Welcome to my blog

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!

  2. Wow, that's an impressive selection. I wear a full-brimmed hat when I'm outside because of the bright, high-altitude sunshine here, but it's not as fashionable as any of these.

  3. Slightly different positioning could have had you in a selfie appearing to be wearing a hat.
