Just as well you added that, if I'd thought I was getting a compliment I'd have been just insuferably smug, good save.
You're right, of course, 26 isn't as old as, say, 36, which isn't as old as 46, etc etc, I'm not like 80 or anything, but at the same time the way so much time has passed, the idea that things that seem recent are a full decade ago or more, people who were born the year I started secondary school are now 14 which is so bizarre, for instance, the first years from when I was in sixth year left school ages ago (I'm aware that for people not from scotland that will be kind of meaningless) and it's only older I'm going to get. And I'm going to start looking older, but not in a god way, like as someone who's never been very happy with how I look I definitely feel I've passed the point where you could concievably improve a little once you get older into the area where it's all just going to get worse. Is that just a girl thing maybe? I don't know.
That is way to maudlin a message for your birthday, I'm kind of glad I fell asleep before I got round to replying to the thread last night, at least I didn't ruin your big day. You're still the second place forum baby to us, so you'll be getting your cheek pinched too. I have a name like someone's middle aged aunt, so I might as well act like one too.
