Thank you for your support

Just wanted to say thank you to all my friends and colleagues for your support and encouragement – it means so much to me.

I’ve gained new perspectives about my life/career and learned something new from every single one of you.  I’m looking forward to building stronger bonds in the future.


Updating my blog…stay tuned

Good morning!

I do believe in the saying “the early bird gets the worm” because I’m an early riser. Is it because I love the mornings? Must be because I think I’m still 3 hours behind.

Thank you Lorna Paris!

Retirement? What’s that?

Today started off with gazing into my loving husband’s eyes and telling him I love him (as I try to do every morning) and reassuring him that I will replace my income as soon as humanly possible :-).  This, of course, will be challenging, we know from first hand experience.

When my hubby (Dom) and I first met at the turn of the century, we lost our jobs within 2 weeks of one another.  It was extremely challenging, just starting a new relationship with no income and all.  Early on in our relationship, however, we knew that regardless of what the circumstances would arise, we would support one another, come hook or crook, because we were each other’s friend, lover and travel mate (AKA – soul mates).  And we did, and have to this day.

Fast forward 11 years later and here we go again.  Things to do today:
