Help...I'm turning into my mother...
Ever since the New Year, I have had a niggling feeling that the slow morphing process that would turn me into a proper middle-aged person, was beginning. It's quite a worry. Here is the evidence:
1/ Instead of litre upon litre of diet coke, my usual drink is now a cup of tea (I was never a tea-drinker).
2/ It's now a good thing to put my pyjamas on at 5pm.
3/ I frequently go to bed the same time as, or shortly after, my 10 year old son.
4/ I plan our meals days, sometimes weeks, in advance, and have a list stored on my mobile phone. I originally started doing it as a money-saving exercise, so that I could run thru what we already had in the cupboards in my head and plan meals to suit, instead of shopping aimlessly and wasting lots of cash. However, we've not been that badly off for money lately, & I'm still doing it...
5/ I don't have a clue who or what music is in the charts right now. When did I stop listening to the radio?
6/ I'm obsessed with checking the Sky news website every 5 minutes.
7/ I use coupons in the supermarket. I never used to give a s**t about coupons!
8/ I vacuum every day.
9/ Sadly, I'm attending more funerals.
10/ My son considers me an embarrassment.
So what do you think, people? Am I a proper mumsy-type now, or do you think there's any hope of pulling it back, and making myself appear a cool yummy mummy?
