Still not a stoic

Have you ever said to someone who asked you how you are: 'I feel old' and have them respond 'It's better than the alternative'(i.e. death) and felt like socking them in the jaw?

I would like to be a stoic, but I can't seem to manage it. Last night I was awake for three hours with aching legs and feet. 

This morning is foggy, and in London, too many MPs are behaving like ill-disciplined children at wet playime.

Be that as it may (lower case) we have had some fabulous sunny days this week and some stunning sunsets.

When I was driving home from Sheffield over the hills at 3 p.m. on Wednesday the sky looked like this:

and on our lane 90 minutes later it looked like this:

"Let’s love today, the what we have now, this day, not
          today or tomorrow or
yesterday, but this passing moment, that will
          not come again."

My 83 yo mum swears by magnesium for aching legs - Holland and Barrett - rubbed in at night.
