With retirement - I've been retired nearly 5 years (took early retirement due to ill health) - I don't know how I ever had time to go to work. I seem to be always busy - but that things take so much longer than they used to.

Enjoy - and plenty of playing when you're comfortable to do so.

I retired 3 years ago. Then came back to work for a final year and am due to retire again 13 days from now. I hope retirement suits you.

So shall I pencil you in for the 2020 piano party in Bulgaria?

Not a chance -- It's so much easier and more fun to pontificate than to practice.... ;-)

Ah, retirement. I still have 3-5 more years in the saddle.
