Just 6 weeks ago, I reflected that 2016 hadn’t been as bad as some previous years.
Sadly the start to 2017 has been a nightmare. But I am trying to stay positive.
As many people know, one way to cope with stress is to breathe deeply, and count slowly.
Following this reasoning, I created the chart above which allows me to count down the months until I can claim my state pension.
In fact I could possibly retire a few months before that. The single red figure in April 2025 is the date that our mortgage will be paid off – and that is less than 100 months away!
It’s a long count but if I just keep calm and remember to breathe…. two…three…, I think I can count down from 107.
