I’ve never been fixated on age; my theory being that age doesn’t really matter for we will all die on the day we are going to die!
Possibly, my attitude is influenced by the fact that there is a bit of an age gap between my elder sister, brother and I – eight and six years respectively. No matter my age I will always be the youngest!
Recently, I have become a little more “aware” of the ageing process; not my age though, my eldest niece’s!
Favourite Eldest Niece was born in the middle of my teenage years. I can still remember sharing the news that I was an aunt with my high school friends! So, in some ways, we “grew up” together.
Niece turned 41 at the weekend and that makes me feel old!
It doesn’t really make sense, I know, but her entering middle age actually makes me feel older than the fact that all my children are now in their thirties; or that I am grandmother! Go figure.
And the figure is 41!
