Laura at Move to Portugal introduced me to a very inspiring new blog.
Its called Early Retirement the Middle Way. A bit of a pedestrian title for a very un-pedestrian site. Written by a woman who really seems to have got a handle on life. I read it from end to end this afternoon (no, of course I shouldn't have been doing housework). I am inspired. I love travel, books, art, and a myriad other things, and often I am inclined to leave them out of my life as I economise & simplify. Hmmm. I need to have a re-think.
