    Ah but this is the joy of internet dating, comparing notes on;
    axe murderers, people who think they need a passport to get out of their town, men who have mattresses in their work vans, those with lovely cars and bikes and horrendous combovers etc.etc.etc.

    I am going on a paying site so hopefully we won't be dredging up some pondlife among the fish!!! Ready to try anyway.

    ......and in other news


    I've had a letter from the bank telling me that on current projections the £6k part of my mortgage will be paid off 11 years early in 2022
    :beer::beer::beer:

    We'll keep going with that repayment plan then!

    Four hours sleep last night, I think because I was on social media too late. Going to stop tonight in a minute and then have a bergamot tea and watch Line of Duty again. Hopefully I'll fully get it this time! (Line of Duty, not the tea!)

    Started cycling at the weekend. Only 7 miles. It's a start but a small one. Fair knackered me I have to say!

    Yoga tonight - bloomin hard but I do love it when my ankles go down during the class. :T She's such a good teacher. She was doing a class which opens your heart and opens your hips. As I'm going slow dating on Thursday that may be useful :rotfl::rotfl::rotfl:
