I don't want to.

I really don't want to.
Not one bit.
Please don't make me.
I don't WANT TO.

But it's going to happen, as with all that is inevitable, it will come to pass.

I could try and stop it, but I think messing with time is a trick for the Doctor, and the Doctor alone. I'd love a TARDIS. Then it wouldn't happen.

Or maybe it would? 
Perhaps I wouldn't know it because I am in a different time zone or on another planet. 
Or maybe it would happen faster, or slower. But yes, it probably would still happen.

So, there is no escaping it.
No hiding under the covers and hoping it will go away.
No stamping on it and hoping it's dead.
Not even running away.
Nothing will stop it.

Nope, nothing.

So, like so many before me, I will take it on the chin and let it happen.
Maybe I'll embrace it.
But not just yet.
For now, I will simply accept that it is happening.
Whether I like it or not.

For after Thursday my friends, I will be a woman in her 30s.

Oh crap.


  1. Oh to be woman in her 30's again!! Enjoy it, its not all that bad... 40 hurts thou......!!

  2. @Frankie P
    Thank you! I still don't feed much older than 20, so I'm sure 30 can't be that bad!

  3. This made me laugh... it's hitting 31 that really hurts - then you know there's no turning back! I know what you mean about still feeling 20, my 21st feels like yesterday.. happy birthday for thursday :)

  4. @MaryM
    Thank you. I'll look forward to turning 31 then! I can't really imagine ever really feeling all that much older.

  5. Oh you wrote this so well! I barely remember turning 30 it was so long ago!

  6. Ahhh bless you. And Happy Birthday. I like my thirties the best. Much more content and confident than ay other decade so far.

    Hope the Doctor comes in his Tardis tough!

  7. @Here come the girlsOoh, I hadn't thought about that! I'd be very happy if David Tennant turned up in the Tardis. I'm looking forward to seeing what this decade has to offer!
