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.

    Welcome to the ranks of the totally retired, Frances. I’m sure that in a few weeks you will wonder how you ever had time to go to work! Enjoy your retirement, and hopefully we will meet up on the cut some day.

    You can’t beat getting paid for not actually going to work, and the bus pass is worth £thousands! Congratulations on boating full time. If you make it to Gas Street, please come and see us.

    Yes we will be up to Gas street at some time maybe towards the end of the year.
