The Signs of Ageing

Two things happened this week that made me feel like a 70 year old woman.



The first is that I purchased my very first wheely shopper, pictured below.Isn't it just sex on wheels though? If you look very closely, you will see that it has a cylindrical side pocket for accomodation of a walking stick!



In my defence, I bought it as a convenient way to lug tons of toys around the primary schools that I work in. I thought the children would find the ladybirds appealing, and hoped it might earn me the nickname "The Ladybird Lady". I'll let you know.



The second geriatric incident was when I lost my bicycle glove. I lamented to my friend on the phone how I am always losing things like that and will have to buy yet another pair.



It wasn't until several HOURS later, that I discovered upon looking at my reflection in a mirror, that it was in fact caught in my hair.



If I'm like this now, I dread to think what I'll be like when I really am a crazy old woman.

Excellent!! I love your wheelie shopper and am very tempted to get one myself. For any of your other readers who are so inspired, may I suggest having a go at the wheelie shopper quiz: http://www.annewitton.org.uk/wheelie-shopper-selector.php
