    It would be good to retire, but personally speaking, I think so many of us would be bored. Most people have such active lives these days, but in the vackground we have the routine of work to keep us functioning on a daily basis. Yes, it would be a novelty to just get up and do what we like when we like and not worry about the financial side of things, but ultimately we need some sort of structure and that will always be the
    downside of retirement. It doesnt stop us wanting it though.

    I hope you enjoy your retirement Johnny.

    if you ever get really bored and fancy doing a bit of 'charity' work, you can do my job whilst I do a study of the inside of my eyelids ;-)
