    At last, after watching my signature count down for the last 3 months I finally finished work yesterday and am now officially "retired", life is too short to keep on working :BigGrin:
    What a brilliant way to start my big adventure with a weekend at Peterborough :thumb:
    I'll be the one wandering around with a big grin on my face and probably a brandy and lemonade in one hand as evening arrives :Rofl1:
    Just 2 weeks until we leave for the Eurotunnel and whatever adventures await the other side :BigGrin::BigGrin::BigGrin:

    Congratulations, have a fantastic time. I have several years left until I can also be in this enviable position but I am definitely considering something along the same lines. Keep us updated with your travels :BigGrin:

    It was always my plan to retire when I was 50. With only about 8 months to go it ain't going to happen now:Sad:

    More like 75( God willing).:Doh:

    Don't worry, just adjust the goal post slightly and keep aiming. I have a funeral to go to next week for a work mate who was only 51. He was in the office when I went on holiday in March and when I came back I was told he was terminally ill. He died last Saturday, absolutely shocking the speed of it all. If I had any doubts about giving up my job before and going on this crazy adventure then I don't now. It's amazing how little money you actually need and there's always workaway and workx if funds dip! :BigGrin:

    Greetings,

    As the recently retired Archbishop of Canterbury said to Wogan on his radio programme.

    "Retirement. It's twice the fun on half the money":thumb:

    And, do you know, he's not wrong. Enjoy.

    I might have to amend the toast slightly as I am too young to get a pension. Not sure if that warrants a smiley or a sad face :Rofl1:
