Though I restrain myself from making such noises in public, in private I don't trouble to.

Really, it was the "oooh"s and "ow"s (with a downright feline accent) I was thinking of.

I've had ongoing coccydynia for well over a year now and if I sit wrong or on certain types of sofas or chairs I'll make rather pathetic sounds and take way too long to stand up again.

You can call me TC

I shall make it a belated new year's resolution not to grunt. That involves using more muscles to sit down properly and not just flop, so it's quite a valid resolution. Wish me luck!

Watch straps. Every time one of us buy's the other a watch for Christmas/Birthday there is yet another reinvention of something that ain't broke. The strap clasp.

Spending 20 minutes having to work the blooming thing out without breaking it is really very irritating.

I have thick wrists and have a heck of time finding large enough watchbands. All but one of the "large" ones I have require me to use the last hole. That one that doesn't just proves to me that the others lie.

I have replaced the straps on some of my watches with expanding bracelets. They're easier to put on than fiddling with a buckle or clasp.

I have the opposite problem to the Baron - my wrists are very thin & I end up with loads of strap flapping about. I've now got a metal strap with a clasp, had several links taken out & I find this better, although it does slip about a lot.

The next time I order a watch band I'm probably going to go with the "NATO" G10 style watch strap.
