I was born on the Isle of Wight and spent many long, very happy summer holidays with my grandparents there when I was a child. I still holiday there with my children and grandchildren. I retired in 2016 and it took me 3 years to completely settle into retirement. I’m an active member of our U3A joining various groups. My hobbies are reading, audio books, cinema, theatre, gardening, Tai Chi and playing Mah Jong at our local group. I also love travelling and go on holidays with single traveller holiday companies.
