    I am so with you on the internet, you get used to a fast connection. Where I am now in the UK the wind blows and literally the connection goes on my 3G! So frustrating

    This is my year to begin my period of refocusing. I don’t like the idea of retirement, it conjures up thoughts of being so old you can’t do much, or sitting around waiting for the Grim Reaper. So, this year I am “refocusing”. What does that mean? Well, I’ve got to that happy stage where I don’t need a six figure income and I’ve had enough of working five days per week. I’m going to drop my workload to a quiet trickle so that I can include a couple of golf mornings, some daily exercise, which has been badly missing, and do some gardening or anything else I feel like. This will go on hopefully, for another decade at which time I will be really old and perhaps ready to return to the earth.

    Unlike Valerie who will work from the Yarra, I’m getting a caravan so I can cruise about Australia and work from wherever I am at the time. The concept is similar, just a different expression of it.

      I love the idea of “refocusing”. I’ll admit, I also have secret dreams of a fancy Winnebago of sorts so I can literally take off with all my pets whenever I want!
