Ah, I just went with refusing to "grow up", getting old is kind of compulsory... unless you want to be dead.
I bought my first BMW at 21, so have been old for decades :)

Re: Things you wish you hadn’t done....🤦‍♂️

My life would have been completely different if I'd stayed on I guess and as it's been pretty good it's not a big deal. Be interesting to know how it would have panned out though but hey ho, we can't go there can we. Yes. I'm very happy with where I am now, but with the background that, for example...

Re: mattresses

We bought an Emma, back in August. There are various discounts available, IIRC we got 30% as Filly is in one of the professions that they support (sic). It's fine, post-op I was able to sleep comfortably even without a pillow, it adapted so well. Definitely more comfortable than the previous pocket ...

Re: Grand Designs, yeah, no, maybe ?

There's one near our friends in Cumbria.Unfortunayely, construction allegedly bankrupted the local engineering company the designer owned. I remember that one, somewhere near Cockermouth IIRC. Lawsons did the haulage for it. Yup, off towards Workington. It's off a little lane, so might have been a ...

ISTR that you're married, so when your wife goes out then she could bring the virus back and infect you?
If it's the husband and wife that I think it is, this might have an interesting answer.

Filly complained when I insisted that she have a waterproof and warm hi-viz coat in her car. Until the cold damp morning when a bung came out of the fuel system, losing half a tank in less than a mile. She got away from the car, and wore the big coat, when phoning the AA (who asked "Do you nee...

Right up to the point the tech stops working. Which will be shortly after the guarantee runs out. Most modern cars are designed to be almost zero maintenance for the 3 or 4 years they spend in a business fleet. My car has full LED headlights. They're superb and supposed to last the lifetime of the ...
