I reckon I'm too old for a midlife crisis now. I've emerged from the other side pretty at one with slightly more sensible shoes and a sodding touring caravan.

My midlife crisis? I'll be 51 in four weeks. Fifty-fucking-one. My crisis was in 2012 when I quit my menial job to go to school.

Why are you wearing your son's clothes? ha...seriously, you don't look too bad at all but thanks for reminding us all about The Bluetones after all these years. Hey, that's showbiz. Very Happy

I think mine began the day I started seeing my ex again from the '90s, which turned out to be one big bad move. It's all too easy to have 101 regrets about the past through rose-tinted specs and why it ended.

Many would say me dancing away like a demented teenybopper at the front of Mode was one, but the combination of the bar and great music were just too good to miss. Back in the day, I used to be one of those annoying drunken brats who used to run from side-to-side in order to make the crowd sway for a laugh, so I guess it's progress!
