Happy Independence Day

Happy Independence Day to Americans and non-Americans everywhere. I am celebrating today because the maternity leave that I have been covering finishes tomorrow. I had expected that I would now stop practising, but I have been asked to work one day a week for the next nine weeks. That bridges the gap between working two days a week and working no days a week. It seemed like a good idea to break myself in gently to the world of being a lady of leisure. Yes, I intend to be a housewife, just like Kate.



This evening, husband and I are going to Manchester to a Neil Diamond concert. What better way could we celebrate July 4 than in the company of one of America's most successful and charismatic singer-songwriters. I am sure that we shall have a good day and hope that you do too.

Well, lots of changes. From working woman to unemployed, in nine weeks.
But great you could get to see Neil Diamond. Very talented musician.

Working one day a week isn't too bad is it?

Can't wait to hear all about the Neil Diamond gig!

One day a week sounds the perfect seque and prepare you for no days eventually. Have a great time with Neil, his genius songs are now playing in my head.

You never stop working when you retire, children and grandchildren see to that!
