It was my bithday last thursday and it felt good to know that, at 62, I was a relative youngster in comparison with singer, song writer, Paul McCartney who was 67 and cookery book writer and T.V. presenter, Deliah Smith who was 68.
Time for a little philosophy. Very few people know the time and date of the most important day of their lives - not that of their birth, which in my case was in a hospital bed, in a thunderstorm in Lewisham, London, at 3 o'clock on a wednesday morning. No, it is the date and time, 9 months before, when they were conceived.
I wish I hadn't gone down that path. It's made me realise that I'm almost a year older than I thought !
