With the current virus situation is not really worth going out as most is closed or confine to a few people with reservations so we again stay home. Nevertheless, the last few years, we had decided to stay home and watch TV with my boys and Dad. We are very far family, the closest is about 8 hrs drive away.

Another year goes by, and I continue working from home with full pay until March 2021 when I can ask for my retirement early with agreement with my firm. The sensations are weird, glad to finally make it and spent more time at home ,but also sad that my travels will be cut in half as no more business trips to far away lands. I will continue doing some consulting work with a couple of outfits from Paris but these will be mostly in France. Maybe lucky some outings in Europe.

My father has become sick too and need to take care of him, gladly my boys help a lot. He is 85 years old and lost some motoring skills already with diabetes is more complicated. Luckily we have nurses coming home every day and the basic needs are walking distance from the house including pharmacy ,doctors, shopping etc.

It is sadly, the end of the road and other than some updates/revisions I am already doing the posts in my blog will be less eventually by next March. I will try to remain active in WordPress thus and just sign up for another year.

Of course, on a more personal level on trips, we will be passing by my belle France more into other regions and for sure Spain. The family is kept abreast by social media and whatsapps modes, is the modern way of family gathering!

Therefore, wishing you the best and do keep in touch. I thank you very much for reading my blog, Paris1972-Versailles2003  has been uplifting and deeply appreciate all comments over the years since 26 November 2010! There has been some old virtual friends gone and some new ones I see, all welcome and glad you made my day in time. I won’t be leaving just giving way upfront notice the posts will be less from March 2021.

Some statistics , WordPress give us and I look at it every year at least. Again thank you all possible thanks to you all.
