Good on ya Sue. Sweet dreams every night for the next six months.

That should take us up 'till August, five months after I finally retire from work for good!!

Well I think I deserve to put my feet up and get up a little later as I will 68 years old later on this year.

Best wishes
AO

I shall be retiring on the last day of the financial year Fiz. I believe that will be April 4th.

I shall be having a few beverages with my colleagues at a local bar after work on that day no doubt!!

I am so glad that you seem to be in a little better health Fiz.........keep up the good work my friend.

Best wishes
AO

Does anyone know where AO works and which HR dept is responsible for him?  I plan to send an anonymous letter with a forged birth certificate attached accusing them of giving him early retirement he's not entitled to because he's only 58.  That should ensure an ongoing supply of the links I depend on.

Failing that, I suppose I shall have to wish him happy retirement.    >hugs<
(I'm an obsessive problem-solver, so feel free to ignore any suggestions or solutions I offer, even if they sound terribly insistent.)

Hi Gang,
Please be assured that I shall continue to post every day the links and information that I have been posting over the past few years.
I believe that this site and all the good people who post here are the very best there is. For this reason I shall always be posting the same sort of stuff.
It is surprising how the Governments policy of transparency can be used to access the information you require, the trick is knowing where to look!!
In answer to an earlier post about the nature of my employment, I am employed by the local Council tat has responsibility for the postcode.....PO16 in south east Hampshire.
Best wishes
AO
