At 53, I have recently heard that my application for early redundancy/retirement has been accepted and I shall be leaving the rat race end August. At first I was jumping with joy having been (still am) in a job I have long since found equally dull And aggravating. But now it’s sunk in I don’t know what I am going to do with myself.
I’m a loner (though I am happily married) my husband retired some time ago and has his hobbies and interests which keep him occupied but, sadly, my life was mainly work and I can’t work out what to do next.
I don’t mix well, preferring small groups and I do have my darling dog, but I’d really like to be doing something which could provide an income in the future but I just don’t know what. Have any of you retired and gone on to develop a business? Or does anyone have any general advice?
