Things that make me feel all grown up….
Growing tomatoes on my balcony and then enjoying the fresh redness in a nice salad,
Whilst making that salad, preferring to listen to the soothing sounds of radio 2 rather than the random noise of radio 1,
And to that salad, I might add, one of the 3 different types of cheese that now seem to be in my fridge,
Whilst standing in the shoes from Clarks that I voluntarily bought,
And looking around at the little apartment I rent and seeing it all neat and tidy because I am definitely house proud,
Not just house proud, proud of my clothes and appearance that each Sunday I do the weekly ironing,
So that I look smart for the proper job I do,
That earns enough to pay taxes,
If that’s not growing up, I don’t know what is.
