Retirement is hard work

This retirement lark is hard work.

I used to laugh when people who had retired told me they wondered how they had time to work, now I know what they mean.

Some things are not going as planned. For a start I planned to cut down on computers, well currently I have one more than I had at retirement.

My displeasure at gardening is legendary, guess what, we have spent a fortune on having the garden cleared and turfed. The result being that the wife has informed me that the garden will be my 2018 project!! I can’t wait. The whole thing must have put me in shock, I ordered a lawn mower today.

Other than that it’s going fine, I think.

Do any of you have tales of starting retirement and it not being as planned? If so I would love to hear.
