When you desperately need a hip replacement but you keep getting told you're too young!?!??...

I'll let you work that one out!...

Looking at my to-do list today, and seeing the note to consolidate all the other lists into just the one big one - must remember later on!

when you talk to schoolkids about the 70's and they say, 'Yeah we are doing the 70's in history'.

History, HISTORY! History is dinosaurs and Henry VIII, that's history! The 70's can't be history I still remember it. Ted Heath, 3-day week, winter of discontent. Best thing about a power cut when your 10 is the candles, the worst bit is missing Z Cars.

I was a punk rocker for goodness sake! Much embraced with vigour by my 14 year old self.

History indeed!

When Mark mentions not getting a flyer for the night club and you know just how it feels.

When you have to consult a 14 yr old about current mobile phones, and which they think you are capable of understanding. 

When the builders no longer whistle when you walk by!

When you keep getting those 'senior moments'

Doesn't apply to me.  Can still run the 100 metres in 30 seconds 

Not surprising when you get so much practice running away from mischief

When you fall asleep on the sofa in the afternoon    ( I know I probably ate too much of Doves cake )

When you tell people to take their coats off the minute they come inside, or they "won't feel the benefit" when they go back outside.

I read this week about a New Zealand couple in their 60s who ran a marathon EVERY DAY last year. They are raw food vegans and look pretty healthy in the photo. They ate up to 30 bananas a day each whilst doing this.

"I won't take my coat of, I'm not stopping"... who said that?

When you don't want to go to the loo, but think when you see one, I'd best make sure.

When you're about to go out, and check and recheck that you have turned things off or locked the doors or picked your keys up 

When even when you're hooked on watching Sherlock Holmes, you still can't resist
