Last August Update As I wait yet again to go for my commute to work.
Today the Roofers have completed their work and we are now watertight and I'm £2040 lighter! They seem to have done a good job on time and budget, feedback left on Checkatrader and FB sites.
Had a good night last night, met up with some old colleagues- all retired in their 50s (still) and encouraged to try to retire sooner than later! All have so much to fill their days they don't know how they managed to work.
Edit- my DB forecast ordered and it should be with me by 4 October, I was told by the pension agency and my former colleagues that it will be an under forecast as it is based on payment information given by my employer in May this year and of course does not take either our payrise in July or shift enhancements paid from June into account.
Have just topped up Mrs CRV SIPP with the rest of this months money I'd put aside for fuel but not spent, so feeling I'm achieving making our plans work.
Have a great weekend everyone.

I have put in a quote for my deferred civil service pension in anticipation of a Voluntary Severance scheme from my current employer due to a reorganisation.
Now that I have got it into my head cannot wait to retire. Though have a feeling I could still be waiting and saying this 6 months from now. Hoping to be retired by 54 at latest, hopefully 53.5.
