Well this is not going to be much of an entry because life seems to be so busy. Retirement is such hard work. When you struggling to get into work each day and you dream of retirement and having all the time in the world, but when you get there, you lack the structure of working schedules so you think 'I have plenty of time, I'll just enjoy sitting down with my breakfast and relax' and suddenly it is lunchtime and you have done nothing with your day at all. Throw hospital appointments into the mix, as you get older they get more frequent, and you have lost even more time.
So this week we have been all the way from North Wales to Sheffield for a hospital appointment for the man, effectively two whole days worth, we stayed with our daughter in Doncaster on Sunday night, so yesterday I was still finishing the 70th birthday card which has to be taken away with us tomorrow. It is actually finished and on my worktop with loads of junk and a couple of other cards I had to have done by today.
The card at the bottom is for my son in law and this is a better picture of it.
He really is wonderful at Tech support, formerly a rocket scientist and now a vicar.
Must stop now, going to Netherlands for the 70th birthday party tomorrow and not got anywhere near finished packing.
