In honour of your move to the most excellent of the shires ( except for Yorkshire of course) thought you might like this,

Just a quick update:

38: The number of days before I retire..

80: The number of days before I get on a plane to blighty.....

81: The number of days before I am sat in the snug of the Sawley Arms eating rare roast beef with yorkshire pud and washing it down with a coupla pints of real ale.....

After that, we are going to buy a car and caravan and spend a coupla years beach combing and basically driving from Manchester to Burnley via Morrocco, Crete, Bodram and St Petersburgh with a coupla thousand places in between......

And then? aaaaah whatever!!



Brilliant!! Love to hear how it all goes! Im off in two weeks but Ive only been here 7 years.... All the very best to you!!

Aaaah, upper crust we were

Flew into Essendon airport the year before they opened Tullamarine..

My first thoughts as a twelve year old...

Where's Skippy?, I expected to see kangaroos hopping alongside the plane.

Yellow blocks in the bottom of the mens urinal. Never seen em' before and thought the bloke who had been in there before me needed ta see a doctor...

Getting on a tram, buying a ticket and telling the conductor to (seriously) "keep the change"

Thinking Australians had a speech impediment because everytime they said my name (John) it came out as Pom.

Lol! When I worked in the outback the local fireman/garage owner/mechanic used to have to go out and clear the runway of roos before the Royal Flying Doctors Service plane landed!

Hope you have an amazing time both back in Blighty and in Europe, keep counting down! Me? After today 42 shifts to go - woo hoo!

Wishing you safe and happy travels!

Thank you one and all for your good wishes...

Course you realise that the other side of the coin is that I am driving the missus nut's by talking like a reject from a 1950' "Carry On" film saying things like...

"ere luv, am joost poppin' up t'pub fer a quick un, it'd be reet grand if'n yer'd loike ter cum along n' aaaaarl buy yer a half"

I'm thinking of buying myself a cloth cap and makin a right berk o' meself..

Lol! That was fab. I must confess I have a bit of a soft spot for Wigan, such a friendly place and I love that big fancy dress party they have on Boxing Day every year - wonder if they still do it?

As far as I know they still do I know everyone was still having a ball dressing up on Boxing Day 2011, so I would presume it was still going on this past year too. It's such a fun thing and been going on for too long now to suddenly stop.
