Who's still up and this hour.
« on: November 14, 2014, 03:27:55 am »

Hey who's up. I am bored at work. Getting fed up of humping Pallets in and out of machine. 57 and counting at the moment.

Retired at 57, have never stayed in bed past 0730, too much to do. How did I ever fit work in?


Dad, aged 96, still arises at 0700 every day. Must be in the genes  :}

Bed around 11, then up at around 1.30, 2.30, 3.45 and 6.15 before finally rising at 8.00. Can't remember the last time I slept right through the night - probably ten years ago.

I've heard people say they get bored being retired but I've never understood it, I retired in 2010 and absolutely love it, always up at 8 o clock dog sees to that, after taking dog out, spot of breakfast and if I do find nothing needs doing I've always got my boats to potter with in in my workshop, ahh bliss.   :-))

Neither do I {:-{ I am up at 6am each day, have breakfast, watch the TV sports news, then out into the veg garden for an hour before heading for my shed. I am usually back in bed by 10.30pm, and read for 15 or 20 minutes. A good night's sleep, then do it all over again. There's just not enough hours in the day {-)

Stop going on about retirement. I got at least another 35 years if they dont change the retirement age by then. Mind have just got 10 yr aniversery for working in company. So not so bad I guess.

I don't think there will be any such thing as retirement in another 35 years mate, it's not far off work till you drop now as it is  {:-{

Much the same here in Australia, too >>:-(  I'm just glad I got to retire when I wanted to, but I don't envy younger people.

I retired in August last year, at 67.  Felt I'd had enough.  Spent far too many years working mega hour weeks, especially when the family were growing up.  Did not take me long to adjust to the new schedule, including far too many home chores.  I seem to get less time for boat building now than before.  Life keeps me busy.

Well hopefully once my son is a little older I can do a bit more. I have no designated workspace so tend to do it on dining table. Means humping stuff out and putting it away again.

The only problem with being up & wide awake though the night is the people whining when you use have to use heavy machinery.  :-)

I was made redundant aged 61 when the building Company I worked for went into (planned) Bankruptcy. Chances of getting another Job then virtually Zero. Then the terrific guy at the Labour Exchange told me that I had worked long enough (43 years) to go into early retirement, first go on the Dole for 34 months then retire, this I did, some drop in income but not going to work saved loads of Money as I was driving 70 kms a day just to get to the Yard.
  Both my wife and I found Little Jobs to earn a bit extra, being a Brickie and Carpenter is a big help! We had 4 great extra years free together, toured on our Bike and spent Quality time together while we were fit enough to enjoy it. When the health problems began, for both of us, we had those years as Bonus. You have to look into the dark clouds, there is so often a plan B, or C hiding there!
