    Post numerous threads on STW asking “what tyres for retiring?”

    Now that you don’t need to earn a living, get a job as a bike mechanic 🙂

    We have another challenge in too to allow us the same pension as fire and police. It’s extremely unlikely to go through but if it does I’m gone in 30 days. 😁

    Drac, is this just NEAS or UK ambulance service wide?

    E-bike, takeaways, slags, motorcycles, biking holidays, escort Cossie, wild camping in Alton towers. The world is your oyster!

    50 yards from Loch Voil. I can’t wait.

    Oooh, I think I know which is yours…

    Thats us just back from a nice lunch and some daytime drinks and a wee bimble around the shops. I could get used to this new life. Tomorrow will be a bike day.

    Enjoy your retirement bruneep. I got down to interview level at 19. Would only have another 6yrs or so to go. Now a paramedic, only another 24yrs to go….. Not jealous at all!

    I got made redundant nearly 2 years ago at 53 and decided to start-up my own little online business – it’s doing OK, pays its way and continues to grow but whether it pays me back the money it owes me I don’t know. Had a pension review with a financial adviser at 55 – appears we’re OK so only problem is income until I reach pension date – have a house with no mortgage. Put house on market last week, agreed sale in 72 hours so now looking at doing a self-build in Scotland. Got a better price than we expected and can probably survive will little income on the house sale proceed until pensions kick-in. No flashy cars and no fancy holidays will be the sacrifice – couldn’t be happier.
