I'm doing much the same as you guys 'cept on a bigger timescale, in that the family's permanently back home and after being sort-of full-time with them for the last 20 years, I now have a couple of years of more-or-less doing what I want (as opposed to being restrained for 10 months then being free for 2 months).

I can't possibly put down in indelible interweb ink what I get up to, but it does include all my preferred vices except playing cards for money (sadly).

Mid-life crisis? Hell yes!
