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!

The snow arrives
The snow has arrived. I woke up on Wednesday to these views from the bedroom window. I decided to put on the walking boots and enjoy the pristine snow.
I walked to Blackheath and then on to Greenwich Park.
The scenery was magical and surprisingly quiet.
This is where everyone was hanging out. Many children were off school and taking advantage of the snow to try out those sledges they had found at the back of the garage.
Since then we have had some of the lowest temperatures I can remember. We have also had a storm with its high winds. At home pipes have frozen and as a consequence the heating stopped (hair dryer to the rescue!). As I write this, the snow is falling heavily so I think I will make myself a cup of tea and stay home.
