Slippers and Cocoa

Am I middle-aged if I am happy that my weekend holds nothing more exciting than a haircut and Spiderman 3 at the cinema?

Not so long ago, I would be out twice a week, in Edinburgh's clubs until 3am and rarely in bed before 4am.

But nowadays, 6am is when I get up for work, not when I head for bed after a weekend of partying.

That's not strictly true - next weekend I'll be in Skye for a stag night, and in June I'll be in Dublin for a wedding party before hosting our own housewarming soiree.

But those nights are now the exception rather than the norm.

Which is just as well, as I don't think my body or bank balance would cope if I was out twice a week nowadays.

True!

I am now considered the sober and sane one at stag parties. ;-)

ha, if that makes you sound middle aged god knows how i sound then!

i'm much more content with a dvd and a pizza of a weekend, i only go out once a month. can't tolerate much more than that.
