Last day at work

[FONT=&quot]After nigh on 45 Years of uninterupted employment today is my last working day before retirement :-D:-D.[/FONT]
[FONT=&quot]Now clearing up my desk and handing over to my replacement strange feeling.:shock:[/FONT]
Congratulations. It is weird not having to set an alarm clock and you won't have as much time to do things as you might imagine. :)

Enjoy it.
Thanks NMC. I just may set the alarm as usual, Just so I can roll over and go back to sleep:-D.

As long as i have time for the important things in life ( Golf, Fishing etc. ) :-D:-D
I recall the Canadian comedian Kelly Montieff (spelling?) doing a sketch on retirement. All your working life you invariably have to get up early before your body is ready and use public transport to go to work. What happens when you retire? Your company gives you an alarm clock and the Government gives you a free bus pass. I do like irony. But what I like more is Kelly's wife in the series. Gabrielle Drake....

Showing ones age here.

Have fun and keep busy in your retirement AC.
Happy retirement Andy.As others have intimated word will soon get round that you have time on your hands and the suggestions for filling it will come flooding in.Fishing and Golf........Ha you'll be lucky.

Retired in June, the list of jobs on the fridge door gets longer instead of shorter (it all depends on where SWMBO keeps the list) enjoy your retirement and may it be a long and happy one...
Thanks for all the good wishes.

After a getting up late ( about 30mins later than usual ):-D and a good read of the nespaper over breakfast, SWMBO made the following announcement:

Have a nice quiet day and enjoy your retirement, I will knock up a to do list for you

in case you get bored sitting around :wtf:.

Just been informed that my " quiet day " means I get to look after the 2 grandchildren ( 3 and 6 ) while the ladies go shopping

"Sighs and looks longingly at his golf clubs":-|:-|
Just remember the downside of retirement, while those who work for a living can look forward to their holidays and time off you can't. Real bastard isn't it?:-D:-D:-D:-D:-D

Just to soften the blow of not being allowed to work anymore :-D I invested in one of these
babys and have been Traveling all over europe with SWMBO for the last 2 weeks ( brilliant ) :laughing2::laughing2:
