When you need magnifying glass to read instructions!
When you are asked what are you planning for the future and they mean what are you going to study - but you already went through that  :D

;D

hair gets sparser including legs
I don't have that mid length furry leg thing where work boots rubbed for years anymore

better prioritizing on how you want to waste your time  :D
To me, this is one of the advantages of progressing through time. . . I like euphemisms
for aging.  Anyway, now I can use the same razor for 2 months!!!!

When you don't care much how many friends you have but how much you enjoy spending time with them.

I now seek out Retin A (a prescription only anti wrinkle cream) which the kind of enthusiasm I used to only afford to obtaining recreational drugs.

You are at the supermarket and in the magazine section and pick up a copy of The Lady

I always dreamt of working at The Lady.  Their offices were bang opposite ours at another publishers I worked at in Covent Garden.  A gold gilt and white Georgian building, with Christ knows what going on inside.  That was what fascinated me.

Mind you, in it's heyday, Stella Gibbons (Cold Comfort Farm) was one of it's writers.  Havn't seen a copy since my friends Nan passed on, and wonder about their demographic.  There were lots of ads for housekeepers from what I recall.   :D
Hear me RoaaAAARRRRRrrrrr.......... purrrrRRRR.
