Is retirement busier than working?

This year seems to have gone by so fast that I am wondering if retirement is busier than working.  Perhaps it is that retirement is so much more enjoyable that the time just passes more quickly!  I certainly don't recall the time flying by so quickly.


However, looking back on the year, I guess that we have done quite a lot.  It may just be an exceptional year but I don't recall last year being any less busy.  Do you fellow retirees find that life in retirement seems busier than working?


Just looking through our calendar … we seem to rarely have a month that is quiet … looks like June was the only one!  I know that we did our 'world trip' earlier this year but I am not including that in my thinking.  We seem to have at least 3 major celebrations each year … e.g. this year - our 40th wedding anniversary, our eldest son's wedding, brother-in-law's 50th birthday.  Looking at the number of times that we have been to London or other major cities for shows or dinner etc., I wonder if it is just us filling in the time that makes life seem so busy?
