I used to complain about the weather and the short daylight hours of the winter but actually relish it now and never wish my life away hoping the days will rush past to get to the next season.

Hope this doesn’t sound negative and as I’ve no interest in 84+ year-old women then I’ll wish you all a happy winter solstice and a very merry Christmas to follow also!


I'll bet you don't waste your life picking people up on spelling mistakes :D

I'm the oldest male in my family, have been since I passed 51. The males in my family tended to get shot at, blown up or sunk or missing (Menin Gate). So I'm in uncharted water so to speak, however, I might possibly out-lived my usefulness. Should've been fitted with an obsolescence switch.
Things were better in my day(lol)...I had the benefit of a proper education, I left school able to read, write, do mental arithmetic and comprehend. I had a great childhood along with my friends using our imaginations, making castles, trollies etc. There was little crime because we all had the same tat. We had relatively full employment, apprenticeships in abundance and luckily we were numerate and worth employing.
Nowadays you have poorly educated children who go to school to be taught how to tie shoelaces, how to go to the loo and how to behave in a group setting without creating a scene to get attention. What moron decided that it was okay for children to take mobile phones to school? What happened to ringing the school office leaving a message?
In my day 'getting lucky' used to be undoing two buttons on a girls cardi, now, well it's a family show. I can honestly say that I haven't added to this situation as my lads, 4 of them, are decent human beings, THANKS TO THEIR MUM,and we had them later in life, after I'd left the forces.
I'm not being a holy than thou, I just regret what we've become and I find it sad...Merry Christmas Everyone and I wish everyone a very happy, healthy New Year.....Misery Guts..... :ok :ok
