Retirement When I left my full-time job at the end of July, I looked forward to having more time and focus to devote to blogging. I decided to give myself a few months at the start to enjoy some ‘away from the clock’ time, not only to recover from cardiac ablation number 3, but to adjust to a freer schedule and figure out my own rhythms. There are times of the day I’m better at writing and creating, and others when I’m better able to knuckle down for more routine or repetitive tasks. Can I just say I’m LOVING not having to go to my office along the landing every day at a certain time. I’ve kept myself quite busy without even really trying and now am ready to get a bit more of a handle on my schedule and where I’m going. Time to make a plan!! But first a belated retirement BBQ was such fun Guests wrote up some retirement bucket list suggestions for me. Here are a few, what would you suggest? Be a super Grandma Travel …
Sometimes we bumble along, feeling life is good, all is normal, confidence at a high, and then wham…… Been a disappointing week or so for me, but that is absolutely nothing compared to the sadness of the family of Jo Cox. Here are a few Friday photos, snippets of my soul, which make me happy and smile….and look forward! Loving my garden in June, and Grey Goose needs a coat of paint! G ∼♥∼ G
My ‘Friday Photo’ is Runswick Bay. This is my best kept secret – I only discovered this gem on the North Yorkshire coast this year, and looking forward to going back soon. With its sweeping, sheltered bay and charming red roofed cottages, Runswick Bay is one of the Yorkshire coast’s prettiest destinations. The sandy beach, which once provided anchorage for brightly coloured fishing boats, is now a family favourite for rock pooling, fossil hunting and coastal walks, where you can admire the breathtaking sea views.
