Monthly premium bonds draw, semi-retirement plans still a work in progress and another margin session in clear, shallow water

We do need to get something though because it’s our retirement investment and especially at the moment, while I’m still working through the practicalities of semi-retirement, the additional income is essential.

Although I took the step of backing away from full-time work last spring, I still need to cross a ‘t’ here and there and dot an occasional ‘i’.

There’s a lot already sorted though, for example I won’t be going back full-time, even though I have a never-say-never voice in the back of my mind.

Recently, I was asked about a job working in football media.

Although it was exactly double the salary I was on when I was full-time at The New Saints, my head wasn’t turned.
