Upon nearly reaching 65

Be it known to all that upon Wednesday next I will arrive at the grand old age of 65.  This used to be a major life point, when one was officially recognised as “old”, and could amongst other benefits travel free upon the omnibus.  However, due no doubt to budget considerations, Her Majesty’s Government has decided to postpone this “milestone” for a further six months in my case.

Therefore I similarly intend to postpone my celebrations until 1st November when (Brexit permitting), the parsimonious Department of Work and Pensions will commence repaying some of my contributions to their coffers over the last 47 years.

No doubt I shall have to make an application, but I have been preparing for this eventuality for some time…

I am lucky.  My wife’s original expectations have been delayed for more than six years!
