That treadmill would certainly have given the first poster's 70-year-old mother-in-law a run for her money!

My Christmas Day!

Popped out to empty the bins before cooking my Christmas dinner. Found a young woman in distress and on the phone to the police. Then a guy came running after her and she asked me for help, as this guy just attacked her. The guy buggered off and I invited her and her 3-y-o daughter into my flat and called the police again. Three police officers called round, after a lengthy discussion they decided to nick the guy who lived just around the corner, but only after backup arrived. It took 7 police officers to arrest a man as old as I am!

Spent the rest of the afternoon with this lovely lady [Kaf, I'm not bragging ;) ], but in the meantime, her 3-y-o daughter ran amock in my living room. Completely rearranged it. I had to move every small object of value out of reach, she opened a kitchen draw and helped herself to bags of crisps, dropping most of them on the floor. I had a 6-pack of small orange juice cartons, I gave her a carton of orange juice but she eventually opened all of them, drank a bit of each and spilt the rest on the floor, perhaps to wash away the crisps. I later found my landline phone in the kitchen sink and the contents of my coffee table behind the sofa! A whole hour to clean up afterwards!

Full respect to anyone who's had children - don't know how you managed for 18 years. :lol:
After all that - I've got myself a bird! :D :D :D

Anyone got any tips on how to be romantic and sweep a woman off her feet? :lol:

Well, haters would say that dating a single mum is like continuing someone else's save game :)

But saving a damsel in distress on flippin' Xmas should already be romantic enough ;)

Just be yourself, take her out to a local park & set a bench on fire, but the biggest lesson I've learned is you should always be wrong even when right, thats the most romantic thing ever.

I find the whole concept of "sweeping her off her feet" difficult in general sense. It's setting false expectations & probably a contributing reason as to why so many relationships peak. It's equivalent to trying to make all & probably a reason that Dobbing exists.
