    Here in the Staffordshire moorlands it is a beautiful sunny day, I have a few choices to make.
    1. Go for a walk in the hills
    2. Go for a motorcycle ride
    3. Sit in the sun lounge, drink coffee and read the paper (not the Mail BTW)
    4. Go to my local for a coffee and a chat with a other retirees
    5. Drive over to Islam and walk the valley
    It is hard being retired with so many choices:D

    5 looks favourite, see you later.

    How many of you are similar and what are your choices?

    Lovely here but freezing. Any outdoor activity will have to be followed up with a hot drink and some cake.
    I'd go for the walk in the hills.
