Happy New Year!
I wish you health and happiness for 2008.
Do you feel different today - hangover excluded? Those 2008 NYR's are brightly glowing, fresh with our good intentions that this year will indeed be very different. I do hope your shiny new resolutions don't fade away too quickly ;-)!
Do I feel different today? Well, I certainly look different thanks to this odd sock Christmas pressie from my friends Steve and Lu in Corsham. But I do feel different too, because today's a major life milestone for me - I've retired :0
I was due to go back to work tomorrow, following my 7 month career break, but happily I'm not. I'm a bit too young to be taking my pension yet, so I'm actually going to describe myself as Not Working rather than Retired. Therefore, this major event needs something a bit more life changing than the kind of NYRs I described yesterday. I've a few ideas, but caring commitments lately means I've not thought them through sufficiently yet. So, I'm not going to tell you what they are today - like Gardenpunks, I may post them up on 43things.com so they're more visible, but rest assured dear reader, you'll get to hear about them here first.
