This is a question Getting Old

Drimble asks: When was it last brought home to you just how old you're getting? We last asked this in 2004, and you're eight years older now. Eight. Years.

A Horrible Hometime Realisation
As I was packing up to leave work the other day, I checked in my cupboard and found a bag of sweets.

"Ooh!" I thought, "I'll take those for the journey"

'For the journey', for arse's sake. I might as well buy a tartan blanket for the parcel shelf and be done with it.

I'm also on the cusp of another stage in the language-of-ageing process, specifically how my leisure time is described.
Childhood: 'Playing'
Teens: 'Hanging out'
Young people: 'Chilling'
Me, any day now: 'Pottering'

I'll need to be careful, of course. Too much extreme pottering and I might have a fall.

"tending his veg patch"
Is that the euphemism du jour?
