      Hi Julie, welcome to this community – I retired in 2020 just as the first lockdown was announced so retirement turned out completely different to everything I had planned. However, I love having the time to do the things I really like, so with a bit of luck, once your arm has healed, you’ll have a similar experience.
      Good luck!

      Hi Julie I don’t think a lot of people planned their retirement it just came for different reasons with this pandemic, but you manage to go with it. I hope your arm heals soon and you enjoy your retirement.

      Hi Julie. I was made redundant at the end of 2020 as work dried up due to the pandemic. I had been working from home which I found very isolating. Now I can stay in bed, go out, watch tv all day, go to the cinema – whatever I chose… the best thing is no work stress… just stress from other things. I’m still not used to not working. I wake and think oh, it’s Sunday, I don’t have to get up…when really it’s a Tuesday or a Friday and I think what am I going to do today? On the positive side when I think of somewhere to go I love my life. I have lots of coffees out…not always, but most of the time on my own. Getting old isn’t much fun so do as much as you can while you can.
