So, what can we do once we finally decide to retire and receive our pension. Take it from me, it will take some time to adjust – especially for you, your wife or partner and anyone else living in the household.
So how do you spend all this time you now find you have on your hands? Well, you can join one of the many clubs or organisations in your locality. You may like to volunteer in the community.
So what have you done in your retirement? How do you spend your time? Help us build a list so that others may take the plunge and ensure their retirement years are worthwhile and rewarding. We will provide links to their parent bodies of any organisations that are provided. Leave a comment to this post explaining the organisations you have joined. Here are a couple to start it off and click on the name to be taken to the parent body.
