    It's been a long time coming

    I joined this great forum in February 2010 and in all that time so much has happened to me, and I must say more good things then bad things.

    And here is the next big thing that is going to happen. This coming January 18th, I shall retire from paid employment. Our ten year plan has come to an end. Ok, a little later by 2 months but who's complaining. Emma will finish at the end of January and our new adventure will start.

    Where will our adventure take us, Europe or the Philippines? Who knows, but a holiday to the USA is on the board to see the east coast and the Canyon, plus what else we can throw in, in a month or so. The Philippines for a few months to finish off the house and to see if it's what I want to call home or to be used as just a base. Europe to see my mate and again could it be a place to call home or another base to come and visit every now and again. Who knows, but we shall have a great time looking at different places together.

    I shall be 60 years young and Emma well, it's rude to say her age. Hard work and lots of savings we both have done to achieve this and yes, I am looking forward to not having to live by the clock.

    As somebody who has already been able to throw off the 'yoke' Steve, may I wish you and yours the best of luck, and much happiness in your upcoming retirement. At 60, these days you're still a 'young un' , and hopefully still in good nick. It sounds like you have plenty planned to occupy your time... and that's the best way to handle the change, I reckon.

    Thought you'd already retired, looking at your Facebook pictures of your various days out.

    Thank you all, hopefully I can get back into my DIY and enjoying more time together rather then work, work, work.

    I am sure there will be more pictures on Facebook, Slip, of our new adventures.

    That's what's keeping me busy... DIY.

    Even made myself a 'fitted' armchair.

    Still for sale is it Steve? Last time I saw that lot, the kids were fishing in it.

    Again, thanks everyone. Not much to do but to count the days until I finish paid work. It's down to around 65 days now, I think.
