I have been retired for six years and seem to be so busy I don't know how I found the time to work! I love spending time with my wonderful family, I have a son and a daughter and three beautiful grandchildren. I emigrated to Australia from UK in 1970 and absolutely love it here.
Tenpin Bowling, walking and swimming (summer only!!!)
Internet, movies/tv, music and reading
Favorite TV Shows:
There are many but to list some.....Rome and Moonlight (both no longer aired) The Tudors, Dexter, All Saints (Australian but no longer showing...thank goodness for DVD's) True Blood, Sea Patrol and any period drama's with one of my favourites being The Mayor of Casterbridge.
Phantom of the Opera, Gladiator, Braveheart, Dances With Wolves, Avatar, Vanity Fair, The Notebook, Australia, Amazing Grace, The Dark Knight, 300, epic and swashbuckling adventures, period drama's (just too many to mention) also love some romcoms like The Lakehouse, The Wedding Planner, A Good Year and more recently The Back Up Plan and The Ugly Truth. Of course a sentimental favourite of mine is The Oyster Farmer...wonder why!!!!
Books by John Grisham, Mary Higgins Clark, James Patterson, Jeffrey Archer, Michael Connelly, Lynda La Plante, autobiographies.... really too many to mention.
Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body but rather to skid in sideways, wine in one hand, chocolate in the other, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming “WOO HOO WHAT A RIDE”
Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take but what takes our breath away.
Do not squander time, that is the stuff life is made of.
