The Age Wheel
When did that happen ? I had been putting off doing some admin until I couldn't put it off any longer, it just had to be done. It was pretty straight forward, name, address, date of birth that kind of thing. So I began and everything was running smoothly until it came to date of birth DAY tick MONTH tick YEAR .......it was a wheel of years so I began to scroll down and down, BIG shock it suddenly dawned on me that I was no longer part of the 21 st century or so it seemed. I was no longer planning what to have for my 21st birthday present from my parents, who I would meet and spend 30 + years with, which house would be my first purchase, would I have children, on and on until I reached my date of birth and realisation quickly followed that I had done all those things and I was entering an age where toys of my childhood were now appearing at retro Sunday fairs, my era of music had become cool nostalgia.... I have to admit it was a shock. ! I knew , of course I knew but nothing hammers it home quite like that ' Age Wheel '
