Ah crap

! This post hasn't been updated in over a year. A lot can change in a year including my opinion and the amount of naughty words I use. There's a good chance that there's something in what's written below that someone will find objectionable. That's fine, if I tried to please everybody all of the time then I'd be a Lib Dem (remember them?) and I'm certainly not one of those. The point is, I'm not the kind of person to try and alter history in case I said something in the past that someone can use against me in the future but just remember that the person I was then isn't the person I am now nor the person I'll be in a year's time.

It’s my birthday today and I’m no longer a 20-something.  Thirty years ago today I shuffled onto the mortal coil.

It’s a year for special birthdays in my family – my 30th, #1 son’s 10th, brother-in-law’s 25th and grandad-in-law’s 80th.

I guess I’m now officially a grumpy old git.  As opposed to a grumpy young one, that is.

If you’re on Facebook, you could send me a free gift.

    Happy birthday dude.

    My 30s were quite quiet, well, after all the fun I had in my 20s, anything would be quiet.

    My only advice for a novice 30-something is avoid serious beatings, they only end in tears 😉

    Cheers. Mrs Sane bought me a replacement wedding ring after mine fell off and got lost. An unfortunate side-effect of losing weight. Anyway, the ring was too big so we went to get a different size. Unfortunately, they don’t have them in my size so we’ve got to wait while it gets ordered.

    This afternoon will be spent going to get a dog. I don’t want one – we’ve got 4 kids to look after already – but Mrs Sane is determined to get one anyway. I might follow the suggestion made by one of my colleagues yesterday and get her to sign an agreement saying that she’ll walk it even when it’s cold and wet and that she’ll clean up after it. Won’t be worth the paper it’s written on of course but I’m old now so I’m allowed to be pointlessly grumpy.

    You are only a trainee grumpy and must wait to join the ranks at 50.

    I had fab Thirties, but then again I was not living under this current Junta

    Thanks for the birthday wishes everyone. Now I’ve just got think of a way of getting back #1 son for spending the whole day taking the piss telling me I’m old.

    Happy birthday! I’m genuinely surprised to discover you’re only thirty, but this may be because I wish I was. I hope you had a good day.
