I claimed my State Pension from HMG, and it came through yesterday. It's a lot more than I expected - it's nearly ten times as much as I got paid the first year I worked, in 1968. Almost enough for one of my daughters to have a night out.
Ladysolly also gets a pension; between us, I think we probably get enough to live on, provided we didn't need to pay a mortgage, didn't run a car and didn't heat our home. Fortunately, we don't have a mortgage, I have a bike and our love keeps us warm.
