When my 17 year old nieces genuinely didn't know what a phonebox was. They are smart girls but I had to explain to them that there was a time when when I would tell my girlfriend that I would phone her at 8pm on Friday evening and I'd make my way to the end of the street to the nearest phonebox at 7.50. They were intrigued lol.

Shopping around for insurance prices, being responsible about getting car services done on time, buying household essentials in bulk, being in bed at a reasonable time on weeknights, spending weeks deliberating on the style of dinner service to buy, keeping spare bulbs in a special basket on the shelf, never forgetting to fill the car up on a Sunday for the week, checking my partner has taken his multivitamin because he usually forgets.

Being sensible makes me feel old.

That's when I finished secondary school. In fairness, I was only 16 at the time but still, it's 20 years ago
