Life after "retirement"

Someone said to me before I left the Army that I would be lost in civvy street and I would find it hard to adjust with the different lifestyle and find having to fend for myself for the first time in 26 years difficult.
Well, I've taken to it like a duck to water, for the first time in years there is no stress, no one to justify my decisions to, (except my wife), I now have stability, my family is a lot happier, and I'm content with life, though I do need to get a job as the DIY is coming to an end and the garden will soon be finished. I'm even getting out and about with my camera again.
So, if anyone reading this is leaving the Forces soon, there is life after retirement.
Incidentally, the same person asked me if I would do it all again, I replied "absolutely"
