What do you think of retirement, if you are not already retired, what do you think retirement will be when you do retire?

Retirement is not what I thought it would be, I can't tell you what I did think. :roll: Something about sleeping in LOL (try doing that with dogs that need to be walked :o )

But I Love retirement, I love my time being mine, not that I'm not busy, what I'm busy with I can't always tell you, but I would not trad retirement !

Sometimes the days go by slowly, but the weeks seem to fly by.

LOL, because you had to go to bed to get up in the morning to go to work, and now you don't have to ?????

Oh IC - I was born to be retired. This is the job I have looked for my whole life.

That being said - I am pretty self sufficient. I don't need a lot of company and have multiple hobbies and interests in my home that keep me happy. I like to keep house, I read a couple of books per week, embroider, quilt, crochet, and knit. I like to watch tv & movies and can entertain myself on the internet for hours. I play with my dog and sometimes just sit on the patio and listen to nature. All of which make me perfectly content.

I am lucky in that hubs and I are compatible - which makes all of the difference. I have lots of friends that I can get together with or can speak with on the phone. Plus I love to sleep.

I know if you are someone who requires a lot of interaction with others, then it may not be your cup of tea. But me - I have never been happier.

You nailed it about having a husband/partner you are compatible with...........that's key. Of course I'm not retired ....but thats through choice..............but I work such short hours, 6 hours a day with 13 weeks holidays a year that we can still do what we want holiday wise.

We like to travel, we can afford to, we both love to cook, we are both low cost re " stuff" and we have the same sense of humour.

Of course Dh IS retired, today , off to a National Trust property for the day ;)
