OK, let's be honest, sitting watching the small frogs skittering across the pond amongst the water lilies, reading the Guardian, drinking Fairtrade coffee and it's sunny, I do feel smug. More revelations about phone hacking, were The Met involved? the demise and disgrace of a paper that too often hated and lied about the things I care about, what's not to feel a bit smug about? Volunteering is about working with people that the tabloids denigrate as well as the soft easy stuff. We sixties baby boomers with our index linked pensions do have a lot to be grateful for, but without us where would my small society be?
