The First Step .....

I started a life changing process today - I sent off the forms to start off the procedure for my early retirement. It's always seemed so far off, yet now it's only just over three months until until I finish work as a Staff Nurse in mental health - after 31 years! Those years have gone really fast and I've enjoyed most of them and feel I have done something useful in my working life and have helped people get their lives back on track.

But now I am ready to leave, it can be very stressful work and it's time for me to move on from that. So, though the thought of not being a working person anymore and having less money is a bit scary, the main feeling I have about my retirement is one of excitement about moving on to a whole new life.


  1. Good for you, Sue! Great attitude and I hope retirement brings you a much happiness as you deserve!! XX
