42 is middle aged

Crap I hope not. I turned 42 last Monday! Youngest child is only 15 weeks too.

Speak for yourself!

StillSmallVoiceOfCalm Sat 20-Aug-16 21:32:28

Middle aged is worse than old

Much. Much. Worse.

I think you are confusing 42 with 82.

Propertyquandry Sat 20-Aug-16 21:32:45

I hadn't even had my DD by 42!

citybushisland Sat 20-Aug-16 21:32:59

No, at least I hope not, I'm 46, I don't feel old.

elQuintoConyo Sat 20-Aug-16 21:33:00

Really? Oh shit! I've got 6 months to go...

My mind is 23 though grin

JennyBunn Sat 20-Aug-16 21:33:06

Oy! I'm 42 and don't consider myself old.

Or middle-aged <glares at Need>

EddieStobbart Sat 20-Aug-16 21:33:09

Only if your name is Bagpuss. If not, I bet you are just gorgeous smile

StillSmallVoiceOfCalm Sat 20-Aug-16 21:33:18

I'm sure I was 28 last time I checked

EmpressOfTheSevenOceans Sat 20-Aug-16 21:33:35

No it fucking isn't!

I've nearly finished being 42 & it's been a fabulous year.

lulucappuccino Sat 20-Aug-16 21:33:45

Well in to middle age. Not old though.

TheScottishPlay Sat 20-Aug-16 21:34:04

44 here, enjoy your last 2 years of youth.

Did you get your will ready?

Who gets the cat photos?

Penfold007 Sat 20-Aug-16 21:34:15

It's a quarter of a century away from retirement so not old in any way

TheRealAdaLovelace Sat 20-Aug-16 21:34:18

'middle aged' yes. What you need OP, is a nice flowery frock and a hand knitted white cardi and a poodle perm.
Then you will be sorted.....grin

Just you op.

Musicaltheatremum Sat 20-Aug-16 21:34:22

I'm 53 and still young.

HelsinkiLights Sat 20-Aug-16 21:34:29

Don't be daft, 42 is young!

StillSmallVoiceOfCalm Sat 20-Aug-16 21:34:33

It's not happening until tomorrow. I think I should put it off a bit.
