Getting old

January 15th, 2009 • Posted in Random Stuff |

That’s me.  Dark fantasy and horror writer: check.  Old git: check.  Here’s what the letter from the consultant said about my shoulder X-ray:

‘… shows signs of slight bone deterioration between your collarbone and shoulderblade.’

In other words, as she told me informally, ‘normal for age’.  So if I ever want to take up squash (used to play), badminton (ditto), or golf (do me a favour!), I’ll be facing surgery first.  Meanwhile, I whinge and moan about getting older (4o on July 28th), take painkillers, and hope it doesn’t get any worse.

But to cheer me up … Masterchef tonight!
