    I've found that the longer I'm retired, the more comfortable I become with the free time. At first I felt guilty at not working and having days when I didn't do much but I'm over that now. Winter has been harder because of the weather and short days. I've also got divorced after 42 years of marriage so had to adjust to being totally independent and 'on my own'.

    Money, or 'lack of' is my biggest worry as I have a small mortgage etc but I keep a strict check on spending and so far so good. There are a few cutbacks I could make like getting rid of the car, dental insurance, Top Up TV, etc.

    Do you know what you're anxious about ? maybe if you can identify the negative bits it would help.

    I'm lucky having loads of grandchildren living locally.......nothing like kids to put life in perspective and give you a big cuddle to cheer you up.

    Admit it. You spoil them rotten, pack them full of sugar, then send them back to their parents.

    SUGAR ....tut , tut.....yesterday I bought the little ones who live locally some strawberrys. ....sometimes I buy grapes. I did buy some organic Ginger Bread men though

    Everything else you said is right though !

    The teenage girls are taken out for shopping and a coffee / lunch....the 12 yr old boys just like beating me at playstation games......I'm getting better though.
