The lazy hazy days of Winter
Today must be unique.
For the first time since I started working back in the ‘60s, I have no work as such to do.
I have a couple of projects still floating around, but they are more or less complete. I still have some business bookwork to do, but that can take its time.
I have had periods before when I had no work on hand, where I managed to grab myself a week or two [or more] of relaxation before the next project arrived, but this time I have made the ultimate decision.
I am not taking on any more.
I have had enough of web design and web development. At my stage in life, it is a hassle I can do without. I will keep up the web hosting for the time being, as it only causes occasional trouble, and anyway I need somewhere to park my sites. If an existing client wants work done, I will consider it.
So the week stretches ahead and I can relax. If I take a good mood, I might do some writing. If I take a bad mood, I’ll send out some invoices.
Life ain’t all that bad!
You’ll be bored in no time!
There are two chances of that, Robert. If I get bored I can invent work easily enough!!
Nice that you have enough to keep you occupied but not so much that all else suffers. Enjoy your relaxathon.
It would be nice to choose what I want to do rather then being told by someone else what to do. I wish you good fortune.
Of course in my case if I ever would reach such a state, my wife would have no trouble find things to keep me occupied. I’ve sometimes remarked I come back to work to get some rest.
Baino: For too long I have been nagged at by unseen forces to get some thing or the other completed. Now I am going to relax and do things at my pace. I feel like a ton has been lifted off my back.
Jim C: Welcome! Your day will come. If you are concerned about your wife, may I suggest that a basball bat is a very good method of control? One of the handier tips I picked up from Grandad.
I keep saying the very same thing to my Dad. If you keep working and working, then when do you actually get the chance to enjoy your retirement?! Well done you, take it easy for a change.
