I just wonder how much is spent trying to hold back the years? Plastic surgery, lotions and potions and hair transplants are a must for some people - and sometimes going horribly wrong.

When you see the sixth form girls on their way to college and you think "ooh I bet she's cold, she ought to put a nice warm coat on"

Wow! I hope I never get that old! :ph34r::)

If you're really old, as in watched Benny Hill, then you think "ooh I wish it was still ok to chase after her and smack her backside".

That's one of the drawbacks of Devon.

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.

Slip on shoes

I still call it Emmerdale Farm. Well, it was when I last watched it.

Been nightclubbing or is it those aches and pains waking you up from ageing! :D

Standard Friday night; I walk a few miles home so it's not really as if I was drinking that late. Still makes working every Saturday morning a challenge. Can't have my usual afternoon nap either; the Bulls are playing.

There's an Irish builders saying ... if you can't handle a days work after a good drink; it's time to give up work!

;)

Supposed to snow tonight. Never mind, I'll have a sleep, then take it quietly and come home at closing time.

when your first born turns 26 (today) and your youngest is in her 22nd year

when the moans and groans you make are no longer (only) of the sexual nature

when in your head your still able to do it all, but your body says a big fat yer joking

when your long term memory is far better than your short term

when young people get up and offer their seat on the bus

when you don't give a stuff about any of this and you're still having a laugh, enjoying what you have, and glad you're not having to relive it all ha ha

Ha! You're nowhere near old, mate. You remembered to buy the paper.

Didn't you? :O

Whilst working, I regularly walk to my van and wonder what it is I want out of it by the time I get there.

And I haven't reached 50 yet. :(

It's just occurred to me that some of the pupils I have taught will be turning 50 this year.

And I'll be turning 60 soon. :(
