On being made to feel old!

Just a quick post in the midst of Christmas goings on!

Three times in the past three days people have commented on the radio station I have been listening to ...'you do like listening to the oldies don't you?'. Three different people - 2 at work, Penny at home - on different occasions. And the music I have been listening to? Magic FM, mostly 80's I admit! But that was only yesterday, wasn't it!?

Has anyone made you feel old recently?
Me in approximately 1983, which I am sure is only a couple of years ago!

YES, that was definitely only a few years ago!!! I've had a year of feeling old & am in the midst of a blog post about it, so I had to laugh when I saw your post today! But, it's just a fleeting thought - if the 80s were just a few years ago, we are definitely NOT old!

Lovely photo, Becky! And since I had my second child (at a rather advanced age) in 1983, you seem quite young to me! (And no, most of the time, I don't FEEL old, even if I am.)

I'm with you, magic isn't for oldies lol.

That's a really pretty picture of you :) I'm a big believer that you should pick an age and stick to it ... I'm 23 (yes I know I've been married for 25 years lol) but I've made sure all my friends know I'm 23 too lol

Super picture of you and the 80's do feel like it was just a couple of years ago. It's funny all the younger people we know are now listening to the music we used to listen to. :)

I would swear it was only a couple of years ago too!

My younger sister is dating a much younger man (much!) He spent Thanksgiving with us and fit in beautifully, the age thoughts slide away until he hugged me goodbye, thanked me and called me ma'am :/ Young and well mannered!
