    After boating for many years took to the tarmac with a MH. Now on our second one after 4 or 5 years. Just returned from a really random (and fantastic) 5 week tour of Brittany and Normandy as our first European trip.
    Hi to all you other footloose fools.:)

    Whereabouts near Glossop? I grew up in Hadfield and (though I left in 1968) my Mum still lives there. There are a couple of other Glossopians/ex-Glossopians on the forum as well.

    I've been watching with envy at your countdown timer has clicked ever closer to your Temporary Retirement and now it seems to be ticking upward again :)

    Are you now Temp Retired and what's that feel like :)

    Hi Gandhi - We're from Padfield! Lived there for 20 years before we retired in 2006. Now up at Windy Harbour for a few weeks visiting family and friends. :D

    Hollingworth? That's Mottram not Glossop :D Mind you, I hear it's improved since Tootles moved :D

    Bu**er, that's a waste. Tootles is on holiday so probably won't see this :D

    No Momo, Hollingworth Lake is near Rochdale. Hollingworth village is just inside Cheshire by the Derbyshire border - Here.

    It feels great not to be clock watching, although I am still getting used to it, feels like I am just having a few days off work at the mo. Mind you I am still working hard as we have just started doing up a house we are going to let out.

    I must start a new countdown for when we are starting travelling.

    Oh dear. Oh dear, oh dear.

    We've been concentrating so hard on Islamic extremists we've overlooked Glossop. There is a Glossop take-over in progress and even He Who Must Be Obeyed had not spotted it.

    We're doomed I tell yea, doomed.
