Geoffs Life After Work !

Life is just beginning

Life Really does go ON

Its been a few weeks since I moved back to Blackpool and I am finding it surprisingly easy to slot back in. I have found a local pub and made great friends,the flat I have moved into is well placed and the only problem being it is on level 2 with NO lift. People have been great with furniture removing and the neighbour below has been a gem !One end of my street is the Blackpool Promenade/Beach and every time I go there memories of my well mis spent youth come flooding back,at the other end of my street is the magnificent water tower ( I have worked inside this building and the echo is fabulous ! especially songs like The Lion Sleeps Tonight and yes  I did !) Hervey Bay is a lovely spot but after being here a while I do not miss it but i  did make some great people there and some not so great.I am currently canvassing for a couple of volunteer jobs and will elaborate more on them if successful .Medically I am being well looked after and I do a lot of “FREE” bus travelling.I have lots of family here and its fantastic I can drop ( or they here) in and see them at any time.My sister in law does a family gathering HUGE Breakfast on Sunday mornings where we all gather to catch up on Gossip!! Nephew has a pub in Preston that we visit frequently and it is reminiscent of pubs of days gone by,PLUS the entertainment is great,even met up with Elvis last week.Christmas this year will be a very special one as my Perth Australian daughter will visit Blackpool with her lovely family.Roll On !! My furniture is mainly second hand  BUT my bed is new,later next month,hopefully,my Australian stuff should arrive.All in All I,m very happy,could have been happier but time to move on    Merry Christmas !!!!!
