Or turning into a aul hag..............

So today I decided the Eyebrows needed a good pluck (I've got a great little Ikea lamp that shows all the strays)

Anyway, I found 3.
THREE big curly black hairs! at an inch long! just sat, growing there (smug bastards) from my chin and neck. (Neck wtf?)
And I'm going grey!

Do you have any signs, ???

Every time I take a close look around the hairline (for zits), I find my hair is turning increasingly white.

Except the odd black hair in my moustache and 'beard' which are both becoming increasingly luxuriant.

My eyebrows are thinning, but the remaining hairs are curly and long and some are white.

I've spotted my first white eyelashes - I didn't even know eyelashes went white

Littlebatcalledlucille Tue 21-Feb-17 15:50:51

Oh the Lip hairs? yep found them too!
Are you zit popper too? I only found the one on my chin because there was a big blackhed!

I have said "oooh isn't it mild" about 50 times over the last few days!!

Applebite Tue 21-Feb-17 15:51:48

I bent down to pick something up and an inadvertent "ooof" escaped.

where the fuck did that come from? it can fuck right off!

Littlebatcalledlucille Tue 21-Feb-17 15:51:57

Petty, i wish mine would 'thin' bloody bushes!

BasicBetty Tue 21-Feb-17 15:52:11

Yep - I've got the chin hairs!

My other (non-physical) signs are:

Not recognising anything in the charts

Not embracing new technology

Hating crowded, noisy bars with nowhere to sit.

My DP called me Dickie Davies the other day, because my side bits are turning white.
I'm also getting jowls, jowls fgs, it only seems like yesterday I was buying Donny Osmond records.

Littlebatcalledlucille Tue 21-Feb-17 15:53:09

Apple, I said that yesterday! I's a bit nippy today!

greenmidgetgems Tue 21-Feb-17 15:53:33

Long curly hairs in my eyebrows and on my chin

Wearing comfortable granny pants

Wanting a wee cup of tea ALL the time

Judging people on their lack of appropriate footwear / outwear in the winter or lack of summer hat / suncream in the summer

Explaining to my DSD who ET is or that Will Smith is Jaden Smith's dad

Quite liking some of the clothes in Bon Marche - practical and comfy!

TisapityshesaGeordie Tue 21-Feb-17 15:53:47

I am becoming rabidly anti-social and very, very grumpy.

Littlebatcalledlucille Tue 21-Feb-17 15:53:53

Betty, All of those!!!!

Littlebatcalledlucille Tue 21-Feb-17 15:55:27

I saw a policeman and thought he looked young the other day

My eyebrows have started growing really long. I have to keep cutting them back! On the other hand my eyelashes are getting shorter and thinner, they were the one "pretty" thing I had about me, long, dark, thick lashes and now they're gone. My mustache makes my teenage sons jealous. Basically hair is leaving the places it should be and popping up in places it shouldn't.

I used to love the "Now" albums as a teenager.

Picked up "Now 95" in Waitrose on Sunday, whilst queuing to pay. Could not have told you what a single one of the songs was, and hardly any of the artists!

maddiemookins16mum Tue 21-Feb-17 15:56:20

Oh and I do that tutting thing with a slow shake of the head (just like my mum did).
And, and, there was a time when The Brits (or whatever they were called in 1986) was the highlight if the pop music year for me. Now I've only heard of about 5% of the turns. Bring back Nick Kershaw and the like I say.

spankhurst Tue 21-Feb-17 15:56:29

I do the oof thing too. I have a white eyebrow or two. I literally have NO idea about the charts whatsoever, and no interest in it. I have about 8 stubborn, coarse chin and lip hairs which I pluck out almost daily. My roots are looking suspiciously -grey- ashy.

Littlebatcalledlucille Tue 21-Feb-17 15:56:30

Lastqueen! policemen, bus drivers, doctors!

greenmidgetgems Tue 21-Feb-17 15:56:30

* I saw a policeman and thought he looked young the other day*

This! Doctors, nurses, dentists, police etc all looking about 12.

I saw a Dr at the hospital and really wanted to ask him if he was on work experience from school. He did not look old enough to be a grown up.
I didn't ask him obviously.

Ruddy student doctors asking if I still have periods.
