AbstractHistoryArchive Description

When a husband and wife take early retirement, they plan to travel and cook and do all the fun things they never had time to do. They certainly don't count on the difficulties retirement brings. But, with time hanging heavy on his hands, the husband now spends his day cataloguing the junk mail, alphabetising the recycling bins, warding off his own ageing parents' helpful suggestions about how he can occupy himself and driving his wife absolutely batty. A truly delightful and insightful read that captures the plight of a generation! (Publisher blurb)
