Counting Down...


I'm counting down the hours and days until I finish working in an environment that has served me pretty well for nine years...

Twenty-four years if you count the total of my career to date in the Civil Service...

Yes, I'm a Snivel Serpent, if I may say so myself!

It's a lot to let go of. To retreat, or retire from. Not that I'm retiring. Not yet!

I'd expected to spend the rest-ish of my days in the Service of the Crown - Until I was able to retire, hopefully comfortably, to a bijou little apartment-ette in Nice with two dachshunds and more cats than I could care to swing...

France.

Nice. Nice...

That wasn't to be, so now another future awaits me instead.

It always does. For all of us.

Even in the midst of huge change, turmoil, torment, pain, chaos, loss, fear, doubt and despair.

There is hope, or faith, or something to hold onto, to hang back for, to await with bated breath...

There is.

Just wait and see...

Eight days.

I'm counting down.

Nice? Too much dog poo on the streets in the south of France.

I'd recommend Bognor.
