I am heading towards wrinklyhood and had a look at the site. It seems ok but from what I read, the members are not as young at heart or as open minded as I. I will look in from time to time though.

We have used Saga house and car insurance before, and had a year's free sample of their mag. I haven't looked on the site yet.

I agree with your views, Linz - reading the mag I often felt an interloper, even though I was either in my late 40's or just 50 when we had the mag!! Age is a state of mind, and I am often 'surprised' when I remember my age as I still, honestly, feel 20 odd even though I have a disabling illness.

I read a good strip cartoon in You magazine (Mail on Sunday) the other week. Two women discussing age - can't remember the exact wording but basically one is saying how she doesnt feel middleaged but still a teenager and asks what is the difference, the other says 'the shoes'!!!

You said it girl!!!

I can even remember on at least TWO occasions going to my antenatal clinic heavily preggers wearing knee-high red boots with about 2" platforms and huge heels!! I was married, but only 18/19 at the time - the thought of wearing them at all now gives me a headache hahaha but preganant...!!! And unfortunately when I was pushing Genevieve's pram through the town we lived in I fell over and scuffed them terribly! They were never the same afterwards (I'm glad to say both baby and I were unaffected (except the shame!!)).

you girls go on about the shoes you used to wear?! what about the ones us blokes used to clonk about in! Talk about high heeled wedges, I cant believe how fashions have changed. I used to have these really cool platform boots with all sorts of patterns on them which I used to wear with the most tightest jeans youd ever find! I only thre them boots out about 6 years ago, I loved them so much, but they were so heavy! Unreal for a bloke really but quite normal in them days!!

I had one pair of platforms that were so high and stiff that I had to rock backwards and forwards to get going.

They were not exactly wedges but this is what my husband (of nearly 36 years!) wore to our wedding at Islington Registry Office.

Jimi Hendrix T-shirt; bottle green velvet jacket; jade velvet trousers (I think that's what the colour is called); red suede knee length boots (worn on the outside).

I was practically normal in comparison ! Purple snakeskin effect full length dress; purple cape; green nail varnish on one hand and blue on the other (this was when it was a bit way out to have a colour other than pink or red); black boots; tapestry shoulder bag and....satin Spurs scarf!

Just a normal wedding.....have I given you ideas, Sunniva ? lol ;-)

Well it's great to hear the views! Linz, thanks - I will look at it sometime but bearing in mind your comment about open-mindedness. I hear enough of that sort of moan at bus-stops, supermarket queues, etc.(and more & more)
That's what's good about this site - we ARE tolerant & open & interest each other(even if there's the odd moan)
(Ironically, I first read Michael speaking on his DIARIES in a Saga interview on-line).
Shoes - need a seperate thread!
Keegarum - do you think the 1970s produced the most ridiculous clothes/shoes last century? (Maybe that needs a thread too...)
