I am going to look at Devon, Somerset and Wales. My family originates from all three places and I have been watching quite a bit of all three on BBC's Escape to the Country. That show not only shows you the homes but the beautiful countryside and villages. It's wonderful.
I really must get the BBC Iplayer. How did you do that?

Well my Dad goes back after 28 and a half years tomorrow, don't know the flight number but 8.30 pm from Bangkok on Etihad Airways to somewhere in the Gulf then Heathrow - I'll be going for a visit later in the year and in the meantime I keep hoping for a redundancy from the Government

Beedubya - so glad you made it back and am enjoying hearing your updates

I came on Etihad too, so your dad will be stopping in Abu Dhabi.

Thanks Moonsurfer, just slowly getting back into it and am now seriously job hunting as I kept changing my mind about where I was going to live/work.

Sounds like the process is beginning! Give him chance at least to find somewhere so you can doss down with him for a little while.

Let us hope that the VR packages are on offer soon. I am thinking of packing it all in too today - might feel different tomorrow but retirement is sounding really good right now!

Yes, boredom It's why I work having retired once already but I am getting too old for it now, I just want to curl up under the doona and hope that it all goes away!

Curly tops, I missed tracking you (that's the problem with being on the other side of the world) so welcome home! You should be there by now!!!
