I live on the beautiful north coast of Northern Ireland, known as the Causeway Coast because of the Giant’s Causeway ( http://www.nationaltrust.org.uk/giants-causeway), site of the famous basalt columns. I live about 5 miles from the sea and am lucky enough to be surrounded by many beautiful beaches, Castlerock; Downhill (my personal favourite); Benone; Portrush; Portstewart; Portballintrae etc. I recently made to decision to leave my job of 20 plus years with no job to step into. This was quite an easy decision to make because it came with a bit of a redundancy money and the chance to evaluate my life, take a bit if a break and spend the summer with my children. My mission? To simplify my life. I decided to start this blog as a diary of this new and exciting phase of my life.
