OUT OF THE NEST AT LAST

This little Blue Tit had flown the nest 5 min before i took this photo, and the other big step is today i have become a retired pensioner after 50 years of work......Both the little bird and myself start a new life.

  4. Good for you, getting retired! We deserve it after so long in the trenches!! You will find you have not enough time to do all the things you want to even if you don't have to work all day .... it's amazing to me how I worked and still managed to do so much "other stuff" .... and, I'm one of those ever so happily retired people .. probably would have been happy never to have worked at all... but, somebody had to do it to survive....

  9. Such a cute lot of fluffiness. Have fun in your retirement - time to do exactly what you want when you want :D)
    P.S. Love the blossoms on the branch next to baby bird.

  10. Great photo. Love the fluffy detai.

    And congrats on your retirement. I retired in 1999, then went back to work and RE-retired in 2008 after 41 years of working. I love absolutely everything about retirement except for one thing. When one is working, a week seems to take forever until one gets to the weekend (or what days one has off.) Since I've retired, it's November and all of a sudden it's May. How did that happen?

    But the best thing is that I can pretty much do what I want and not do what I don't want. The house is a mess. I stay up all night. I take photos, create art, read, take walks, watch old movies via the internet, play word and solitaire games online. And even though, once in a while, I must do some necessary task like laundry or grocery shopping, I'm happier than I've ever been.

    So ---do what you want and what makes you happy. You deserve it and the freedom it will bring you after 50 years of work.
