This chap I was getting to know asked me what I did or was (terms that tend to be used interchangeably) and I did my usual cagey thing and said I was a full-time carer and past the age of retirement anyway- but he continued looking at me as if expecting more- so I mentally kicked myself and told myself to play fair and said, "Well, I was a clergyman but I gave it up and I've been a freelance journalist and a lollipop man." I stopped there but I could have gone on because I've done rather a lot of different things in my life.

And why be cagey about them? What am I protecting myself from? I was thinking only the other day that I could now add "landowner" to the list. It's all experience, it's all good. I'm not ashamed of any of it.
