I'm David....I was an Accountant from 1974...and since 2003 I work for Her Majestys Revenue & Customs. After 10 years service at HMRC I am being allowed unpaid leave to visit family in Australia & NZ. Gillan retired (early) in May 2012 after working the last 32 years as a Health Visitor (i.e Community Nurse). Our 2 children (22 & 25) are green with envy because they aren't on this trip!! We love travelling and meeting people (we went to New York for our 30th Wedding Anniversary, Gillian wonders if Sydney can 'top' that). This trip can't come quickly enough....it's very exciting. I was 60 in June this year (Gillian is 56)...but age is just a number and we're both fairly well preserved!
