Having one child makes you a parent; having two you are a referee – David Frost


My kids call it yelling when I raise my voice.
I call it motivational speaking for the selective listener.


Child: Mum? What is…normal?
Mother: It’s just a setting on the dryer, honey.

Ageing doesn’t mean giving up on style and individuality; it doesn’t mean abandoning fashion and living in comfy slippers and flannel knickers.
Twiggy


Getting old is a fascination thing. The older you get, the older you want to get.
Ralph Waldo Emerson


And here’s Warning by Jenny Joseph:

When I am an old woman, I shall wear purple
With a red hat which doesn’t go, and doesn’t suit me.
And I shall spend my pension on brandy and summer gloves
And satin sandals, and say we’ve no money for butter.
I shall sit down on the pavement when I’m tired
And gobble up samples in shops and press alarm bells
And run my stick along the public railings
And make up for the sobriety of my youth.
I shall go out in my slippers in the rain
And pick flowers in other people’s gardens
And learn to spit.

You can wear terrible shirts and grow more fat
And eat three pounds of sausages at a go
Or only bread and pickle for a week
And hoard pens and pencils and beermats and things in boxes.

But now we must have clothes that keep us dry
And pay our rent and not swear in the street
And set a good example for the children.
We must have friends to dinner and read the papers.

But maybe I ought to practise a little now?
So people who know me are not too shocked and surprised
When suddenly I am old and start to wear purple.

Promises are like crying babies in a theatre, they should be carried out at once.
