Just think -- only 40 or so more years and you too can lose track of the difference between weekdays and weekends.

Oh, I can still differentiate between Sunday and the rest of the week, there are important differences.

Like the programming on BBC Radio 4 is not to my taste, the buses run every half hour rather than every 12 minutes and the shops close at 4pm. Oh, execpt the little one round the corner that is run by Asians.

Terrible first world problems you must aggree.
Tomorrow is precious, don't ruin it by fouling up today.

That's good, could have been better I thought and I've heard it said.
61 is a lot more than 38, there's probably a brain thing (semantics?..na it's a number not a word, but sixty one is a word(s) too..) that sees 61 as only 11 above a pass mark.

And 79.5% participation was good.

Of course the TRUE RELIGIOUS don't want any law introduced that is intolerant of the age old right of religion to be intolerant.

We didn't need to have it though, the parliament could have just voted on it without wasting $110,000,000 on non binding poll and then voting on it.

Received a "sign for" letter from my bank today. Oh, oh.

Opened it to find that I had won a prize in the monthly savers' draw. Phoned the helpline number I always use before going to the specified website yo claim. Website could not accept the codes in the letter, phoned helpline again - have to go to my brsnch to sort it. Off to town.

Codes would not work in the branch either, lady had to get the manager to phone.

Didn''t get one of the three £100 000 top prizes, nor one of the five £1000 second prizes . . .

But I did get one of the £100 prizes! Went to lunch in Cafe Rene to celebrate (panfried trout in garlic/dill sauce, almonds and red onion, triple cooked chunky crispy chips (fries), salad and a medium glass of Merlot).

OK, nearly 15% of it spent already but - yum!

Actually, there wasn't much to it. My husband's wish list was complete - and everything was at Amazon, so it only took a few clicks. If I happen to be out-n-about and see something small I think he'll like, I'll get it, but for all intents and purposes I'm done.

(Neither of us is close enough to any other family to bother exchanging gifts with them. Neither of us is unhappy about this situation.)
