You wonder why the DVD isn't pausing, and realise you've been using the remote for the telly, rather than the one for the DVD player.
Another sunrise with my sad captains, with who I choose to lose my mind,
And if it's all we only pass this way but once, what a perfect waste of time.

Yup, me too. Went to my bed just after the bells, couldn't even be bothered having any drink.

Once it's all over I'm usually checking the flower beds every day for the first sign of daffodil shoots poking through and for Tesco to start stocking easter eggs, barbecues and lawn mowers again....

You see the primary school kids walking home after the school day, and think to yourself "Was I ever that young?"

Yep, looking forward to Valentines Day and Easter stuff in the shops, given that I can't find anything now with all of the Xmas shite everywhere.
Off to my wee bit of Scotland in the middle of a national park in Central France in a couple of weeks for a couple of months - retirement does this too you :P - to talk to the coos, cut down some trees and ignore the festive season.

You haven't seen the umpteen pages of outstanding DIY. The Forth Bridge was still being painted when I started, and they've beaten me 8)
