Signs of ageing – Jerusalem in the afternoon


First the policemen look young. Then the teachers look young. Then I notice that my female contemporaries at conferences are wearing low heels or even flats. Now I’ve started to see the attraction of theatre matinee performances.


Coming out of “Jerusalem” – a funny and powerful play which will be picking up all the awards – at 5pm on Saturday, still in daylight and with plenty of evening still ahead, the pleasure of the performance is compounded by the thought of an early night.


I see there are loads of joke websites with “You know you’re getting old when ….” And more than a few of the gags would strike a familiar note among my colleagues.
