You simply cant be bothered listening to the hard luck stories of anyone under 30 who has had to suffer the indignities of....college, an underpaid unglamorous first job or two, sharing a house and not enough people telling them they are brilliant since they left home.

I like to keep fit and I can't shrug off injuries any more like I could in my twenties. I sprained my ankle in September and it's still f*cked.

I also catch myself thinking from time to time that I'm passed the half way mark to the average age to die and that 35 years seems like a terrifyingly short amount of time left. I always used to think I'd never like to live forever but a good few thousand years wouldn't be so bad....

You're constantly looking back nostalgically at the past. Deaths of people like Maradona or Jonah Lomu hurt more than they should. It feels like a bit of your prime has gone with them.

Having a conversation in work last week about going on holidays back in the day and bringing travellers cheques and two girls at the lunch table asked what they were as they had never even heard of them

When you go for run and 5 minutes in your watch prompts ‘do you want to record a leisurely stroll’

When bending down to tie your shoelaces you look around to see if there's anything else to be done whilst you're there.

Forgetting the simple things, like pocketing your housekeys before leaving the house. And lately, my hands seize up in pain doing tasks I have always before done with ease.
