You know you are getting old when...
You stop and pick up a coin from the ground and not just for 'good luck' but because it is money. Truth is it is difficult to buy anything for under £1 these days and almost nothing for under 10p.
When you start taking about pension and your friends join in too, only to discover that due to wretched changes you have to wait at least another 10yrs!
When you have to have a knee replacement and can't dig for 3 months!
When you fall asleep in front of the T.V.: I used to think that only really ancient people did that! But I've found myself doing it for the last few months
That's not because you're old artjak. It's because TV is boring
Nut. But I am enjoying the new Sherlock Holmes series; so good to see great acting.
I don't watch much, well, hardly anything. I haven't seen sherlock. Maybe I should give it a try
When you find yourself shouting at what's being said on the radio or tv
When you spend ages looking for the phone, then find it just where you put it..... in the fridge
When you see the price of jeans and think how much stuff you could buy for the garden with that money.
Or when you spend ages looking for something and realising you never had it in the first place!
No Mark1963 when you stop buying jeans in a tight fit and go for comfort fit or even stop buying jeans and buy comfort trousers.
or ask at the off licence if they need to see ID and they reply no, it's OK "I don't need to see your bus pass"
comfort trousers, how great are they! it's just one step near the ultimate goal - in your PJ's all day!
Mark what did you go and say that for "coffee has gone every were"
I've not got to this stage yet:
When you start discussing your bowels with anyone who will listen.
Glad to hear that Kef, (that your not at that stage, not glad to hear about your bowels!!)
Not a subject I want to discuss, although you're right older people tend to lol.
I remember when !
So do I, err what was it, but now i've forgotten!!!
You go upstairs to get something, then when you get up there you've forgotten why you went up!!!
bugger I'm old then star Gaze lily as I spend most of my days arriving in any room and forgetting why I went in there. Don't get me started when I'm in the garden.
I have to now write a list of things I need to do but I also find when I go shopping I've forgot the list LOL
You phone up your daughter to tell her about all the people who have died recently fully aware she didn't know #any# of them.
