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.
