Hubby's friend is receiving a large pay out from his wife's job, as she died so young her 'death in service' payment is huge.
It is a very sad way to receive money but he will have enough to put a roof over his head for the foreseeable future.
I did all the calculations, I worked out the finances and made the decision that I would retire by Christmas 2017, woohoo, I was on a count down.
Over the weekend I checked out the figures my L&M had given me for his side of the plans.
I have no idea what he was thinking of but he made a huge miscalculation.
I will now be working for another 3 to 5 years, to say I'm devastated would be putting it mildly, I shall be trundling round at work with a Zimmer frame!
