    Another Best Wishes of the Season thread, to my virtual friends here

    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.

    Love, Y'all

    So sense has come to you at last and you are retiring. My advice is Don't. I have so many interests that I am now able to do that I do not know how I ever found time to work. Lots of the house maintenance has been done but just been down the bike shed to find that one job I had planned but did not do- should have been done. Bike shed leaks and it was planned to refelt it but other things took over.

    Whatever you do--Do not come back to the UK at present. Unless you have your waterwings available as the whole country is sinking. Floods everywhere and Travel round the country is getting difficult unless you have a helicopter. Then you may have trouble finding terra firma to land it on.

    Like the idea of travel but think Nissan instead of Landrover. Better spares availability throughout the world. Either that or find a 40 year old VW splittie campavan in Australia and bring it back to the UK. They are going for 30,000 upwards now as every one wants them.

    Good luck for your new vocation and we will meet up if you ever get time to visit Sussex in the future.
