Funny you should say that Alpen because I haven’t retired (46) but been working from home for my four days a week. I only go into the office on an ad-hoc basis to deliver a briefing or get updated on my laptop. But - I might be about to quit. Hubby & I commute together as we both work at the same site 50 mins drive from home. He has got a promotion and will be mostly working from home in the future. As I get a lot of fatigue we both know I won’t cope with working back at the office and driving myself (I sleep in the car both ways some days). So this might be an enforced retirement without the pension for now. I’ll look for something local. So, not retired yet, and no pension yet, but I might soon be a 1950s housewife and start darning socks and growing veg. Anyone done anything similar with any tips let me know!

I managed to not work from the age of 42 and managed to survive without a pension. Not sure how now really, I think I took in foreign students (not available at the moment), the odd paying guest and some savings. Getting rid of the mortgage helps greatly too.
