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!

Fortnum and Mason
These are the windows of Fortnum and Mason's store in Piccadilly, London. This is the way to advertise your goods for Christmas. They sell handmade chocolates, biscuits, Christmas puddings and many other top of the range food stuffs. Their hampers must rate as one of the best on the market. The tiniest of them starts at £50 for just a couple of items and I don't think there is an upper limit.
But whoever designed these windows certainly knows how to entice people into the shop. I love looking around this store but looking is all that I do as most things are out of my price range.
