as a 40 something year old :( Yup tomorrow is the big day ..or not really , another day at school working to tell the truth.I certainly wont be telling the pupils my age..not that I ever hide it or am ashamed, worried, or fed up about it ..more bewildered..how the heck did I get here so soon??! I certainly don't feel very much older ,(or wiser). Inside i still feel the same, sound the same and in my head look the same. Its only sometimes when i catch sight of myself in the mirror and wonder who that short fat old woman is :D I should really have felt a bit older this week when last last of the teachers who taught me retired. She started at the school the same time I started as a pupil in 1971. Quite a few of the teachers left now were babies or not born then!
So I wake up tomorrow as a 50 year old. I have prepared myself a little, tonight i made sure that there wasn't a grey hair in sight!................................for now
