Today is my last working day.
I officially retire on 1st August but a combination of leave and phased retiral means I finish today. For the last 36 years I have been working in Administration in the NHS mostly within Mental Health in Lanarkshire.
My friends cruelly say that my job is to count the paperclips. Well someone has to! Believe it or not there is slightly more to it than that.
By and large I have largely enjoyed my work. I will miss the camaraderie and the laughs with my colleagues and many aspects of my role. I will not miss the largely unnecessary scrutiny, having to get up at 6.30 and the winter commute.
I don't think I'll be bored. I've plenty to do including devoting a bit more time to the blog with one or two new series in the pipeline.
