I've been retired for a year now and slowly getting used to doing things that aren't 'important'. it's a struggle but I'm getting there! I've got two grandchildren and a daughter and son-in-law who live 2 minutes walk away - this is a blessing/not a blessing, depending on the situation! I live very near the sea so spend a lot of time walking along the beach/promenade. Having nearly got used to retirement, I would like to branch out and meet or chat to like minded people in my area.
