“Unfortunately, the clock is ticking, the hours are going by. The past increases, the future recedes. Possibilities decreasing, regrets mounting.” ―
Retirement – it was nearly time, but oh, how I disliked that word. My time was nearly up, but as the quote implied, would there be anything out there for me?
In the end, no one said it’s time to leave, instead, they said please stay, but I’d lost interest, I was tired, and now it was time to go.
In school, clock watching, keeping an eye on the time was my habit – Assembly-time, playtime, lunchtime, home-time.
Now, even in retirement, I clock watch all the time.
Oven clocks – I watch a lot and frequently use the timers.
Upstairs – I look at the clock, is it time to watch TV?
At the computer, I watch the tiny clock in the corner of the screen; I need to keep a track of time. I’m thirsty – when was the last time I had a drink? It’s raining, soon I’ll pop out and meet the kids from the bus.
Out and about in my car I watch the clock, I have to be home by half-past three just in case a teenaged grandchild forgets a key.
2nd Taxi driver, that’s me, bringing home from – netball, rugby, piano, dancing, visiting friends and parties! Once again I watch the time.
Time – I’ve got plenty to share and ostill have time for me and I wouldn’t have it any other way!
