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!

Chihuly at Kew Gardens
Kew gardens forms the backdrop to Dale Chihuly's amazing glass artwork. Although the weather wasn't perfect, the displays and artwork were well worth persevering with the changeable weather.
Known as 'Seaforms', this work was on display indoors with a film explaining how the designs were made. It was fascinating viewing.
There were a number of artworks in the Temperate House.
But the star of the show in the Temperate House is this specially created 9m pendant suspended from the ceiling.
A visit to Kew would not be complete without a walk through the Rhododendron Dell.
We finished the day here at 'The Tap on the Line' pub next to Kew Gardens railway station.
