Those little aches and pains that you seem to come and go as you get older.


Finding the word 'oof' is now a regular in your repetoire, mainly when getting up off the floor, or a settee.

Kinky.

If you use "should of", "would of" or "could of", you are a moron.

Never being able to organise nights out as mates can't get babysitters.
Filling in an application form and realising it was 20 years this year since I did my GCSEs
Getting my mortgage statement from the bank and realising I'm over halfway through the 25 year term.

There's 3 from a long list.

You are as old as you feel! I know of some people who never stop complaining about minor ailments. Apart from suffering from tinnitus and carpal tunnel syndrome, I am still active at aged 64, working as a landscape gardener as well as hiking every week. Very lucky really. I once overheard an elderly lady say that you have to accept the changes in life to get on with it. Vanity is one huge problem for some, especially trying to come to terms with baldness and wrinkles .

Taking up home brewing as a hobby.

And in general, getting less excited about things but also getting less disappointed by things (please refrain from innuendo!). Sport is the perfect example, it used to feel like life or death. Now it's more like mild-happiness vs mild-discomfort.

That's just crazy talk.

I should point out that this I usually go out straight from work at around 5ish.

Old is when; the glass of wine has replaced the pint of bitter, shoes are bought from Clarkes, you say 'what's he/she wearing don't they know its freezing' and finally when you mention a TV program you used to watch in black and white and your the only one who remembers it was in black and white.

So you should just be nicely warmed up by about 9? ;)
I'll regard myself as old when I start wearing shoes.

shoes are bought from Clarkes, .


That reminds me; there was a BBC report a few months ago on how Clarks shoes have recently become popular in Jamaica. The presenter signed off with "and if you want to see this report again, it'll be available on the I and I Player". :D

Jeez, I would have classed drinking bitter as a sign of getting old.

Just how old are you....

When you're appointed an assistant, her CV says she was born in 1990 and you realise that means she's 22/23. :

When you sit down to tie your laces.

Yes, I do mostly only wear Clarks shoes and safety shoes, though, so far, never at the same time.

I have woken myself up with my own snoring.

I turn the telly off when there's nothing on that I want to see.

It's about ten years since i last wore jeans. However, I've still kept a couple of pairs in a wardrobe ... just in case.

My garage has got loads of junk, so has the attic.
