Week 6 – exam time

Week 6 – exam time

It was my Anatomy and Physiology exam on Friday. After neglecting revision all last week I went into overdrive this week and revised for a long time each day up to the exam. It is actually a really interesting subject. In the end the exam was not too bad – though doing a hand written test after years of computer use was challenging and I do wonder if the examiner will be able to read my answers. But relieved to have no more revision hanging over me.

For about half of a day when revising at home on my own I had my first feelings of doubt about whether I had made the right decision to retire from Acas. After the excitement of the last week the ¬†lack of contact with other people made me feel a bit stressed and down for a short time. This did not last ¬†– helpfully I headed off to a wedding and on a family holiday at the end of the week. Having more time an energy for my family has been one of the many benefits of my new life style. Generally I’ve been disgustingly cheerful ever since I retired. But this short dark mood, felt like a bit of a warning.
