CHAPTER 3


So what have I been doing? Serving on the Greater Life Advisory Board (GLAB) for McCarthy & Stone is very stimulating and challenging, as we try to think in new ways about issues that affect us all in later life. I’m also heavily involved with ‘It’s in the Bag’, a fund for supporting men who have been diagnosed with Testicular Cancer in the South West of England. I’m involved with the Patient Participation Group of our local surgery too, I’m chairman elect for our village monthly magazine, and I take an active part in other clubs and societies in our very lively community. On a personal level, we also have four grandchildren under three -- and two horses, which take up a considerable amount of time!


Let’s make the word ‘retirement’ redundant -- what do you think?


The key is a positive attitude and then you start to see opportunities as opposed to problems. As Mark Twain wrote, ‘Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbour. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.’
