(Surrey, BC Canada)
Never wanted to retire. At age 60 I went to part-time, I really liked my job and it was enough to make some extra money. Cuz I could not live on old age pension.
At age 69, he laid me off. I was upset and a little mad but also excited about having time off.
First day off, I baked all day, second day off, cleaned the whole house, third day off I was bored. I’m lucky in some ways, I have a dog I walk 2 hours a day and I also started going back to the gym which I love. So trying to fill up my days. I also take a lot of naps as I love to sleep.
But do feel kind of lost and hopeless some days and keep thinking about looking for another small part time job not sure what to do. My health is very good and I’m fit.
Got laid off the end of December so not much to do in the winter. I’m hoping I’ll have way more to do when summer comes and I can garden and go out more.
Had to give up my car as can’t afford it now so that is limiting me. My husband works three days a week part time so I can use his car when he isn’t using it so not so bad.
