Been wanting to go back to work, but whenever I think that, I think do I really want to?
Started writing my novel - am on the first sentence after 3 weeks.
Autumn in the garden is a bit dull, you don't get any results from your work.
Vegetable patch ought to do nicely next year, though.
New GT novelty has worn off slightly, still a laugh though ....
Anyway Christmas is jsut round the corner ....

Are you really retired or just take a year off!!! Seems to me that you're just being a house husband for a while when Mrs Sas brings home the bacon!!!

WHS

Bored house husband bores CUK with his boring life.

Been through the same when between contracts - scared me a bit !
You get so used to fitting round a work schedule that you can get a bit lost when that is gone, also hard to enjoy the freetime when there is no contrast.
It's a bit sad really, just institutionalised from age of 4 to go out for the day to school/work.
Especially in winter, it can be grim and not like being a student cos all your mates are working and they dont live in your house !
Lots of hobbies needed I think, preferably some weather proof and some solitary...
Needs a definite plan, just drifting into it might not pan out for some.

Hobbies is the key, defo...you want to be so busy with your hobbies that work gets in the way, then when you end up out of contract it becomes an excellent opportunity to focus on them.

Train spotting for example...

Flip me - One sentence after 3 weeks?

When it's done, don't go and leave the unpublished manuscript on a PMQT (public quantum mass teleporter), or you'll have to start all over again and not finish it for _another_ 500 years! :laugh

The pig has been brought home and slaughtered. The bacon has been well and truly stored. There is no need for Mrs SAS to work either, except she loves it.

Or she at least loves going to work more than spending the entire day with you.
