A friend just posted on Facebook that she has bought a washing machine for the first time. She is eight months pregnant and married, but buying the washing machine is the thing that felt grown up to her.

I've had a similar-ish thing this week myself - a first kiss in my own house while pretty sober... I think it was the location that did it. Generally the first kiss has been in a bar, at a party, or occasionally at a rented place I'm living, but doing this in my own house felt weirdly different.

What's made you feel grown up recently?

Ha, yes! I can remember the first time that I was treated like an adult. I went on a holiday with a bunch of juggling friends when I was 17 and they were all in their mid twenties or older, some had kids. I was treated as an equal by grown ups for several days... It was quite weird. It's still strange today sometimes. What's weirder is when I am given authority in a situation over people who I consider more experienced than me, and who are definitely older than me. I've had a 'promotion' so I'm now a line-manger for a small team of lecturers... I wonder if that one will ever stop feeling strange? I think that's something you get used to rather than it going away! smile.gif
