Ten, nine, eight, seven...

I realise that this may seem like a lo-o-ng countdown to retirement (thank you for your good wishes on this momentous development in my life) but... one more day to go. Or in fact, half a day. And then I'll be an OAP.

And the cats and I can sit around all day, snoozing.

Well, possibly the cats may do this more than I do. But still. Freedom. Ish.


Mind you, there's a minor snag. I found the other day that my purse was rather empty. "Oh dear," I said. "I don't have much money."

"Better get used to it, dear," said Mr Life.

Just you wait until term starts again and you don't have to get up and go to work - that is a GOOD feeling :) And a new grand-child too, what perfect timing. Enjoy! And money is over-rated anyway :)

I'll bet you'll find lots to do in your retirement. Congratulations!

Enjoy your wonderful, and much deserved, time at home. Congratulations!

You and the cats snoozing together - what a delightful thought. Our cat is currently the last family member out get out of bed of a morning. It makes it much harder for me to force my way out when he is still snuggled in my bed looking tired!

Very best wishes for your retirement and Grandmotherhood. How lovely to have both together - great family planning!

You will not have any more time - work expands to fill the time available. But the pace and rhythym of life will change, hopefully for the better!

Enjoy.

You don't think you're going to have time to snooze do you? But I'm sure you're going to love it.

Ho ho ho!! You will learn very fast how to budget, believe me! But Jinksy is right - money can't compensate for the time you can now call your own, that you can share with your family or not, depending on what each day brings.

You are officially retired now! Well, I assume so as it is 17:11. I can't wait to read about everything you will cram into your days. And it is summer. The garden will be calling....

Happy Retirement!!
