People say “It must be great now that you have both retired, you can do just what you want, whenever you want”!

Believe me as a pensioner in the know!  My calendar is just as full as ever, and the days that we haven’t got booked up, we daren’t use at the moment because we are waiting for Hospital appointments, we seem to be waiting on the whim of everyone else.

Aunty Pat who lives in Italy has just rung to tell us that she wants to come in June!  We are fending her off in case my Other Half’s operation is delayed until late May, early June.  We still haven’t had confirmation of a date, nor for the tests that the hospital want before they admit him again.  Apparently June would suit her, it might well suit us but we don’t know

Basically we are in limbo.

The life of a Pensioner!
