What do you do or intend to do in retirement?


I've often been asked ''What do you old folks do now thatyou're retired?'' Well I'm fortunate to have a chemical engineering background,and one of the things I enjoy most is turning beer,wine,scotch and margaritas into urine.

  • Not enough hours in the day sometimes but its a g&t for me everytime. Pete rarely drinks because he gets headaches so more for me then! Thanks for the laughter Richard. xxxxx :)

  • I am not allowed to drink,but I keep getting headaches from somewhere!!!!!!

  • Well I retire officially on Friday

    Although I haven't been able to work for eight years.

    We are suppose to have a barbecue tomorrow but I feel absolutely lousy.

    No energy, totally out of breath, a splitting headache because I've contracted something called Giant Cell Arteritus.

    Been on 70 mgs of steroids as treatment since mid December.

    Consequently my weight has ballooned up by 35 pound.

    And also caused by steroids is the diabetes and cataracts I was told yesterday I have.

    The normal pension is about 115 quid I believe but the government say 142 is what a single person needs to live on so they top it up with pension credit by about 27 quid.

    Pension Credit entitles you to housing benefit and rates relief automatically.

    Because I paid SERPS whatever that is for a long time, my pension is 187 a week I'm told so I no longer apply for Pension Credit , hence no housing or rates benefits.

    So I'm saying goodbye to about 50 quid a week.

    Coming after my DLA soon as well I believe.

    Last thing I needed on here today was a retirement topic Lol


  • Lots of us in same position having paid in to pensions etc so not allowed any benefits now, but don't let it get you down just think of the song Pack up your troubles in the old kit bag and smile, smile, smile.

    Hope you feel better to-day love & XXX,s
