I am now 64 and work part time. I contemplate retiring and would be financially OK. However, I already find it very hard to fill the days when I don't work despite being a hill walker, singer and having a number of retired friends. I can find voluntary work of course, lots of need here. I just can't deal with slowing down, relaxation, going to the cinema in the afternoon like the others. At the same time I feel permanently exhausted. Anyone else find the same? No grandchildren yet and not "broody" for them, although would help with care etc if needed.
Awful weather today, just off to an art exhibition but without enthusiasm. Anyone else feel the same or do you love and embrace retirement or part time working? Before I am flayed I realise that I am very fortunate to be financially stable. I feel I have some sort of personality deficit, seriously.
