So, the question is will I survive it? I retired on the grounds of ill health four years ago, thinking of how great it would be and looking forward to having all my time to myself. I had a to do list as long as my sons legs (he is 6’6"). Now here’s the thing. Fast forward four years and I am bored sh**less, the list is just about done and there is only so much Jeremy Kyle a sane person can take. So, I decided to take a punt and see if anyone would take me on. Much to my surprise I got an interview off my first application, even more of a surprise was a telephone call later the same day offering me the job. It’s with Citizens Advice and I’m a Hospital Outreach worker, only for two days a week but hey, it’s a start. I go to two hospitals in Aberdeen, a day in each, and sort out any problems patients being discharged have. Pretty much dealing with Housing, PIP, Attendance Allowance etc etc. It’s pretty interesting but knackering. I am absolutely done each day but to be honest I would rather peg out trying to do something as opposed to living an extra ten years sitting watching Judge Judy. God knows how long I will last but it’s made me feel better about myself. That’s a start.
