Sir-I am 70 years old and have contributed to the economy for 40 years.
What am I supposed to do now-vegetate.My aim is to save the economy as much money as possible.
Five years ago, I suffered from severe joint problems following a road accident.I was one step away from a wheelchair when I joined tai chi classes.Now I can climb stairs,go for long country walks and play with my grandchildren.
i amy not be contributing to the economy,but I am saving the NHS and social services a great deal of money.
