Mother has been looking back at my first ever post on this blog, on the 18th April 2011. She had over 5 years to go to retirement – now she has 827 days at the most. She is trying to get a prediction of how much she would earn if she retired this October but the Pension website thing is permanently ‘down’.
It’s a ploy to get people to give up trying and stay at work until they die…….
October is the magic month when the mortgage gets paid off and the new gob arrangement is finally paid for. And when I go back to eating Aldi’s finest because she won’t be able to afford the expensive stuff if she goes ahead with the plan.
Is Mother’s sanity worth my sacrifice?????
