    in 14 work days i will be officially listing my occupation as spoiling the grandchildren!
    after 40 years of work (navy) and civilian job its time to relax and let the youngsters climb the poles
    got a good bit sacked away in savings accounts so i'll have no worries.

    Good man - especially for making sure you have income for your retirement.

    Youngsters take note! You have been warned.

    Yes, well done and enjoy. I jumped out over a year ago (still do the odd job for beer vouchers;)).
    The best bit is when people phone you up trying to sell you stuff, or they have a great phone upgrade deal, or conning you that they 'need an electrician in xxx'. When you say you have now retired, they just go away.

    Enjoy your free time lol. Guess at least you can spoil the grand children and get them all worked up before handing them back to the parents. Seems like you have it all worked out good luck and I wish you all the best for your retirement.

    I retired 2 years ago after 50 years in Electricity Supply Industry, enjoyed every minute of it, never dreaded going to work, but half century is enough! We have just been presented with first grandchild, so easing into that, but xyl has 3 horses and still works part time, so I am now an Equine Excrement Re-Location Operative. That's right, I shovel horse s***.
