THE WORD FOR THIS WEEK....

... in Alshas Word Photo Challenge 2016 (www.alshasspace.blogspot.com) is THANKFUL...... once again she has made us stretch the grey matter!

After some deliberation I decided on ..


....this little hanging was given to me when I retired... it hangs in my kitchen and I look at and bless the saying MANY times every day xx

I am thankful that I payed into my NHS pension for 40 years and that allowed me to retire at 59 and be comfortable without having to slog until I am 66 .. when the Government have decided they will pay my State pension... I am thankful that I now have the TIME (that's a laugh!!) to craft and be there for my family instead of saying .. mm I will have to see if I am working before making commitments x I am thankful to be able to spend holidays and Christmas with my family ...

I COULD go on .. but I am sure you get the picture xx BIG smiley face here xx

You have a wonderful attitude to life and I know exactly what you mean.
I enjoy every day to the max and I am so grateful too. Retirement was a long time coming but it is whizzing by now that it's here.
Quilt workshop today and I fly to family in Germany tomorrow so what could be better.
Enjoy whatever you are doing, I am sure you will.

Amen to that! My friend says these are the go-go years. Next come the slow-go years and eventually the no-go years. So let's all make the best of these years!!!
