Retirement

Leopold has finally decided to retire-again. Yes he retired from medicine nearly 8 years ago, but since then he has sat on the board of 3 different hospitals. As he reached the big seven oh this year and I am not far behind him, he has decided it is time for us to leave Cape Town and set off for the wine country and realise our dreams.
I shall definitely miss Cape Town, it’s buzz and hub, it’s beauty in the summer, the society, but I shall stay in touch with my many charities, through email and phone, although I may limit the number and the amount of work I am prepared to do. Neither Leo nor I are fooled into thinking we have forever, we are no spring chickens anymore, and we went to relax and enjoy the time we have left in this world. The estate is far too big for us now all our birds have flown the nest, and even with a house staff it seems so empty, a nice little hom enear a vineyard where we can wine taste until the end of days, has always been our dream.
