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

The whole point of going part-time was to enjoy the semi-retired life.

Fishing, birding, pottering around the garden, all things that I did anyway but I can do more of now.

Plus, I’m not having to fit everything in around work.

Which brings me to this morning’s angling session, where I fancied another hour or so at first light in the margin of a pool.

If I wanted to though, I could have gone somewhere for the day without having a work schedule or the need to check emails.

That’s the difference between now and then, it’s all about quality of life.
