Today I am truly feeling the run up to my early retirement. For all my life it seems I have been working for the material things needed by myself and others. Two and a half more teaching days, or six days to go and then I shall be mistress of my own destiny. I am more than a little frightened of the financial implications, but confident that I can make a go of it. So looking forward to being able to smell the roses - and write about them too!
Since 1980, my life has been ruled by bells and timetables, deadlines for reports and stocktakes, I have grown tired of seeing good manners greeted by indifference at best, suspicion at worst - and having to put up with the passive aggressive behaviour of others.... and for Heavens sake, that is only the (professional) adults! Anyway, as I write this I am still aware I have a LOT of paperwork to do before term ends, a couple of student guitars still to repair and some timetables to reorganise for next week. Roll on freedom, an abundance of time and all the lovely things that will go with it!
