    Have already told my sisters that I want this at my funeral!!!
  10. Now that I have officially retired as a permanent classroom teacher the last line from a song for me has to be "I did it my way".

  11. In the words of Roy Orbison. It's Over. And it was for me at 3.25 yesterday.

    Congratulations and good luck Peter99.
  13. Pedant alert!
    Wasn't it the Three Degrees. Ah, the summer of '74. My team, Leeds United had just won the title and to cap it all Manchester United got relegated.
  14. Many thanks.

    "School's out for summer!
    School's out for ever!"
    I'd feel like one of those manic "teachers" leaping into the pool with specs swinging, and briefcase in hand, in the t.v. ad

    I always loved that ad until this year when it was a bit more poignant as I took early retirement. (Did she fall or was she pushed?) 'I did it my way' probably lead to my present situation!! [​IMG]
    No problems though. I'm beginning to feel like a human being again. [​IMG]

  17. After, 'School's out for summer' and they all return, I'll be 'sitting on the dock of the bay', waiting for a ferry to 'Amsterdam'.

  18. And I''ll be gettting 'Ferry cross the Mersey' going with OH on business trip
