And so... I discovered this week that I probably have a receeding gumline too.
This discovery is part of a long line of signs that I have noticed over the past 18 months, that is signalling to me that, well, I'm growing old. I am about to hit my big 4-0 this year, and indeed, while in spirit I don't feel middle-aged (OMG, did I even use this word on myself?), my body is certainly showing me signs of wear and tear.
