I retired last October. I must admit I didn't handle it well, I missed my colleagues and people in my care. I had worked in a Day Centre for people with learning disabilities for 23 years. I was at a loss - coming up to my 66th birthday I felt useless.
...but now I do volunteering at our local food bank and a few hours at Red Cross mobility aids.
I enjoy walking so set my self the challenge of walking 1000 miles in a year . Since 1st of Jan I've walked 724 miles. I am now embracing retirement have two close friends who have retired. My partner is still working as he is younger than me .
So retirement is all good and I'm looking forward to being part of senior Chatters.
