Plus you have the resources and knowledge if you do decide to go back to work you will do fine..Your only 47 years old your still young
Alas life experience counts for very little nowadays and at 47 years old I am considered positively ancient in the employment world.
Too many naive graduates who can quote textbooks etc but know absolutely nothing about life and people, but I guess that's the way of the world - I
should know that as I was a part of it - but to be honest I did try to maintain a level of integrity.
Mind you, sometimes I feel ancient when I'm on the doors - I don't do it as often as I used to and I can't see me continuing for much longer - but
you get some great laughs!
If I ever do go back to work it will be either to run another pub, but it would have to be a Freehouse and that takes a lot of money, or in some role
that I felt that I was doing something positive and challenging and not just pulling a wage.
Obviously the OU course will help me there, I'm really looking forward to it and have more or less planned my degree out, but nothing is set in stone
and things could easily change over the length of time it takes to gain my degree.
I really enjoy my allotment, never thought I'd see the day but the peace and quiet is great, but days like yesterday can be very exhausting.
I don't get to go roaming around Europe as much as I used to or even go to as many concerts and festivals etc but all in all I can't complain - and
I do get to see lots of my grandson!
