Retirement is a big step. You may plan to spend all your time on the golf course or in your garden but what happens in the winter? I retired last year at the age of 65 and while I felt it was the right time to quit my job I quickly became bored. I had always enjoyed working, perhaps not the 7 a.m. starts but I definitely missed the companionship and felt there had to be something between paid employment and a care home.
I have been trying to increase my income from working online and finding I am enjoying the challenge of learning new skills. I think it is important to try to keep an active mind in an active body. I have also become a grandmother. I want to share my journey hopefully for a good few years.
