Profile Information

Tell us about yourself, including hobbies and interests
I still do a bit of advisory work with my old company mainly on the sales and product development front, a day or so a week. I play golf a couple of times a week and am the father of 2 teenage girls. My eldest has just got into Durham uni, so hopefully things will be less stressful now.

My wife is younger than me and works a couple of days a week, I must admit I am still finding the retirement thing hard to deal with as I only finished full time working back end of last year. I had a busy job heading up a small sales team so was on the road a lot and interacting with customers etc.

Would love to find a non exec position somewhere as I have a lot of experience i could pass on from running companies, covering sales, product development etc.

Anyway it would be nice to meet some like minded souls if possible.

Hi Duckhook.    I am quite a bit older than you having been retired over 20 yeas now but I can appreciate your feelings about retirement and the loss of the cut and thrust of work. I felt the same 20 years ago as my work ( which I enjoyed) filled my working life. I've also played golf for many years, so when I retired I played often with my friends, three, sometimes four times a week to help fill some of the time. My game did not improve either as a result so I gave up playing competitively and joined a small group of 18 likeminded chaps and we played for fun. We became good friends and met up socially with our wives.   We occasionally travelled to other courses for three golf  day trips. My life picked up again. All gone now of course as we all got too old for it but I still play the odd game with my son. We spend more time looking for my bad tee shots these days.   Jeffers
