For which I'm starting a new thread rather than intruding with my/our circumstances on the previous threads.
Anyhow, I'll add my very best wishes for the festivities and the coming year to you all.
Personally - daughter is here, retrieving her stuff from the chaos awaiting the movers after we pack up after 8 interesting years. Doing a 'deep clean', and selling almost everything we brought here. Even sold all (200+) vinyl music ! (20 dollars for the lot, including a turntable). Books from Literature and Anthropology degrees - gifts to schools. Leaving clean of all, pretty much. Leaving with a holdall and a laptop.
Next - on a ship from Miami to Lima, and thereafter -- who knows.
(Cycling relevant - a few bikes are going into storage in UK until we decide what's next)
On the advice of wise people here, I declined a well paid further assignment in Saudi. Didn't feel like more restriction!
It's as refreshing as adolescence to have not the faintest plan of what's next. A slight notion of equipping a Landrover, taking a couple of years from UK to travel and stay with son in Perth WA.
I've never felt quite so free and frisky! I feel like current options are what I've been working for.
