Well, it’s finished, and I’m now ready to move on! The price was a bit lower perhaps than I expected, but this has all been about making a clean break and moving on, so that’s what I intend to do.
I would like to say many thanks to all who have helped out with the preparation and organisation of the auction, the website maintenance, the publicity, and all the stuff that has gone on behind the scenes. It has been a lot harder than I ever imagined it might be, but a lot more interest has been shown the world over than I ever expected, or even imagined in my wildest dreams. Biggest thanks of all to my brilliant web designer, who did all of this in spare time, working around a full-time job and other committments. This wouldn’t have been half the fun it has been without your help, support and suggestions.
It has been an absolutely amazing and fun experience, and I have learned a lot, both about myself and about the world in general.
Finally, I would like to thank everyone out there who has taken an interest, and to all who have felt moved to email and offer support, advice, comments, and in many cases to share your own “blindsided” experriences. What an honour.
I now starting to making plans as to what I will do next, and I am very excited about them. Alot of my new ideas and goals come from comments and questions on the GuestBook and in the Bulletin Boards, so thanks again for giving me a new direction.
Many people have asked if I will be keeping a blog about what happens to me after this, and where I end up travelling to. Absolutely! I am very flattered that there are a few out there that are interested enough to ask. More to follow in tomorrows blog, when I get myself organised here….
Keep an eye on this blog over the next few days for updates on how the settlement is progressing, and when I expect to set off.
Once again, huge thanks to all of you. It’s been great fun! Best wishes to all.
