YOU KNOW YOU'RE GETTING OLD WHEN [2]....

.... you hear a friend explaining to her children that watches used to have wind-up mechanisms.  You feel even older when you tell them that yours still works that way!

What I really want - and am always on the lookout for - is a proper clock that ticks.

Ideally I'd love a grandfather clock but they're too expensive.

Hope your Christmas was better than you could have hoped for. Love to you and Simi from me and George. xx

Oh, yes! Now though, these watches are antiques, probably valuable if they came from Tiffany or...

I always ruined my wind up watches by winding them too tight. Thankfully, the new type came along!!!

oh nooooo not a cuckoo clock .. would drive you barmy .. and so would a grandfather clock.

My mother-in-law has a clock that ticks in the spare room where we sleep .. I have to put it in the other room before I get into bed , if I forget ..it annoys me and I cannot sleep ..

Hi, Rosaria. I never thought of that!
Hi, Carmen. I used to do that, too. Hi, Anne. Well, I suppose it would drive me mad really!

I used to have a Timex watch. It was probably an adult ladies watch but I was 7 or 8 so it fitted perfectly. Absolutely beautiful. Chrome dial with simple face, black numbers on a white dial. Black leather strap. I loved it. I think I grew out of it in the end...

... and it was wind-up!

Hi, Gleds. I used to have a Timex, too - with Cinderella on it. I loved it.

Fine but yours will still work when their batteries run out!
