l loved this, I have been listening to it in the midst of the coronavirus pandemic, retired, feeling isolated, a bit sorry for myself, inside I feel in my 30s, so much I still want to do with my life, and yet it's people's attitudes to someone of my age that annoy me! The other day a friend made the comment re isolating yourself and said in all seriousness "you and other elderly", to say I was affronted and annoyed is to put it mildly, cheeky cow! Some of the letters have reaffirmed my belief that just because you are a woman of a certain age, you should not let others opinions, actions or beliefs lead you to act or be, less than you know you are, I have no intention of ever being "elderly" or of being who I am not just to fit in with their presumptions. if that makes me a "difficult" woman, then so be it, it has taken me a very long time to get this confident and comfortable in my own skin and I will allow no one to undermine me however well meaning they may be.
