A brief bit about me. I took voluntary redundancy from a company I worked for last year (2016) with the view to phasing in early retirement. Things at the moment are going to plan. Retiring from the workplace can be a shock to the system if you haven't had total freedom before. Luckily I've taken to it like the proverbial duck out of water.

I have lots of interests, some of which are; online chess, reading, motorcycling. The reason I joined this site is to have more people to chat to who are of a similar age and maybe swop ideas on life in general.
Have a nice day.

    Retirement can be a very difficult time, but it sounds like you have worked it out really well Steve. Having a few hobbies and interests always helps but a sense of purpose is also important, I find.....

    Sorry for my tardy response. Welcome to the club of active retirement Steve. I keep so busy I wonder I ever had the time to go out to pursue a working career. As long as you continues keeping mind and body active and interested each and every day, all will be well.
