[SAND's "Future Proofing" afternoon] was instructive, irrespective of whether or not much of it applied directly to me. As with the second case example, I live alone - in my case, in rented accommodation in the form of a bungalow. Technically, I'm bisexual, but have not been in a regular relationship for many years. With very limited resources I'm conscious of the need to keep fuel bills to a minimum. As and when finances allow, I like to use the theatre and cinema. As a singer I have joined a good choir in Shrewsbury, which offers both excellent repertoire under a superb musical director, and also companionship. I haven't driven for years, so rely mainly on public transport. Fortunately, walking from my place into town (Shrewsbury) is perfectly manageable. Neighbours are friendly, some to the point of being extremely helpful - especially to one who is not of a practical bent!
