    Or, as in my case, you could have got a mortgage in your late thirties and your adult dd, enjoying so much living at home, is still there and has moved in her boyfriend too :D as well as sweet talked you into adopting 2 cats :D:D

    It's not being 50, it's just the 11th anniversay of your 39th birthday. Just be careful not to combine the wisdom of youth with the energy of old age.

    On retiral from my very staid collar and tie job there was the inevitable 'do' with speeches.
    I casually threw in the comment that I could now indulge in a few pastimes that had previously been denied to me. I indicated that my first priority was to grow a ponytail.

    Cue shocked looks. Haven't got round to it yet but it is on my to do list when I reach 70!!!

    Have a read of 'Warning' by Jenny Joseph (change the gender if necessary!)

    http://www.poemhunter.com/poem/warning/

    I used to have this pinned up in my office until I left the place. Cheers me up every time I read it.

    I love that poem too - very me - used to have it on my notice board in the kitchen until it feel in the cat bowl!
    Here dead we lie because we did not choose
    To live and shame the land from which we sprung.
    Life, to be sure, is nothing much to lose,
    But young men think it is,
    And we were young.
