40 years for me as well and can remember the first day like it was yesterday. Thought it was a right hoot.
I remember my first day, it was shite.
Once you get over a couple of months, you're stronger and you've gained a second skin.
It's been an education, there's a certain pride in being skilled.
When I was a kid, getting a trade was a big deal, that ideal has been devalued.

Nearly 40 years ago I was allowed to hold the golden plastering trowel
A few years after I was allowed out in the world with it from college, under stairs and sheds n shithouses ! Old-school old boys were strict fekers !

So are you now accepting that being jabbed up to the eyeballs hasn't made you superhuman, or that the unjabbed aren't so daft after all?
Time will tell. My opinion is it damages your organs long term even if you don't have symptoms

I know . Where here once
.I.m 47 in august. I swear I was celebrating my 21.st 2 weeks ago. I could be dead tomoz and defo half way through my life. Soon as this extensions done I will defo be cutting back more.

It becomes 24hrs a day, or seems like it when you’ve got building stuff going on and you’re in the building trade. I’ve tried to stop worrying about it and getting stressed about deadlines. It’ll get done and then seem like it never happened.
