About me

Newly retired after a 27 year career in Social Services and now with free time to explore my passions: birds, photography, travel, the lakes, the rivers, the beach, sheep and power pylons plus a new passion, genealogy – evolved from days of idleness post accident

Life got in the way of “Being Mobile”, my former blog. 

An accident, while “Being Mobile” in Australia, curtailed my travels for nearly two years, along with an unexpected change in employment status.

The accident was unwelcome but oddly resigning my employment, after 27 years, was not. I had never intended to be entirely unemployed (aka retired). It was planned to be a gradual process; slowly reducing hours , days but not abandoning my passion. I loved my job. But things change, it was no longer as it used to be and sanity reigned.

So now at 70, I have all the time I wish to follow my passions; birds, photography and travel, the lakes, the rivers, the beach, sheep and power pylons. Plus a new passion evolved from days of idleness post accident – genealogy.

NOTE: Unless stated otherwise, I have taken the blog photographs.
