My philosophy is anything that doesn't get done in the morning doesn't get done. After 1 pm is my time, apart from summer evenings pottering in the garden. Do all retirees think along these lines?

Posted by: jathbee (9402) Report abuse
No. Usually after tea.

Just the opposite, Anne. The mornings are my time...cup of coffee and my pipe...watch tv or read or work on computer. Afternoons are where I get my jobs done. Very interesting thread though. Just shows the differences between us.

Good one, lass.

I agree Anne,but I come alive again as the evening comes along.

Nice to see you back again jathbee.
Fred, I like pipe smokers, reminds me of my dad.
Momac, When do you paint?

Posted by: jathbee (9402) Report abuse
Thanks Anne,nice of you to say so.

Posted by: momac (9755)  Report abuse
Anne,it's usually after tea,because I know I probably won't be disturbed then.
Fred,like Anne I always think men that smoke a pipe are so laid back.I love
the smell,remember going for my Grandads when I was a youngster.

I'm retired. I regard all day as my time. Jobs have to be done but if on any given day I don't fancy doing it then I don't [apart from doing dishes which I don't like leaving.]

Only job that must be done is to tidy the garden and get stuff into the Green bin before that bin day every thing else gets done some time or other.

Mornings are for 'domestics', cleaning, gardening and the like.
The afternoon is for walks, either local or around Rivington.
The evening is for sitting with my laptop literally on my lap.
I have just upgraded my laptop with new Dell machine, a Dell 17 5770 Inspiron.
17.3" screen size, Intel i5 processor, 8 gig RAM. one terrabyte hard drive, a cracking bit of kit.

I have to get stuck into physical jobs in the morning. As a rule before I even eat. Can't shop etc. and then start serious gardening.
