Coinciding with the anniversary of the great David Bowie's death, "Ch... Ch... Ch... Changes" are unfolding in Planet Ratcliffe.
First up, Jenny and I have set a date for our wedding. We have been engaged for over a year and been together for over 3 years. Save The Date - 1st August 2020.
#WatchThisSpace1 - Ratters Towers in Merstham is on the market with a view to our setting up a new home together with Layla. Currently there is some interest in the house, and we are waiting for things to firm up before proceeding in earnest.
#WatchThisSpace2 - Dates are now finalising for the full closure of the Canon HQ at Woodhatch and the move of staff to the Stockley Park site in Uxbridge. <Blog June 2019>.The Postroom will be gone on 31 May 2020.
The commute to Stockley Park on the M25 has no place in the plans for our future, so fresh employment opportunities will need to be sought.
... and in other news ...
On January 1, Jenny and I spent a leisurely day and paid another visit to Wisley to see the Glow. Lovely as always. <more here>
For the weekend of 11 - 12 January, we popped down to Eastbourne for a post-Christmas madness break. It was a very cold one, but we managed to walk by Beachy Head, potter around Alfriston and have a beach stroll in Eastbourne itself. <more here>
On Sunday 19 January, we had a nice stroll around Wisley. <more here>
More mother care visits to check on the Duchess took place through January.
My Dad, Len's (would have been 91st birthday - 5th January) and anniversary of his death (1st January) came and went.
My beloved Gunners may have stopped their imminent free-fall by appointing Mikel Arteta as coach. Time will tell, I guess ! I do wonder when the job stopped being "Manager" and became "Coach" ?
On which note, I had best take my leave Dear Reader.
Adieu. Take care. Pip..pip!!
Until next time xxx
