I am 85 and I am sure that my musings will ring a bell with some, if not many of you.
On Wednesday I went out with a friend to celebrate her birthday (81).
This evening I have been out for a meal with my GD, she is having elective surgery on Wednesday and I thought it would be a treat for her and to take her mind off it for a few hours.
The two evenings, for two people each evening cost just less than the deposit on our first home in 1961.
We had saved so hard for that, sacrificing so much to do it.
Who would ever have thought then, that in the future we would have been gaily paying such a sum for eating out.
It has certainly made me think but it is the nature of progress I suppose.
