How do you have a Day Off when you are retired? Most people who are still working think that retirees have it easy; after all, every day is time off to do what you want. That is true in one sense but not another, because there are always chores to do. For one reason and another (too complex to go into) – I ended up with a kind of mumpty-numpety week, and the only thing to do was to declare some time off.
I stayed away from the computer, stuck my head in a saga about the First World War, hid indoors from the rain, watched a movie and generally kept my head down. Result? Well, today the world looks a better place. The plumber has come to fix a WC cistern that took forever to fill and the washing machine is doing today’s workload for me. As a bonus the plumber had tales to tell of pine martens, woodpeckers, blue jays and kingfishers
Son #1 and his entourage are coming for a camp out tomorrow and things are looking much brighter. What do you like to do with your Day Off?
