      I am in a dilemma, we (my husband and i) have a 5 year plan, of sorts, to retire fully in 5 years time. We are directors of our own business, and have stepped back a little. I still manage the finances and involved in decision making, but it’s a worry, do we sell? Will there be enough to fund our retirement? These are rhetorical questions really as I know the answers! Has anyone else done this?

      Thank you for your kind and helpful words. Definitely practicable. Am a key worker during this virus period and it’s tough going!

      OMG John I know how you feel.  I opted out before retirement age as I just couldn’t do it any more.

      What helped me in the latter stages of permanent full time work was to think of it as a rolling 6 month contract.  A month before the 6 month point, Id ask myself whether I wanted to sign up for another 6 months and if I did, what did I want to get out of that time/ what would I do differently.

      Psychologically it broke down the ‘stretch’ into more manageable chunks.

      I also started to ease off a bit e.g. not working beyond 6 pm every day, not taking work home, trying not to get mad about things that I had no chance of influencing at work.

      Anyway, sharing your pain and wishing you a happy 6 years …or maybe less !!!

      Im afraid that is life!

      Many of us work to live but on the occasion’s where we like the job as well, that is a very fortunate position! Make the best and most of the next six years.
