Welcome to Friday!I'm keeping it short and sweet this week. I'm dedicating my FTF this week to one of the hardest working people I know. My mother in law, Shirley, who will probably kill me if she ever finds out I've posted her picture and her name on the internet.
On Wednesday this week , my mother in law retired after over half a century of working. At one point when my MIL was in her 20's she held down multiple jobs simultaneously while bringing up a toddler to make ends meet. Her energy still amazes me. And until this week she still worked 5 days a week starting at the very rude time of 7 am every day. And somehow still always managed to have a pristine house and throw together impromptu family dinners for the clan. When I get home from work all I want to do is collapse...
My favourite thing this week is the idea that after years of working so hard she is finally going to get to do some of the things that she wants to do for herself. She told me her first job was going to be cleaning her house from top to bottom. Crazy. My first thing would be to sit on my arse and do nothing for a month.
Happy Retirement Shirley. You deserve it.
If you'd like to share one of your favourites this Friday, whack up a post and link to this one so we can come and share something you're loving this week.
P.S. My father in law will be joining her in sleeping in and bumming round doing exactly what he wants when he retires next week.
