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!

Arsenal Football Club began with a group of friends, some of whom worked at the Woolwich Arsenal Munitions factory, forming a football team. They all contributed a small amount of money (sixpence each) and bought a football club in October 1886. After trying out a couple of names they settled on the name Woolwich Arsenal in 1891. In 1931 the club moved North of the River Thames to Highbury. The year after they moved they dropped the name Woolwich and became known as Arsenal.
In 2006 Arsenal moved from Highbury to Holloway to their new stadium sponsored by Emirates Airline.
