Ten things they forgot to tell you about being a grown up.

1. Eating a whole cake to yourself will damned near impossible. But you will do it.
2. Spots will consistently appear on your face and body, not just when you are a teenager.

3. You will never quite be sure if you need to clean your mattress, or how you would go about it if you did. Same with your duvet.
4. Potato smilies will make you just as happy and they did when you were 5.
 5. As will Disney movies.

6. You will feel a genuine sense of achievement when you have cleaned the oven. After 8 months of putting it off.
7. Vegetables will actually be eaten through choice.
8. You will very suddenly realise you are not cool. You will actually start to doubt you ever were.

9. Random hairs will grow from places and you will not be sure how or why.

10. Your pay-check is not actually that much money when you have rent, electricity, water, gas, internet, council tax and gin to buy.
