I retired 13 years ago and I am still only 27! ( I did go a bit early).. now every day is a Saturday. Without getting boring, being retired is very, very, different to being at work. Sounds like b,,,,,,, obvious but if you don't think about how you are going to manage your time, your finances and your relationships you can fall flat on your face.
One example.... when you are working full time your life is ruled mainly by others and events, which you have little control over. You get used to going with the flow.Your days are filled for you. When you are retired every day is your's to fill. The decisions on what you do next are largely your's and your's alone. Without stuff to fill each and every day, life can meander, perhaps a little aimlessly , and then........
Anyway enough of that... off to see youngest Great Niece, she's 8 months old and she's cooking me lunch.
