And I want to moan. I'm sitting here with a shitty cold and feeling distinctly miserable.

ds is watching crappy Derren whatsisname which is boring and dd is asleep.

What happened to my life?

I bet you are not as old as me.

Happy Birthday wine

I think I am usual.

I'm 50 today. Funnily enough I don't mind being 50. I didn't mind being 40 either.

My mum says 80 is the difficult one, because you might not make 90 and if your body does your brain won't and vice versa.

A cheerful bod is my mum grin

<snogs MrsdeVere>

You gave me too much wine earlier. I've nearly finished the bottle and it doesn't mix well with Nurofen Cold and Flu blush

Happpy Birthday. Maybe the best is yet to come. Maybe you are will be old and wise!

Happy birthday to you
Happy birthday to yooou

(I was just sitting here thinking of starting a thread "AIBU to wish Maryz Happy Birthday, especially cos she needs cheering up"... But it felt a bit cheeky... blush )

Well look on the bright side. You're not as old as me and whilst I might not have a cold I have got the most frightful flatulence, I'm banished to the kitchen and nobody wants to be my friend!

Happy birthday MaryZ!

I decided last birthday that there wasn't a chance of me growing older gracefully feck it I'm going down kicking and screaming with a large glass of red in my hand. In my head I am forever young blush.

Happy Birthday wine

MaryZezItsOnlyJustNovember Fri 16-Nov-12 21:50:39

Oh, lufferly, thank you all.

<feels all warm and snuggly inside which could be a fever starting >

You must be very old Badger.

Self-indulgent, attention-seeking threads are obviously the way to go grin

My typing is getting a tad wobbly. I wonder if I'm pissed [ponders]. I suspect I might be.

RustyBear Fri 16-Nov-12 21:52:07

You're not as old as me!

Fwiw, I felt very old when I hit 50, but once I'd got past that milestone, age began to matter less. I'm now 56 and still feel the same age as I did 6 years ago (but then I've been on Mumsnet ever since 2006, so maybe time has stood still....)

usualsuspect3 Fri 16-Nov-12 21:52:45

I'm 53 grin

bigheartedwoman Fri 16-Nov-12 21:52:54

Passes Maryz [flowers] just cos of you xxx

RustyBear Fri 16-Nov-12 21:53:21

Happy Birthday by the way. thanks

Have some wine though it sounds like you don't really need any more...

usualsuspect3 Fri 16-Nov-12 21:53:50

I did have a massive wobble about being 50, but now I don't care.

juule Fri 16-Nov-12 21:54:37

You don't know me but I think you are wonderful Maryz smile
So a very a happy birthday to you.'re not as old as me grin
Good grief that rhymes shock

flow4 Fri 16-Nov-12 21:55:25

BluelightsAndSirens Fri 16-Nov-12 21:55:41
