Work In Progress
It's been a couple of rather noisy days here to start the week. It wasn't too hard to guess at the source, though, as we had been forewarned earlier in the summer that there would be some work done on the railway nearby. Yesterday I did not bother about going out to check; but today when going out for a walk, I brought my camera and snapped a few photos. Whatever they were doing, it looked rather impressive. (I think they're exchanging the tracks.)
Meanwhile (and totally off track from the railway) I'm currently trying to get my head round the fact that from next month, I'll be an Old Age pensioner. Various letters from Authorities reminding me of it have kept dropping in all summer. As I've already been in work-injury-related retirement for several years, how I actually spend my time probably won't suddenly change very drastically. However, one thing that will change is my pension. (A fact that does not come as a total surprise, but will probably still call for recalculations every now and then along the way.) At the moment, I have to confess I'm struggling a bit to find more positive aspects of becoming an OAP. ... I'll work on it ...
