Approching 65 myself but I retired 3 years ago to enjoy life more. Strange but when you dont need a job people tend to offer them to you.

Working from home over the last year or so is enjoyable especially when test cricket or whatever sport is on my work can be stressful and very busy but you learn to pace yourself🙂

Coincidentially my fitness started to deteriorate at around the same time

So either don't retire or get yourself a fitness regime appropriate to your level if you do seems to be the answer

I walk between 6 and 8 miles everyday and watch what I eat..........................just the drinking sigh!!!!😉

I feel quite old in day to day life at 31, but this place makes me feel like a child again.

Happy birthday DS!

DZ and Brunners I wish I was your age  ...................   some of the time..................   but only if I knew what I know now

But you'll never see Mannion play or Clough

So you'll have to put up with a boring old F4rt wittering on about them

keep smiling

I was happy with that life style way back then but watch what happens in a bit  - then the drinking catches up and things stop working

and now its almost a tee total regime  - pain in the 4rse
