so distant future, and today i was shopping. How does this make me feel old? Well .. i was walking towards Next in Meadowhall and i near on bumped into two teenage boys. As this happened one looked up and went 'Wow' ... i quite liked this, because tbf i was feeling a bit rough, i was tired, i'd spent all morning doing Zumba and i was hot. His mate nodded at him, but then his brain kicked in and he went 'bit old though mate' .... what? I'd have slapped them, if i wasn't pretending to have not heard ... and if they didn't look like potential happy slappers, i just tried my hardest to 'look young' as i walked away. How much is botox?
I AM NOT OLD!!!!!!!!!

Knock knock ... Who's there? .... Banana ...

Oh good evening,

Last Sunday i had an impromptu visit to the City Hall in Sheffield to see the genius that is Jimmy Carr.  Turns out if you book a couple of days before the event you can get pretty decent seats ... row D in the stalls ... who'd have thought?!
He was pretty brilliant.  But me, being the blonde i am, can't remember much of it .. no i wasn't drunk.  I just remember it being really funny.  He is King at beating down hecklers, even invites them into heckling.

So to recap on this highly informative blog post ... i went to see a comedian ... and he was funny ... oh the insight.

And i'm up at 6am tomorrow to do a car boot :( so if anyone comes across me i shall be highly grumpy.
