Yes, I do have a plan
I'm 3 days into the new term and I have already been asked several times if I know when I'm retiring yet! The answer is yes I do. Although I don't know when but I do know how. I have a plan that's been formulating in my head since we came back from Australia.
First, I need to finish bringing my house up to date and making it sale worthy (on a budget) so I'm spending my cash and time on all those DIY jobs. I'm working on a list of jobs to do and a schedule to do them.
Second, we will sell both of our houses and buy one together 😊😊😊 We have already looked online at the areas and types of property we like. We've drawn up a wish list of non negotiable items. Large garage/workshop for him, large kitchen with Aga for me (I really miss my Aga). Space to keep a campervan. Garden/land for polytunnel and chickens.
Third, reduce my working week to 3 days.
Fourth, OH retires then I retire!
We both want to retire from our current jobs but actually we're open to still working in some other part time capacity. We both have interests and passions that we could pursue that would generate an income. Neither of us is the type to sit and do nothing!
So 3 days into the term and all is going well. I have 2 new pupils who have settled into the class nicely but I'm getting another one next week that is going to change all that *sighs*
My classroom is still not fully set up but I'm gradually unpacking everything. Hopefully it'll be finished in time for the Meet the Teacher event next week!
