This isn't yet another post about the expected grandchild! It is an inspiring story from today's papers about a retired dentist and his wife about to start a new life in New Zealand. You may think there is nothing very unusual about a couple deciding to emigrate on their retirement but Mr King-Turner is 102 and his wife 87 years old.
Why do they want to change their lives so dramatically at their age? Mr King-Turner explains: "I like New Zealand. The way of life is much the same as here but it is not so crowded and the weather is better." He also gives us all some sound advice: if you want to do something, do it straight away. I think I might frame his next words to inspire me through 2008:
"What's important is that when I'm 105 I don't want to be thinking 'I wish I had moved to the other side of the world when I was 102.' "
