3. The youth of today scare and confuse you.

It wasn't like that when you were at school, six years ago.


5. You really enjoy antiquing.

You also actively research antiques, so that you can be knowledgeable about all the cool stuff that will fill your lovely countryside period property.

But the pub is OK, as long as the music isn't too loud and you can sit down somewhere warm, and get home at a reasonable time.

7. Going out is not much of a consideration for the weekend, either.

10. You have an annual membership to English Heritage, National Trust or any museum.

Or at least you will be, once you move out of your shitty flat and into that lovely countryside period property with at least an acre of land.

14. Beekeeping is also something you would consider.

As well as just about any kind of sustainable food production.

15. You'd like at least several hours per day to prepare elaborate meals.

17. In short, you would much rather be crafting.
