27 and counting …

The only proof that Craig wore tights
The only proof that Craig wore tights.

As the clock hit midnight and hair metal beat its way out of the speakers, Craig turned 27.
But he is not an 80s rock god, so by 1 am he was sleeping heavily, still clad in a black beater and leopard print leggings. His wig a straggly animal on a chair upstairs.
This morning he woke, curled into my side and groaned “Twenty Seven. That’s almost Thirty”.
And so, I made him pancakes.

When I met Craig he was 17. He’s now 27. I am ever so lucky.

    Awwww, Dave is 27 too and refuses to say it's anything but "mid 20s" still. Looks like you had a fantastic time and I love your costume!

    Kahu – yep! 10 years as of 15 July to be exact (6:15pm to be weirdly precise).Kat – I think he can get away with it until he's 28. Then he's definitely late 20s! The only thing I had to buy for my costume was the GNR tee. It was a little worrying. But I don't wear the rest all at once!
