It rained today for the most part, with an outbreak of sunshine late on.
We opened the champagne this evening though, despite everything going on in the world. At 5.31pm today, I logged off from the office computer. After 36 years and six months lawyering, I have retired.
The cup on the right of the photograph refers to the Lord Nelson Inn, Southwold, which I have mentioned previously is our favourite pub in the British Isles. As a retirement trip, we should be in Southwold (and the Nellie) in a couple of weeks time, but that seems unlikely to say the least.
In the words of the great Yogi Berra (the baseball player, not the resident of Jellystone Park), “it ain’t over till it’s over”, so it might be more accurate to say I have almost retired. I do have some consultancy work to do for the firm still. That said, the heavy lifting is done.
