The joys of liv­ing alone

The Sunday Post (Newcastle) - - OPINION -

The num­ber of mid­dle-aged peo­ple liv­ing alone in the UK has jumped by about a half over the past two decades.

Are peo­ple be­com­ing more self­ish? Is life be­com­ing too hec­tic?

I meet so many peo­ple through work on a daily ba­sis that when I’ve had a re­ally busy day I love to go home and be on my own.

I never thought I would like liv­ing alone, but I love my peace and quiet.

We are all so con­nected in so many dif­fer­ent ways with tech­nol­ogy – some­times in the “real world” I sim­ply en­joy my own com­pany.

Some peace and quiet
