I don't want you to get bored looking at me and hubby in the garden last year, so I'll show it to you in the daylight, my refuge where the foxes wander.
There is not much that many of you don't know about me now, I enjoy a good laugh and if I can find one I will. If I can make someone smile my day is complete. I enjoy people and people watching but do not suffer fools easily, mainly because my dad told me I would be one when I grew up, and I think he may have been right.
I was born in Yorkshire and the extended family are still there but we now live in Staffordshire, we being my husband of 33 years and our two sons, well one of them has left and lives with his partner a girl whom we love dearly.
My latest hobby is writing and from this I am learning a great deal from and about people, that write.
My latest, latest thing to keep me occupied is making myself a nice new fleece top, it's getting cold and my old one; which must be 12 years old has had to be sent to a better place and I miss it already RIP>

25 SIGNS YOU'VE GROWN UP
Blog Posted:5/28/2013 8:05:00 AM

 

Your house plants are alive, and you can't smoke any of them. 

Having sex in a twin bed is out of the question. 

You keep more food than beer in the fridge. 

6:00 AM is when you get up, not when you go to bed. 

You hear your favorite song on an elevator. 

You watch the Weather Channel. 

Your friends marry and divorce instead of hook up and break up. 

You go from 130 days of vacation time to 14. 

Jeans and a sweater no longer qualify as "dressed up." 

You're the one calling the police because those damn kids next door won't turn down the stereo. 

Older relatives feel comfortable telling sex jokes around you. 

You don't know what time Taco Bell closes anymore. 

Your car insurance goes down and your payments go up. 

You feed your dog Science Diet instead of McDonalds leftovers. 

Sleeping on the couch makes your back hurt. 

You no longer take naps from noon to 6 PM. 

Dinner and a movie is the whole date instead of the beginning of one. 

Eating a basket of chicken wings at 3 AM would severely upset, rather than settle, your stomach. 

You go to the drug store for ibuprofen and antacid, not condoms and pregnancy tests. 

A $4.00 bottle of wine is no longer "pretty good stuff." 

You actually eat breakfast food at breakfast time. 

"I just can't drink the way I used to," replaces, "I'm never going to drink that much again." 

90% of the time you spend in front of a computer is for real work. 

You no longer drink at home to save money before going to a bar. 

You read this entire list looking desperately for one sign that doesn't apply to you!!!
