Two months after my 35th birthday I suddenly had the oddest feeling that I was exactly halfway through my life. I'll have to wait and see! I just hope neither of the DGC are doing important exams whenever the time comes.
Strangely I have the opposite. I’m pretty sure i’ll Reach at least 100! I’m careful to pay up my pension and take care of my physical health because although I have no desire to give up work or retire before I lose my health, I think even if I work to 70 i’ll Still have at least 30 years left! My paternal grandmother lived to 99. I may be completely wrong of course but think I may as well plan for the best and if I go sooner at least i’ll Be a lovely fit-looking corpse! Lol.
I also have a feeling ill die younger than 60. But i hate the thought of dying and leaving everyone around me and not being part of the world anymore. And then I think if my partner was to die first id hate that too because I'd miss him so much. Urgh getting old is not fun.
I'm so sure I won't reach retirement age that Ive just spent the past four and a half years on a career break and living off savings(original plan was 12 months) Did 20 odd years. Got another twenty odd to go. Was a nice little half time break but work beckons in the new year. The fact my mother and quite a few aunts got dementia in their late sixties played on my mind and I was determined not to be cheated out of the workfree sensation. I can die (early) happy now.
