All about me!

I cannot believe how long it's been since I wrote anything in my Diary!
I received a commnet yesterday on one of my posts and I suddenly remembered that I have this blog and should write my thoughts because that's what this diary is all about.

Since last writing I have obtained two degrees, a BA Open and a BA Honours in Literature. So I have accomplished something.

I am trying to learn French but find it difficult and sometimes quite tedious! I prefer Enlish Literature! Oh well, I think I will keep trying with French.

My joy of travelling around the world has been curtailed because no insurance company will cover me because of my age (84) and ailment of angina. I still love to travel - be it by air, train, sea, bus or by car. I love to be on the move. I think I love the travel almost as much as getting 'there'. My travel space is now restricted to Europe and UK.

Enough of me... I want to post something about someone I admire so please read on

I have this hankering to go now with Science. I want to learn technology which seems such a switch at the age of 84, but I have an insatiable desire to acquire knowledge in many forms. My mind is hungry to learn. I have this aspiration to be a writer, but that too has been put on the shelf. I really must get on with these tasks that I have set myself.
