Is this Senility?.....


I had a birthday yesterday...... One that ends in an "0".

Thing is, I didn't realise until nearly lunchtime.

It's true I was up at 4:30am to go to the Northampton Balloon Festival, in time to catch the morning take off at 6:00am, but this is a poor excuse. After taking some photographs, I returned home, had a cup of coffee, put the telly on, and after a while, noticed some unopened cards I'd propped up on the mantelpiece a couple of days before. "Cripes" thought I, "Better open them I suppose."

I've always been very anti birthdays, try not to let on at work, and never celebrate much....But I've never actually forgotten about it before.

Is this the beginning of old aged enfeeblement I wonder?.....................

Hope you enjoyed your birthday. So you spent a week in Norwich huh - did you wave when you drove past where I live? LOL

Great photos of the city - and where are all those big junctions you are talking about?

Wellingborough - a nice quiet sedate town to take your test - good luck with it - hope you get a set of wheels soon

It's only impending senility if the number the precedes the 0 is an 8 or 9, and perhaps not even then. Studies have shown that the less attention a person pays to birthdays, the better they age. Gardening helps, too, of course.
