This is Frances’ last day at work she retires today. I think that I have also retired; well sort of as I will be consulting but not working fixed hours. So Frances goes out with a bang, a clean break, now she’s working and then now she’s not. I on the other hand go out with a whimper, now I am sort of working and then I am sort of working. As it was we were neither boating nor working so now we can focus on the boating, for a while at any rate.

So from now on we can drop the semi from semi retired and join the waterways adventure full time.

I have just discovered a further over 60’s benefit, the B& Q discount Wednesday for the over 60’s. So I am now a B&Q discount card carrier, is there no end to this, ok I saved £1 today but we are always going to B& Q for bits and pieces. Before too long I will need a trolley to carry my complimentary passes and cards.

I have repaired the toilet at home and I am now resealing the shower, right you all want to know about this, no? Just let me say that I will be glad that it is out of the way so we can start on the boat modifications.
