Now Melanie over at sparksfromacombustiblemind posted a response to Carol’s post here.
I thought my reply on Carol’s blog was worth a post of its own, so here it is!
I’ve been a UTW for years, and the UK government have ensured I had an extra 6 years of practice!
Note: UTW: Under Training Wrinkly
Things sag, and bounce actually. They also tend to drop off (or out) from time to time.
It had been years since I saw my feet, then when I did I was surprised they were so small. They say nothing grows in the shade.
I have a double chin or three, maybe four now, it’s like looking at me over a sliced loaf.
A few years ago I managed to touch my toes, the first time since I left school in 1972. OK, I couldn’t stand up again, but hey, I touched them!
Getting up again from getting down requires a winch or a sofa. Worst case scenario if neither are available is to flip onto my front, get on all fours and stick the backside in the air doing baby steps until sort of upright. Bit like a giraffe going down for a drink in reverse
I have a drink problem when the teapot’s empty, and comfort eat anything when I’m sitting comfortably.
This is actually quite a good response. Cheers Carol.
I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes!
In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too.
On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts.
From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives.
We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

That’s so funny! Bless your heart! I think you and I need superglue for all the drooping and falling parts. Another solution is to live by candlelight and look like a teenager.
Or go around with my eyes shut and remember how I looked years ago! At least I still have most of my natural hair colour!
This made me laugh. Some of these are relatable even though I’m a lot younger than you.
Thanks Astrid. Two years to go until I’m an official OAP……. unless the UK government delay it again to help ‘the economy’ recover.
This is hilarious Di.
thanks. I feel my age sometimes, or should i say the bones do! LOL
I do too, but we’re still going strong, so yey for us! 👏👍🙋🏻♀️

That’s so funny. I know what you mean.
😀 thanks Gary
