Dont know if anyone else saw the programme on ITV 1 tonight about increased life expectancy. The forecast aparently is that we will soon live to be 150. I dont know about anyone else the thought petrifies me. I will be 57 in a couple of weeks time and I am beginning to look forward to retirement in a few years time- 30 years plus of shift work takes its toll! It will be nice to have more time to myself and to do the things that I enjoy but if I live to be 150 I honestly think that I would end up being a burden on both state and society and being the individual that I am I would not wish that.
Talking of TV its Children In need night again today. Its something I tend to avoid although I know that it raises vast amounts of cash for very worthy causes. Tonight there is a good reason to watch (or at least listen) to it. Its being co hosted by one of my favourite jazz singers Clare Teal who is worth a listen any time. To be honest though I actually prefer Clare Martin!
