I share a bit of that. I was 23 when my mother died. She never got to see me land on my feet so to speak. I would've loved the opportunity to take her out and look after her. I'm getting married this year and although it has been 12 years since her passing she will be missed.

think a lot of this will happen a lot more in future with people having kids when they re older (not suggesting u mum was old when u were born) and there seems to be a new disease every week thats waiting around the corner to fell us the minute we are off guard, prob a lot of young adults are going to feel the same things.

It's a bit harder for me at 29 but I'll give it a go...

 

Miss - enjoying RL without knowing about the bullsh*t that came with it, playing computer games religiously, my dad, performing on big stages, Widnes being the best, thinking Liverpool was so big it was exciting, feeling like I could still make it as a RL player, finding out about stuff for the first time, never having to diet, some social clubs, the lack of computers to constantly distract.

 

Don't miss - secondary school where people were genuinely nasty, church, missing the 3 O'Clock Good Friday game, the bitchiness of the music scene, worrying that I'll never get laid, struggling to find the answer to the simplest of things, hating everything and everyone associated with Union.

your dont miss list sounds like my weekly life story now, apart from church and school!

What I miss: getting on the bus on a Sunday morning, for a visit to Oriental City in North London. Then the property was bought by B&Q for a superstore that never got built. All the Oriental City traders and food stall owners were kicked out and the building now lies derelict.

 

What I won't miss: If all goes to plan, Oriental City will be reborn some time next year as part of a development bankrolled by Morrisons, so I definitely won't miss the last few years when it was closed down.

Make sure to mention her in your speech, that would be my advice.

I wish my Dad had met my daughter. That's probably the greatest regret of my entire life. He would have adored her, and she him.

That's me.  I'm done.

Aye. One of the things I am grateful for was that she did meet my fiancée and told me in no uncertain terms that she was a keeper.
