I was just knuckling down to write a post tonight when the phone rang. Once we get chatting there's no stopping us, so blame my sister for this non post. Did someone say there was a budget today? I think I missed it. I caught a mention of it on the car radio on the way back from town. Don't know much about it though, the journey only takes about eight minutes. I called in the library as I remembered that they have Newspaper discussions and wanted to know which day and time it takes place. It's on a Thursday at 10.30am, wonder if I ought to go to that tomorrow, will think about it, it's free.
While I was there I picked up a free copy of Mature Times, does anyone else get that? It always looks quite interesting on the front page, but when I get inside it I can't find anything to grab my attention. I think I must be at an in between age, somewhere between a teenager and a pensioner. In fact half the time I don't believe I am a pensioner, I'm more a recycled teenager. I am certainly not old, which is the age that this paper seems to cater for. I have to flit through it quickly as I find it quite depressing. There's adverts about getting your bathroom adapted if you have mobility problems, funerals, hearing aids, stairlifts, life insurance, care home fees, retirement homes, and super strength cod liver oil.
One advert caught my eye. They are flogging a book called Mature Guide to relationships, love and sex. It's a book designed to help you nurture and develop existing relationships, or help you find new ones. It will help you to make improvements to your marriage, and help those who are single to plan a future relationship. It claims to give practical, down to earth and humorous advice about sex, love, and those bumpy bits. Oh my word, a sex manual for wrinklies. That is something I am definitely not in need of. Surely it's like riding a bike, once you have mastered it you never forget.
There is a picture of Dr Hilary Jones on the back page, he is the advisor to the health company that sells the cod liver oil. He is getting on a bit, but still looks in pretty good nick, and quite handsome for his age. Probably a bit too old for me though, ha ha. Unless he's a recycled teenager.
My brain is shutting down for the night, I'm off to bed. Toodle pip
