Follow the life of a recently retired teacher. The bucket lists have been written. How much can be achieved in the next 10 years - from the mundane (baking an edible cake) to the ridiculous (kayaking through the rain forest).
This is it! I've given up work -retired from the rat race and am about to start on a 10 year adventure, doing all those things I've been meaning to do but never had the time to do them. I've offloaded my responsibilities and it is now my time. So follow my adventures and see whether I actually manage anything!

Madrid Tennis Open
Am visiting Madrid for a few days and today went to the Madrid Tennis Open. Saw some amazing games on the new blue clay courts. This is court number 2 where I saw Dogopolov beat Tsonga. Del Potro defeat Ciric but the most exciting game was the one between the 2 spaniards that was so close with David Ferrer beating Nico Almagro by 8:6 in a tie break.
It was very hot today so they frequently hosed down the cour.t
Del Potro in action
This is the first time I have used my new netbook whilst abroad. Seems to take me a little while longer to write anything but hopefully I'll get the hang of it soon.
