Are we growing old too quickly? 27, feeling a teenager and behaving like a middle age woman…is the young fogey generation taking over?

17 Apr

Reading the paper a few days ago, I noticed an article that made me smile but made me think at the same time. Prince William and Kate Middleton came back from their skiing holiday last week and what did they do next? Went home to enjoy dinner together and they watched some DVDs…ok we are talking about royalty….but I wouldn’t say they are becoming middle aged just for a night in!!

The article was mentioning some warning signs about becoming a young fogey …let’s analyse them.

You are into Pinterest, and especially proud of that board in which you posted your favourite Le Creuset pots.

Hang on, I am into Pinterest now, my husband bought me a set of Le Creuset pots for my birthday and I did not post them on Facebook or Twitter (didn’t know about Pinterest in August)…but actually I did send that notorious picture of my new pots to my best friend…( I have the blue one, by the way!)

You can’t decide what to do for your birthday this year. If you want a weekend away you want to be walking distance to restaurants but not too close to clubs and drunk teenagers (FAIR ENOUGH).

Probably you will end up having a dinner with friends, take pictures of the food you ate (WHAT IS WRONG WITH THAT????) and go home, have a drink and pass out on the sofa (NO I DON’T!)

Funny enough we will go in Italy for my birthday, on my parents house on the Italian Riviera, nice town with lots of nice bars and restaurants…but far away from clubs…who cares anymore? Rather stuff myself at dinner!

When shopping, you find yourself thinking that everything is too short. I don’t normally wear skirts so this problem does not affect me, but I do find more difficult buying stuff. I’d like to wear shorts, but I try them on and I think? Is that appropriate? Walking around town bare legs? What about if I can’t see but the cellulite is showing? Will people look at me in a funny way? Anyway it’s freezing in England so no way!!! Mmm….am I really getting old?

Before Christmas I wanted to change my hair, desperately, needed some changes after had my hair long and plain for so many years, wanted a long bob…did it…I was so happy.

But after a few days I felt the hairstyle makes me look more grown up, or just a bit middle aged. And I even felt more awkward last week when my best friend took out of her bag her camera with the pictures of us in Miami for my Bachelorette party…my heart sank, I miss my long hair!!! Not keen on extensions…too expensive and too Essex for my style…let’s just wait for my hair to grown.

My ideal weekend? Years ago was aperitif out, light dinner somewhere, and out clubbing until 3am, at least.

Now, have a drink somewhere, high heels or not? Mostly is not because we have to walk around and I cannot walk on high heels very well. Dinner somewhere? Great! I always drink and eat too much so as soon as we finish, my husband usually says: – Shall we go for another drink? Normally 10.30pm…my reply can vary, depending how cold it is and which shoes I am wearing.

If it’s freezing and probably I wear flat shoes: Not sure baby, if we go somewhere close to the car ok, if not let’s go back, it’s too cold.

If it’s not that cold and I wear high heels: Not sure baby, my feet hurt, can’t walk far and you will probably make me driving back…let’s go back, we have a drink at home.

Am I really growing old? Hope not!

Back in business, into my kitchen! Surrounded by Hello Kitty Easter eggs and very soon from my family!

I finally started to feel better, my cold has finally abandoned me and my husband with his burnt arm and hand is getting better as well, shame now he has man flu…my fault apparently….MEEEEEEEEEN

By the way I am so glad that Kim is getting over this problem, and I am sure he is never going to use petrol again to lit the bonfire after this accident, his arm speaks for himself

I think we really need and holiday, an Italian one, I cannot wait to go back home on Friday, spend time with my family, go shopping in Milan, see my friends, and go back to eat normally (I finally lost that famous kg I was going on about, but just for the stress!) Now I’m back in the kitchen cooking away and being happy, do you want to see my latest creations?

Salmon fillet with crème fraiche, breadcrumbs and lime with green peas puree with crème fraiche and Thai green curry paste with chestnut mushrooms cooked in honey gorgonzola and brie cheese….what a wonderful dinner!

Yesterday morning I made Frangelico (Italian hazelnut liqueur) tiramisu to go for dinner to my mother in law…WOW it was good!

As you can see everyone know about my passion for Hello Kitty….only Hello Kitty Easter eggs for me so far, my friend Shonda will be happy as well!!! 🙂

And what about my latest discovery? While reading Grazia I came across an article about Pinterest…check me out if you wish!
