It's 'That' Day Again

It's that day again, and something has gone very wrong as I'm stuck in an office and typing with two fingers.

Now, according to Plan A, I was supposed to celebrating my first year of retirement in a converted Greek farmhouse, and writing the Greek version of A Year in Province, only my version would have insights into local culture and be funny.

Plan B is to keep working for while longer. It might be quite a long while actually...

No worries, in another 48 hours I'm off for some well deserved leave and hopefully no fewer than six manuals and some other assorted crap will be complete.

Unless I crash the car or find the flat has burnt down, today won't be very memorable, but there have been a few in the past. For instance:

  • 25 years ago celebrating in the back of a bus in Northern Italy, somewhere between Sienna and Florence.
  • 20 years ago celebrating with a load of friends at Guy's Court, a few miles from Preston.
  • 11 years ago celebrating with a load of friends in La Coupole, next door to La Rotonde, in Paris.
And so it goes...

May all your Plan As be triumphant.

A year in Province, quaint tales of rustic folk, separated by barbed wire and paramilitary murals.

A nice place for you to whine and dine.

Gosh Fred, your Province experience was somewhat different from mine!

Perhaps you should try Brighton this year?
