“A survey last week listed the 50 indicators that you have become a fully fledged adult, which include being able to bleed a radiator, washing up immediately after eating, and carrying spare shopping bags “just in case”.

“I’ve already failed on quite a few – such as owning “best towels” and “filing post” – but in any case I’d like to substitute a handful of my own: buying a slow cooker; enjoying lunch alone in a restaurant rather than fretting that people will think you’re a “Billy-no-mates”; and, when you hear a much-loved song, briefly considering whether you might like it played at your funeral.”
