Does the stretched generation exist? Are you part of it? We're running a survey to find out what pressures are facing women over 50 and what we'd most like to kick up a fuss about wink

And so have I though don't really feel it applied to me, having no older relatives and live too far from the family to be of use to them.

Well, I suppose they want a balanced survey - some are more 'stretched' than others!

Always there if they need me though! wink

Done it. Feel rather smug at being so unstretched and content.
