you're retiring and you're going to die
on 16 December 2013
Right, so, bought this for my mum who is retiring in February when she reaches 60. she is still very active and I had planned on this being a bit of a bucket list type guide to fun things she could be doing.
which, for the most part, it is.
However, there's whole section on preparing yourself for the fact that you are going to die. and soon.
Sunny tips such as 'why not pick which hymns you want to be played at your funeral', and 'make sure you leave your will somewhere easy to find'. Not to mention the wonderfully cheery 'have a think whether you want something funny or serious on your tombstone'.
honestly, those tips are all in there.
I had intended this to a be a cheery book about new beginnings. I was wrapping xmas presents the other day and just chanced upon this section, and I am so glad I did. it would have really upset my mum and I am so glad I spotted it.
