Yes, not having to go to work anymore is DEFINITELY something I'm looking forward to! My career has been the cause for my 3 nervous breakdowns. I'll be 56 in a month, and still enjoy excellent health. Enjoying old age takes PLANNING!

So sorry to hear of the loss of your husband, followed by the stock market crash! It affected me too; fortunately, I was able to recover. It's great that you have grandchildren to keep you going. I'll have to get to know other people's; I have none.
In the US, a person is considered a "senior citizen" at age 65. Insulting birthday cards start much younger. When I turned 40, I discovered on my own it has many benefits. I have since been told there are benefits at ALL ages - including old / SAGE.

If I lived in a big beautiful palace, I'd enjoy staying home a lot and entertaining. It might be fun for my house to be the place to go for parties. That's another thing to look forward to when I retire and have more time.
