I’m crying as I write this. It’s the morning after the election and everyone I know is in despair.
I’m not a political person. I can’t even do office politics. I don’t like game-playing and I’m rubbish at lying. I hate it when politicians, or political pundits, are on the news. It feels like a game, or a spectator sport.
I used to work in the music business. Now I have a normal job. I used to live in an edgy, arty northern city. Now I live in middle England. I used to be young. Now I'm starting to show my age...
I am actually still the same person.
Some say that middle age is a journey. Sometimes, going through your forties - or turning fifty - feels more like a roller-coaster. But just tell yourself this: I may be old, but I saw all the cool bands.
