I feel very lucky I was born early enough to have a house and a stable job that has weathered both of these. Next on the list, the consequences of climate change and unsustainable living, well they say bad luck comes in groups of three. There is a whole generation who have been punished for being born at the wrong time.
Get a bit of balance. We came up through inadequately heated houses, crap TV, 10 pm pub shutting, prog rock, Thatcher and hill gear that weighed a ton even before it got soaking, which it did without fail. And don't get me started on uniformly dire keg beer (Younger's Tartan "Your beer is good!") or the state of the toilets at Hampden. We'd have welcomed a pandemic for a bit of interest in our grey lives!
