Unexpected Wealth!

I’m rich.
In fact, I’m gonna be so much richer, I have no idea what I’m going to do with this extra money.
I had notification today that my Banking Pension is going up by £5.35.
Now what can I buy with this sudden influx of good fortune?

Sadly none of the above.
Oh, I forgot to say, that’s £5.35 a year.

I’m pleased with any increase as I didn’t have to pay anything into this pension plan as it was one of the Company perks. Even though I’d been made redundant in 2001, I was still entitled to take the retirement package when I was 50.  As it happened, if I hadn’t taken it then, I may have lost the right to it all together as the Banking side of the business was sold to another entity, and I’m actually being paid by the Head Company.
The good news is that Mr Taxman won’t get a penny as I’m still many thousands short of his (generous) tax threshold 🙂
The bad news is that I still have to wait at least another six years before I’m entitled to a state pension 😦


About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.
