Yes it is. My C5 is over £300 now but the wife's is less, probably because I'm over 80, she is still a youngster in her '70s.

I remember dad going bonkers when he had a significant premium hike once he passed 80... Until then I never appreciated this and assumed the older you got the cheaper it would be...

Something dad never suffered from, just like you Peter ;) In fact dad was mentally sharper in his 90s than I've ever been :lol:

When we were in Scotland a few years my wife was reading from a Woman's magazine : 8 signs of altzimers disease I had six of them - but I have always had them. :)

:lol: I bet I've got seven!!!

Seriously, back when I was ill and my cognitive dysfunction was at its height and my short-term/working memory almost non-existent I was fully tested for early-onset Alzheimer's...

Happily, there's no trace but I still have a diagnosis of MCI (Mild Cognitive Impairment)...

Again, since what happened in March it has improved immeasurably :D Currently I'm better now than I have been for many years...

This time last year I'd not have been able to read, enjoy and post on this forum. That's the extent of my recovery!

Very pleased to hear it Jim. You certainly sound better, its all those endorphins. My brain frequently goes into standby and its difficult to turn it off and on again.
