A really special tree. All by itself on an exposed little hill. This angle shows the impact of a few too many storms and a couple of direct lightning strikes. Definitely much bigger and a little more symmetrical when we first moved here a couple of decades ago.
Having said that I bet the tree is saying something similar about me. Not quite the same human than he was 20 years ago.
Definitely a bit heavier. My old baggy goalkeeper top has become a trendy skin tight one. Let’s say it’s all more muscle…. 🙀
But that made me think about other stuff which has changed over those 20 years.
Hair….🤯 (maybe the two above are the cause of that….)
Stopped drinking alcohol
Stopped drinking coffee
My dress sense has improved (did I really wear that stuff)
Body has decided to disagree with lots of stuff I liked 20 years ago (caffeine, dairy, garlic, oats, baked beans, raw onions, gluten, spicy stuff, liquorice, fizzy drinks, apples, peanuts)
Over those 20 years they clearly have been making mobile phone screens and book lettering much smaller and more blurred
Memory has gone the same way as my eyesight
Seemingly can’t get out of a chair now without making audible noises
Can now seem to understand what the Tellytubbies and Clangers say
Now older than many world leaders
20 years ago I was a bit of a computer expert and now even the TV remote control is beyond me
20 years ago I would spend hours setting up my mobile to be the perfect fit for my lifestyle and now I just hand it to my son to sort it out
Developed a liking for beige things
I’ve become much more Homer Simpson than Bart
Can now get into a One Legged Pigeon position…..
Ok that last one I can get into the position but there are no guarantees I can get out of the pose. So surprise surprise, in those 20 years I’ve got older. Older yes. Bigger yes. Creakier yes. Wiser – not entirely sure……
