I retired from paid employment in 2011 with the NHS in Procurement. At first I wondered what I would do with my time but now I wonder where all my free time is! I volunteer with the local community-run shop, serving behind the counter and also dealing with the admin for the newspaper and magazine orders. I also volunteer with the local library, delivering books to an elderly housebound lady of 94! I write short stories mainly but am also trying to write a book. I play tennis, cycle and walk. My wife and I run a local board games session monthly and are members of a local U3A games group.
