Grand works retirement send off, with friends retirement do, posh night out retirement celebration with Mr Nell, forum retirement party bash, ladies who lunch retirement celebration, surprise neighbours retirement BBQ, maybe have a day off?
The same thing happened to me when retirement was fast approaching, Nellie. This kind of 'behaviour' is quite normal.
And once you have more time on your hands you can do what I often do. I regularly 'cull' my cupboards etc and get rid of stuff that I thought I'd like but which I've not used. The local charities do well out of this activity as I often donate brand new things with the labels still attached.
And, of course, getting rid of things makes more room for other items. 😜
