11 Signs that you're becoming a grown up


1. The moment you walk in the door, pyjamas go on

2. Staying in > Going out

3. Kids cereal is now frowned upon. Cocopops and Cookie Crisp definitely not nutritious enough.. we now eat avocado on toast, smoked salmon bagels or soy porridge in the mornings

4. You get excited over a candle

 5. Snow ain't fun anymore because walking to work in a blizzard is your idea of hell (actually.. it is hell as I did it last week!)

6. What do you mean, I have to pay for gas and electric? I thought you just pressed a button and that's that?!

7. Similarly, why is there no milk in the fridge? Why doesn't it magically appear like it does at my Mum's house?!

8. Say goodbye to the 6-8 weeks of freedom, more commonly known as 'Summer Holidays'

9. When we see friends, we call it a coffee date. We order soy cappuccino's, skinny latte's and americano's because apparently this is what we do now..

10. It's ok to treat yourself, cos let's face it, who else can you rely on?!

11. You don't give a sh*t about what people think of you any more because you've realised that life is too short, and at the end of the day, the only person you need to please is yourself

Aha I love this! Agree with everything on it ;) Getting old isn't all bad! And I certainly cherish every night in now and would swap it for a night out any day! xox

Sam said...

Nah, it's alright really ;) thank you xxx

This list it so accurate. Ahh Grown-ups *hides from responsibility under duvet*
These days, my candle and blanket collection have replaced my pokemon card one.
I feel like 'Jogging for pleasure' should be on the list too, oh why, oh why do we do this to ourselves.

Had to walk to work in fluffies of snow this morning because the tube station was closed. Not impressed, its cold and wet!

Yes, yes, yes!! literally reading this nodding along to all of it. My "i'm so old" moment was when I was packing for New York and chose practical outfits over anything fashionable. Who even am I?? ;)

Hehe I love all of these - they are so true! I made a specific trip to the one place near me that serves avocado feta and chilli on toast this morning, not something I would have done as a teenager! (And it was delishhh!) x

I've never actually tried it so maybe I should! Thanks for stopping by :) xx

Victoria said...

Lol, I feel/do the majority of these and I'm 16. Sigh, what's life? (*Currently writing this in my pajamas at 3:52pm. No shame.*)

Sam said...

Hahaa I think that's brilliant! Good for you ;) xx

Nicole said...

This post is so on point! I was reading it and nodding along. Getting into pyjamas within 5 seconds of arriving home is definitely my favourite, alongside buying moutons of new candles and having cosy nights in because who wants to go outside in the cold wearing a mini skirt?? I'm so happy you wrote this because I honestly thought that some of these things were just me!
