Twelve things you should have learned by middle age

The only free thing in this world is the cheese on the mouse trap

It isn’t those jeans that make your behind look big

Middle age is when broadness of the mind and narrowness of the waist swap places

Opportunities look bigger going than coming

Eat well stay fit die anyway

A digestive biscuit in each hand is a balanced diet

If you resemble your passport photo you need the holiday

Its easer to ask for forgiveness than it is permission

The early bird may catch the warm but it’s the second mouse that gets to eat the cheese

Housework made simple by sweeping the room with a glance

Experience allows you to recognise a mistake when you make it twice.

If faced with two evils pick the one you have never tried before

I couldn’t visit a list like this without including my favourite quote from Abram Lincoln:

‘Better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak out and remove all doubt.’
