Being a woman and middle-aged means that I am the one to warm up the bed.

In contrast, my middle-aged wife is the block of ice who sleeps in PJs in a sleeping bag under her duvet and blankets, often aided by a hot water bottle while I am one of nature's radiators who sleeps naked under a summer duvet.

I can go with the cold weather one Lou.

I used to be the one wandering round, de icing cars whilst wearing a t shirt and shorts. I was also the go to bed warmer. Mrs F used to rely on me going to be 10 minutes before her as I used to get pleasure from climbing into a chilled bed and warming up. Too chuffing cold for that nowdays.

i have often wondered whether there was a living to me made, offering my bed-warming services to thermally-challenged ladies...

The eye doctor tells you "Your distance vision is improving" followed by "It's a side effect of your cataracts getting larger".

A short discussion of "when they do the lens implant, you'll have fixed vision and use readers to see things up close, but no more need for distance-vision correction"

and "we will let you know when you need to talk to the eye surgeons about this"

When what is in your brain to say

"We never did get that greenhouse this year"

And what (nearly) comes out:

"We never did get that wing mirror this year"

People of reasonably (?) advanced years come out with stuff like this https://yacf.co.uk/forum/index.php?topic=11510.msg2347668#msg2347668

Middle aged? that made me feel old.

You really cant remember if you bought that set of pliers to put in the toolbox your filling for Pcolbeck junior for when he leaves home after Christmas and if you did buy them where the hell you put them.
I think you'll find it's a bit more complicated than that.
