    22 Signs You're Middle-Aged Before Your Time


    1. Your idea of hell is going to a club.

    It's just too damn loud.

    2. Because you’d much rather go to a cosy quiet pub.

    3. Your dream Friday night probably involves staying in on your sofa watching boxsets with some snacks.


    Ideally under a slanket.

    4. So when your friends text to ask if you want to go out you don’t even bother to make elaborate excuses.

    "Sorry I can't come out to that bar, I've got five episodes of How to Get Away with Murder to finish."

    5. Because you’d just rather have a cup of tea than drink shots.

    6. And if you are going to drink it has got to be some nice wine.

    Because you know cheap booze is just going to give you a worse hangover.

    7. But you don't like to get hungover anyway because you see the day as wasted if you don’t do something productive before 9am.

    8. Because you actually enjoy getting up early on the weekends.

    9. And you’re slightly obsessed with farmers' markets.

    16. And you're really passionate about candles.

    17. But you’re not happy unless you know your house is clean.
