Fair to Middling...

Exercise woe...I have pulled a groin muscle. Fnarr! Fnarr! as Finbar Saunders would say. It could have been worse and I pull a grin muscle, but sadly I overdid the powerwalking the other day and I am limping along slowly. Cycling on the backburner for a couple of days as I recover.
Memo to self:'I am no longer a fit athletic eighteen year old with boundless energy and corresponding recuperative powers'.
I looked in the shaving mirror the other day and was horrified to see a middle-aged man staring back at me. I also realised whilst laughing at something on the telly that I could hear my father laughing. Both of these realisations over the past week have brought it home to me...I am middle-aged and I am more like my father than I had previously believed.Or as Mrs.C pointed out to me "You're an old fart". I felt grounded after that and all the better for it. As I may have mentioned before, I've booked my mid life crisis for when I am 50 and I can afford it. A Harley Davidson plus the leathers for the 'Easy Rider' look. I don't have the energy or inclination to chase 18 year old girls, but posing on a big old slow hog does sound like fun.Having said that, I'll probably be on the old bicycle because petrol prices will put such dreams beyond my means...that'll be healthier and better in the long run for me.
I have to go...No.1 son needs new trainers,trousers, shirts,jeans, etc....

Handy Tip: Try asking your father if he has finished in the bathroom before commencing shaving, you whipper-snapper, you x
