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!

HAPPY NEW YEAR
Before welcoming the New Year I like to reflect on the past 12 months and think about where I have been and what I have done. Visiting new countries as I did with Mexico, Canada and Poland continues to quench my thirst for new adventures. My travels didn't just take me to other countries but also around the UK. In April I completed my walk across England which was quite a physical challenge. I also visited Liverpool and the Jurassic coast in Dorset/Devon.
One of the biggest challenges that I am undertaking is to visit every one of the 269 Underground stations to research above the station and its surroundings. So far I have been to 38 stations so I have some way to go.
Spending time in Manchester with Mum and also with my granddaughter here in London has meant I have less time for voluntary work but I still help out as a sighted guide as often as I can.
Blogging gives me a great deal of pleasure as I read about new places around the world and view some incredible photos. Your continued support of my blogs and the numerous comments you write give me such a thrill.
So thank you, each and everyone of my readers and followers.
None of us know what the future holds but I wish you all a healthy, happy and blogging good year.
