Why I retired early


I retired 9 months ago and it was a difficult decision. I was still enjoying parts of the job but felt it was the right time for my family since my husband had retired the year before. I have not regretted it at all. Having spent a career like Dr Sally Whale above I felt that the nhs has had its pound of flesh. I spend time walking up hills. Learning French (again) running, birdwatching, photography, yoga reading and travelling as much and as far as I can. I am much fitter and see my family much more.
