I work as a teaching assistant in a primary school. Today I have been working with the reception children discussing what they will be doing on this day in twenty years time, as they are young they are all thinking about their careers and whether they will have a family of their own to look after. In twenty years time they will be in their prime and the world is their oyster, I on the other hand will be approaching the twilight years of my life. In twenty years time I will be 64, I shall be retired and hopefully even busier than I am now. I hope my children will be happy and settled in their lives leaving my husband and I to visit the long list of art galleries we have promised to visit before our time is up. I hope we will have world peace, no famine and that we are out of this recession, who knows. What I do know is that I shall still be smiling and making the most of this gift of life.
