Early Retirement

Early retirement ..... I can't believe that is the thing I am fast coming up on. My husband Kevin takes early retirement from the Fire Service in November this year. He has been working full time since he was 16 and at times working all hours to provide a good home. He has always given us the best he could and worked all hours to do that.

He has had a long career in the Fire Service and I think he is ready to sit back and watch the grass grow.
So we are going into a new part of life and I think we will need to adjust to that. I will have to get used to losing my three nights a week that I have the house, television and bed to myself lol.
I hope we can enjoy our life without worry of mortgage and bringing up our family. I always think that I would still live life the same, if I could do it over and have no regrets about having a family young.
Now both my children are grown and we are still fairly young!!

So no set in stone plans as yet. We have not had a holiday for a long time so that would be nice. I would love to visit my nephew and his family in Canada and my friend Janie. Then to move on to America which I love and visit my many friends like April and Darian.

So watch this space as I enter a new exciting life and maybe lots of blog post to reflect that.
