‘You know you’re getting old when you can pinch an inch on your forehead.’
John Mendoza

You might be getting a bit thin on top, plump at the middle and creaky around the knees, but that doesn’t mean you’ve forgotten how to enjoy yourself! This collection of witty quotations, light-hearted yarns and cheerful jokes will help you chalk that last ‘senior moment’ down to experience, forget the grey hairs and the twinges, and celebrate getting older with a smile on your face and a twinkle in your wrinkle.

You know you’re having a senior moment when you decide it’s time to pull up your socks – and realize you forgot to put any on!

Age is just a number and you’re only as old as you feel, but if you’re heading into your golden years and you’re certifiably “no spring chicken”, you might benefit from browsing through the pages of this tongue-in-cheek book to help you decide if your marbles just need a polish or you’ve well and truly lost them!

Inside you’ll find examples of classic “senior moments”, such as:

– Ringing a friend to ask them for their phone number.
– Getting annoyed at the fact that your all-in-one remote won’t open your garage door.
– Going to the store for milk and coming home with a new dog collar, rawl plugs, some plant pots that were on special offer… but no milk.
– Feeling frustrated by your computer’s instructions to “press any key”, when there’s no “Any” key on your keyboard.
With a sprinkling of reassuring quotes from fellow old-timers, this collection will help you see the funny side of getting older (but not necessarily wiser).

Have you ever wanted to know…




Which junction to take for Gibraltar?


How to save £35,040 a year on Dartford Crossing tolls?


How many assassins were buried within the concrete of the M25? (at least one)


Why it’s important that North Ockendon declares itself independent from Greater London at the earliest opportunity?




This indispensable biography of a road profiles the 117 miles of Britain’s most infamous motorway, from its controversial origins to its present-day status as backdrop to the lives and commutes of millions. Told with Ray Hamilton’s trademark powers of observation and off-the-wall humour, it is an eye-opening account of the stuff you didn’t know about the M25 – including the action, sightseeing or nature-loving fun you can have coming off at any junction – and a very different view of the stuff you did know.
