Back in Beautiful Dorset

Here I am in lovely Christ Church Dorset in the south west part of the UK. I am staying in a great home in the centre of town. My landlady Jane is a sailor and is now crewing on a ship to Portugal!

The weather is highly unusual. I haven’t seen rain in the 6 weeks I have been in the UK and it is very warm; too warm for me.

I have personal trainer, to help me get in shape. It is very difficult here to keep weight in line. Low fat items are very rare and the desserts, I have just quit eating.

I am looking very seriously at changing my residency from Canada to UK. We shall see what makes sense from a tax point of view!

Lots to visit such as Queen Victoria’s summer home and I will take some scenic train trips into Scotland. I just love the train. I can get to London direct in just under 2 hours and with my rail pass, brilliant!! I was in London last week and the heat was unbearable. In the south, we have at least the sea breezes.

I am still very busy with interviews for new book. I have competed about 20 so far. I am really enjoying the process. There is lots of excellent Information to deal with, which will be a lot of work. I have started to do research and make approaches on finding an agent.

I will be attending a Prom concert held at the Royal Albert Hall with my friend Simon in London. I am going up to Bakewell to see Jenny in the Peak district, which I am told is very beautiful. Then off to Canada in September and India in October to finish interviews, I hope.

I saw the musical Hamilton that has won all the awards in USA and UK. I always go to the box office for tickets to the theatre. This time a gentlemen in front of me was returning a ticket in the front row and I got it for an excellent price. Tina Turner is next show on my list.

My interest in politics is like watching a soap opera with President Trump as the star.

  1. Hi Betty Thanks for your recent update note; it is always so good hearing from you and so glad the news is all good! Sounds as though you are having perfect weather; enjoy and know it may not last! Fascinating that you are thinking of moving to UK permanently; please keep me posted on your decision! I would have thought that tax-wise it would be more expensive over there, it always used to be, but I no longer keep track of the details! All is well here and we are trying to relax and enjoy our summer weather, not going far until we come to England in the Fall. Take care and please stay in touch, love as always Prue >
