    I'm finally 60, which, by most sources, takes me out of the "middle-aged"and into the "Old" category
    Not elderly yet (15 years to get to that stage if I can) but allegedly "old enough to know better"

    The hell with that!

    Today has been spent trying to invent a new cocktail,
    After a few trials the following ingredients seem to be unique (unless of course you know better) and, failing challenges, will henceforth be known as a Robstopper.
    1. I measure Cherry Brandy
    2. i measure Barcardi
    3. I measure Drambuie
    4. I measure of non-cream coffee liqueur (kahlua)
    5. I measure lime juice (Roses preferred)
    6. All in a half pint glass and toped up with lemonade
    I've had three today and am slightly inebriated

    My thanks to Joy and Em for remembering xx.

    And my hope that TES posters and moderators will allow this to go by just for tonight
    I think I've earned it over the last 14 years (even if I did get it wrong at the end)
    I just wanted to be able to celebrate with my friends on here ( I still have a few)
    It may be too much to ask and you get to decide.
    Let's see

    the original and genuine

    I feel ungracious for not recognising your username, but suspicions are no longer tolerated on NuTES. Congratulations on your achieving elderliness (stop kidding yourself, and Iam right behind you) and when you've consumed enough of that bonfire-starter cocktail, will join you in sticking one right up at mortality.
    What proper narks me off is that I thought I was getting a bus pass at 60 but turns out no, I have to be sixty bloody seven! I might be dead by then!

    Was just a cupcake with a single candle but at my age anything will do ;)
