1. Theres ALWAYS cleaning to be done
  2. You buy house plants then forget their name, and try to google how long they might need watering
  3. You look forward to sitting down to ’10 minutes peace and quiet’
  4. You can’t believe how expensive food is
  5. Emptying the bin is the most vile task on earth
  6. You buy yourself flowers. Just because.
  7. You see toddlers with iPads and think ‘back in my day…..’
  8. You buy clothes depending on how much wear you will realistically get out of them
  9. The fact that 2010 was 7 YEARS AGO (!!!!!) makes you feel approx 90 years old
  10. Running a bath is now one of life’s little luxuries.
  11. You actually get ‘real’ emails and not just spam
  12. Things now have their own ‘dedicated space’ and not just you know,ย everywhere
  13. And yet you still text your mum, asking whats better for a headache, paracetamol or ibuprofen?


Are there any other ways you know you’ve become an adult? ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Man so many of those things are to real! haha

    • I’m loving buying flowers weekly too! Its like a little pick me up xx

  • When i have to make my own appointments im reminded im an adult ๐Ÿ™ and im so bad at making them. I miss the days when mum would take me to the doctors or the dentist haha x

    • Me too, I tend to put them off until I HAVE to go! xx

  • I love this! I still can’t believe that 2010 was seven year ago, it does not feel that long ago at all! Great post xx

    Haha I love this! Literally yes to every point – I have so many house plants and I don’t think I know what any of them actually are!

  • This is so cute and too real! Honestly I don’t think there will ever be a point where I stop asking my mom for advice!

  • Oh my gosh I still have to get used to 2010 being a whopping seven years ago!! I loved this post, very true! I think paying bills and getting post gives me one of those adulting feelings haha

    • Oh yes, bills are never fun! We have underestimated adulthood haha xx

  • Pahaha YES to all of these! 10 minutes peace and quiet is actually my idea of dreamy nowadays, and I can’t even comprehend the small children with phones and ipads. But then on the flip side I did text my dad asking if he could book my car in for a service…haha. Sophie xxx


  • OMG these are all so relatable! Especially 1 & 2!

    • I’m the worst at forgetting what plants actually are!

  • Haha it’s funny but these things are making me want to really try and move out and have my own little place to be a proper adult!

    • Girl, I’m sure it will happen soon for you! Enjoy it while you can haha xx

  • Soph Cullen

    hahah loved this, SO true, me and my other half have arguments about the bloody bin haha xx


    • Haha glad its not just us! I give him it to do and do the washing instead! xx

  • My “adult” moments happen when I go to any store and try to redeem coupons. I need to just invest in a coupon book to put in my purse or something! xo

  • Can so relate to this.
