2004. I just wonder why you are asking.
Because the thought sprung to mind.
But you normally think more deeply than that .............
Sometimes I think shallowly as well. But not at the same time.

Left the UK in 1978. Spent years in Ireland and the USA. The last 35 years in France as an employee and now retired with a French/UK/Irish and US pension - what a nightmare that was. During my French working years I did spend a lot of time in the UK, Sweden, Switzerland and Germany - which gave me broad view of the world but I missed a large part of my children's upbringing. Never mind I have a couple of grandchildren living around the corner that I spend lot's of time with, long may it last.

Weighed anchor and left England for good on 9/11/2001. Easy to remember.
Visit historic Barnard Castle. Lockdown day trips now available.
