    Yikes, yes, it is quite concerning when I realised that some of my colleagues where not even born when I started working in IT in schools! ;-(

    My 50th birthday now seems like a distant memory. However when I think about other 'landmarks' [leaving school, graduation, getting my first job,...] some seem like very recent memories. I am sure that you will feel the same when you get to this point.

    Every time I wake up with a hangover. Especially when I've not even had enough to get drunk the night before. It never used to happen...

    (it may be my own fault for preferring real ale, red wine and whiskey as drinks - pretty much the worst combination for a hangover)

    Just comming up to my 50th later this year, age was just a number until last year my wife had her 50th and organised a party etc, now I think about that number and how old I am. Never used to bother me! Leave me alone! Get asked what am I going to do for my birthday to celebrate, don't know, never really celebrated them before, head in sand mode, if I don't recognise them it's just a number and it means nothing, stay young in the head even if the body these days says otherwise! But should I do something or just ignore it like every other one?

    Was just about to reply to this when I realised I couldn't remember how old I am... 33 or 34?
    Must be feeling it if the memory is going...

    I don't need my friends to remind me how old I am; I've got a bladder for that.

    I remember feeling old when I was about 34. it lasted a few years and faded. The old feeling came back with an almighty bump when I hit 40. I can not explain the feeling but my body fell apart over night.

    When I was a child I had a fever
    My hands felt just like two balloons
    Now I got that feeling once again,
    I can't explain, you would not understand
    this is not how I am.
    I,
    I have become
    comfortably numb

    (or perhaps even more appropriate)

    So you run and you run to catch up with the sun but it's sinking
    Racing around to come up behind you again.
    The sun is the same in a relative way but you're older,
    Shorter of breath and one day closer to death.

    Every year is getting shorter never seem to find the time.
    Plans that either come to naught or half a page of scribbled lines
    Hanging on in quiet desperation is the English way
    The time is gone, the song is over,
    Thought I'd something more to say.
