TODAY IS MY MUMS LAST DAY AT WORK…

My Mum is getting early retirement as she turned 60 this month.
She have been talking about it for years and the urge have been getting stronger after I and my Dad got sick.
- one of her reasons is that if my cancer comes back, she can take care of me without having to ask for time of.

Friday she had a retirement party at her work. My Dad and I was invited, having gotten an official invitation from the boss.
A few of Mums colleagues that have stopped was invited to.
It was a nice party.
There was a small buffet for the residents at the home and us guests. The boss held a speech and she got presents from her colleagues and some of the patients.
My Dad and I had gotten her presents too.

She had a nice party, and have been using this working weekend to say goodbye to the residents at the home.
Some of them don’t understand why she is stopping, and some of them are afraid that they will never eat again, as my Mum used to cook the days they didn’t get the dinner delivered;)
This weekend I´ve been cooking and baking for her so she had something t bring to work and share with her colleagues.

But all in all she really looks forward to stop working, as the last years have been draining for her and she needs to relax and look after herself and not just work and look after my Dad and me.

Early retirement at 60? We, in Indonesia, retire at the age of 56. I guess it's about time for your Mom to stay home. I hope she'll enjoy the retirement days.
Regards for her. ♥

If the Goverment had their way we would all work until age 72..
She needs it now, with everything that have been going on with me and my dad being sick the past years, she need to relax and don´t work.
