My husband (Mr. HCB) and I are both Christians, have been married for just over 50 years and have two sons and 3 grandchildren.  

If you want to see what we did to celebrate our Golden Wedding anniversary (6th March 2018) instead of having a party, have a look at my Blips from 20th February to the 19th March 2018.

We love retirement but wonder - as do most retirees we speak to - how we ever found time to go to work and despite what we were told before we retired, we are never bored.

In April 2018, I treated myself to a Canon EOS 200D camera and am struggling to get to grips with it, and am trying to use it more than my iPhone - another steep learning curve, but I will get there.

I gave up with the Canon in late November 2018 and went back to a Panasonic Lumix TZ100.  I wasn't enjoying using the Canon for several reasons, and found it very heavy to carry around, so felt I had given it a good go and must admit I am much happier with the Lumix.

I really enjoying blipping - and can't believe that I have managed to take a photograph and write my journal for almost 6 years, without missing a day.  

I find it quite challenging to take a photograph and then write  something interesting each day that will serve, not only as a reminder to me when I read it later, but also something that will be interesting to those reading my journal.  It is a wonderful community and I am so pleased that I have "met" many like-minded people, not only on Blip, but also in person.  

Life is certainly what you make it, and I can honestly say that life is good at the moment. Long may it continue.
