we went to York recently and passed an old red phone box. My nephew (10) asked what it was and when we told him he thought we were taking the piss. He couldn't believe most people didn't have a landline at one time, nevermind that mobile phones weren't even invented. That made me feel well old.

I told my dd I 'wasn't born yesterday'. That's almost as bad, I fear....

I have found myself gazing outside on rainy days and remarking 'oh well, the garden needs it'. Could I sound any more like my mother?
