I’m turning 27 and I’m okay with that

I turn 27 on Sunday and I’m okay with that.  Totally okay with it.  I’m definitely not going to freak out like last year!  I’ve come a long way…

Here’s are some things I’ve done at some point in the last year that mean I’m finally beginning to act like an adult:

  • Paid a bill before it was overdue
  • Compared prices on health insurance
  • Added water to a bottle of washing-up liquid to extend it’s shelf-life
  • Patted a passing child on the head for no apparent reason
  • Called to ‘confirm’ an appointment
  • Took out the rubbish by myself
  • Complained about ‘kids nowadays’
  • Set aside a stick specifically to stir paint with
  • Assigned hoovering to a certain day of the week
  • Asked somebody what the ‘cool’ radio station is
  • Saved TESCO coupons up for a ‘rainy day’ (actually saved anything up for a ‘rainy day’)
  • Did a ‘clean-up’ before taking holidays
  • Took my parents out for dinner
  • Tidied the ‘arts and crafts’ cupboard (or had an ‘arts and crafts’ cupboard to begin with)
  • Wiped a runny nose without throwing up afterwards

I could have made a list of things I’ve done that mean I’m still acting like a childish fool, but that would have taken a lot longer! 

Anyway, happy birthday to me and my sister, Fiona!  Cheers to another year of sometimes acting our age and sometimes acting our shoe size.

Hello! Quick question that's totally off topic. Do you know how to make your site mobile friendly? My site looks weird when browsing from my iphone 4. I'm trying to find a template or plugin that might be able to resolve this
problem. If you have any recommendations, please share. Thanks!
