    When you’re more interested in MPG than MPH.

    When you can flick through a dulux colour card with interest.

    When you’ve made 3 posts on this thread and shown restraint as you could have posted 20 times.

    When your riding buddies start swapping emails with pictures of them in their early races and you post up yours (national Track Champs) and not only was it taken before most of them were born, the track it took place on was knocked down to make way for Spaghetti Junction.

    Oh – and those respectable old grannies – and you think “bloody hell, I ****ed her”

    Biege becomes a practical clothing colour choice.
    Radio 4 becomes integral in your life.
    You have to pinch yourself when you hear yourself, almost, agreeing with UKIP policies.
    You almost blub at anything vaguely emmotional.
    You think Nick Clegg is a completly ineffectual tool………….oh, hang on, he is.

    Beige clothes… Definitely a sign of getting old, but not one I ever intend to indulge in!

    Your colleagues in a design studio find it scarcely believable that you used to actually draw things by hand…and are amazed that you can actually draw things by hand that look pretty cool 8)

    You start getting colleagues that refer to Playstation One games as ‘retro gaming’.

    I found my first grey nostril hair today. It’s all over.

    And having to explain why I use green text on a black background.

    Thank christ, I thought that was just me.

    The onset is ear and nostril hair going mad but now my eyebrows look like two horizontal Brazilians that need “tidying up”

    When you contemplate spending more money on shampoo than you would on booze. It had caffeine in it plus makes your hair grow back.

    You can remember when the town centre high street was full of independent retailers, and not just pound shops, charity shops, cash converters, and everything else boarded up.

    I wouldn’t mind, but i’m only 37

    Hmm, I’m second youngest in mine, and I’m 52.

    When you make that distinct “aaah” grunt of pleasure when you sit in an armchair.

    And then make the special grunt that indicates mild displeasure and a slight struggle, when you have to get out of said chair 😳

    When you put that stick, the one you’ve just used to stir paint, aside, to use next time….

    When the only only places open on a Sunday were churches and pubs… except…

    When, in order to continue drinking, you had to leave the pub at 3’ish on a Sunday and go in search of a local cricket club…

    When a night on the town – pubs, club, kebab, taxi home came in at around a tenner!

    2 pence was all you needed to use a phone box and, phone boxes were all red….

    When your wife suggests you try on a pair of Craghoppers shorts with an elasticated waist, you do so to humour her then think “wow, comfy” and buy three pairs. I think I crossed a line this weekend.

    ..you remember Noel Edmonds without eye liner.

    ..you can say that you once had a handle on C.B. radio called ‘mighty Mouse’

    ..its possible for someone in the next room to hear your knee’s creaking if you bend down to tie a shoe lace. 😯

    ..you cut your own hair.

    ..you don’t even bother checking it with a 2nd mirror to see if it’s acceptable.

    ..you start to wear odd socks and know it’s a risk if your trousers ride up a little, but risk it anyway.

    ..it progresses and you start to ride the bike wearing odd socks with shorts and don’t give a phek.

    ..you ride your old bmx like your dad did when he tried it for the first time.

    When it’s either a sh@g OR a ride on a Sunday morning. Because if you try to do both, the effort expended on one has a negative effect on the quality/duration of the other

    When you

    only ever wear M&S Cotton Rich sports socks in black

    Me too!
