Always hard, those last few weeks in a job you know you're leaving.

Not really ...that's not close to finishing. In my case it's the apparent slowing down of time that occurs towards the end date that frustrates.

I've never really had more than a 1-2 year plan in any job I've worked, so your comment would not apply to me. What will I be doing in 2 years? Don't know.

Well it was mostly tongue in cheek, but owing to the state of SA business there is little doubt that this is my last job.

Doesnt help that every crappy job is suddenly being dropped on my desk. The only thing that is keeping me going is eternal optimism & Jack Daniels.

I can get used to this retirement thing. fishing
Being kept busy running my friend around because she can no longer drive because of the medication she is taking but apart from that the lack of daily stress is wonderful. Still waking at 4.15am, out of habit i guess, but i guess that will change. Cool

Good for you. I too found the sleeping pattern was hard to change. For decades I woke around 5, had a few espressos, heaps of fogs and got stuck into the reading before heading in to work. I now make 6.30 Most days.

I am now about to do a mix of paid and unpaid work. Both part time and with organisations and people I respect. I am old fashioned and find I need and enjoy working life. Still allows more time for other activities than I used to have when I was doing crazy hours in a difficult working environment

Absolute word. I have the same trouble. I still regularly wake well before 6.00 am. It's heaven when I look at my bed clock and the time is after 7.00 or even 8.00 am. I rarely get to bed before 11.30 pm.

My friend was released from Hospital about three weeks ago but i had to call Ambulance today. Cancer has spread to her spine & she can no longer move. I don't think she will see home again.
