Follow the life of a retired teacher working her way through the bucket list. 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!

I first saw these legs a couple of weeks ago and assumed they were part of London Lumiere. How wrong could I be! They are the legs of a high jumper (Mohamed Younes Idriss from Sudan) as photographed by a French street artist known as JR. The image has been displayed on laser cut cardboard outside a new gallery space on Sackville Street Mayfair.
The gallery, Lazinc, is displaying 'studio plans, drawings and prototypes used to realise JR's Giant series displayed during the 2016 Rio de Janeiro Olympics.' taken from the Gallery's press release.
This is how it looked displayed over a building in Rio.
The other design on display was of the French swimmer Leonie Periault.
I would love to have seen these 'Giants' in situ but at least I am grateful that I saw this exhibition and will look out for JR's work in the future.
