Now there’s a question?
Well apart from “Wear more Sunscreen”, that’s a very good question isn’t it?
And one I’m sure we all ask ourselves when we get to a certain vintage.
For the past few years on that date I’ve been getting a number of marvelous congratulatory messages via social media — as well as some expressing a certain incredulity, along the following lines, or similar — “What, you still alive, how did you manage that???”
Clearly some people have no faith! And it’s even more disconcerting when one of those people is actually your Mother!!
Anyway it’s got me to thinking what might be the advice I would give a younger me — around say when I was 18 years of age, or there abouts.
A time in the UK, when you’ve completed your A’ Levels and will be preparing perhaps for University. Or, about to take a ‘gap year’. Or, in my case back in the 1970’s, just about to join the world of work (sort of) and begin my training as a fledgling newpaper reporter — As Lord Denning, then ‘Master of The Rolls’, described me one bright morning at London’s Central Criminal Court of England & Wales, or the ‘Old Bailey’, as it’s more affectiionately known by those in the dock!

So, what advice would you give the Younger You?
Make it good and I might even Tweet it 🙂
