People have always said that when they retired they didn't know how they ever managed to find time to work and after 2.5 months I can quite see what they mean.
Since I retired at the beginning of September I have had my son and daughter in law over from Hawaii for a 2 weeks holiday, a new baby granddaughter born at the beginning of November, joined U3A and go to a Family History group each month and also a card making group each month and also set this blog up..
What has taken more time than anything has been card making as I am running a card stall twice a month at Church to help raise funds for the repair, restoration and re-ordering of the church I attend in Cuckfield, Holy Trinity. Last Saturday I sold over 50 cards at my stall that I ran whilst there was a fundraising pianothon going on; I now have to try to make good my stock before this Saturday when there is a sale at the local primary school. I am quite pleased it is only a 2 hour sale and not the 12 hours of last weekend!!!
