I have made a 'retirement' card for my mum this weekend. She is not due to retire until next Spring, but the branch where she works is being closed on Wednesday so she is getting redundancy and retiring with it now. At least, that is the idea, but the list of things she would like to buy with the redundancy money is growing every day! I think she will like it! My sister, dad and me have together bought her a lovely cast iron chiminea and a set of garden lanterns as she really enjoys her garden and we wanted to mark the start of her days of leisure.
