yes. second childhood syndrome I afraid.
Look at the clock and the calendar.
It'll never be now again.
So just get out and do it.
As fast as you possibly can.
Because .........
Nothing travels faster than the speed of time.

I was wondering where to go next and realised I must share with you a road just round the corner from me.  I present you with Nut Bush Lane in Torquay. I decided the best photo opportunity also included the sign for the Ring Road.

I will take another ride and look for a name sign on the other side of the village. This road sign was the side I usually go.

Looking on Goggle street view there is a name sign on the other side of the village. I don't use that road on my approach and it's not the easiest to photograph but I'll see if I can manage one on a quiet day next time I'm passung though.
