The Next Age

Well, my brother Emyr hit 65 last Wednesday (and his grandson Jac was 6 the same day), so yesterday was his last day in work - apparently he's having a surprise week in Madeira next week! I thought it amusing that his last day at work was also the day I got a letter from the DWP telling me that I won't get my state pension until my 66th birthday (they must be giving around 10 years notice!). Still, at least I'm lucky - pension age is planned to go up to 67 a few years after me. It's all very well to say people are living longer and kids born today have a 1 in 3 chance of seeing 100, but that's not much comfort to me - Dad was a month short of 66, my eldest brother Gwyn was 41, and second oldest brother Hywel only made it to 1 day (but he doesn't really count)!
