ARE YOUR 30S THE AGE FOR ‘GROW­ING UP’? I feel like 30 is the age you’re ex­pected to have your life to­gether ...

It’s half­way through the year and I’m left won­der­ing where the months have gone. This hap­pens pretty much ev­ery year. I get to July, I stop and I re-eval­u­ate where I am, what I’ve achieved so far and what I have left to ac­com­plish be­fore Christ­mas hits us again.

But this year is dif­fer­ent be­cause I have just hit the ripe ol’ age of 29.

I know what you’re think­ing, “29 isn’t old”, but 29 is only a year away from 30 and I feel like 30 is the age you’re ex­pected to have your life to­gether (or at least be good at pre­tend­ing you do).

Your 20s are for dis­cov­er­ing what you want from life and for hav­ing fun but then it’s time to grow up when you hit the big 3-0.

Be­cause of this I’m mak­ing a few changes and un­for­tu­nately that means this will be my last ar­ti­cle.

It makes me sad to put that in writ­ing but life is a changin’ and my re­spon­si­bil­ity level has risen. I have a mort­gage, I have a fur baby and life is get­ting busier by the minute – so the rare spare time I do have is go­ing to have to be fo­cused on my ra­dio work life.

It’s been fun putting my thoughts and sto­ries in print for you but as they say, all good things must come to an end.

See you around the streets. xx
