1. Things you need to know about the new ‘Conversations’ PM system:

    a) DO NOT REPLY TO THE NOTIFICATION EMAIL! I get them, not the intended recipient. I get a lot of them and I do not want them! It is just a notification, log into the site and reply from there.

    b) To delete old conversations use the ‘Leave conversation’ option. This is just delete by another name.

    I am 65 today.

    And I ask myself, ‘How did I get here?’

    How nice and thoughtful. I had best wishes from John Lewis, Genesis, Uber, Robert Dyas and Tesco. How do they find the time?

    If I may - at what age were you when you discovered that time paases so much faster after each year?
    I think mine was circa being 50 something, and now realies that while time is a constant, it does vary, such as waiting for an op, waiting in line somewhere for a gig, yet away on holiday, or the distance between 'birthdays' - well, you get it.
    Have a great birthday!

    It seems only yesterday I passed 60. But then, the whole world has lost two years in the last five!
    When we start to lose people like Hilary Mantel at 70, it brings it home quite hard.
    Will I ever see the Tories out of government? An old man must have dreams……
