Happiness is aged 74!

It has been in the news recently that the height of happiness in one's life is reached at the age of 74. Husband is aged 73. Husband is a quiet man, a very quiet man.

We enjoy, on a regular basis, "afternoon tea" with some old friends of ours. We visited them yesterday and had a jolly good "grumpy" afternoon. We have good fun putting the world to rights - I don't know who is the grumpiest. If you get Husband on to the subjects of global warming, green energy such as wind farms and space exploration he blows a fuse! But as Husband says one can be happy being grumpy!

I quite agree Lindsay - no good getting older if you can't get grumpier! I had a grumpy telephone call with my cousin the other evening and we both felt beter. Ha ha.

I think that men are happy to be grumpy.
I can remember being fairly happy in my forties...... that isn't what was supposed to happen according to the graph.

Nuts in May

I think it is a 'man' thing mostly. My Other Half, Keith absolutely loved shouting at the television but apparently, I have to be there as an audience. It's no fun doing it if he's on his own. ;)
