Magazine style section with articles inspired by Brexit. To say I am not a fan of Brexit is putting it far too mildly, but I am taking some Brexiters at their word and trying to draw comfort from the tribal homeland and look optimistically for the things that "can make us great again" or where we can "take back control". 

Connecting with nature and contemplating my family's history in the area is helping, but then again I enjoyed those things before, and while now they provide solace from the bereavement like affect of Brexit they are not improved by it. I hadn't actually lost them.

Expanding on the theme of Out and About, adding in the liberation of retirement (my personal Work Exit), a move which will definitely leave me with less money, and chronicling my attempts to develop new income streams provides a (loose) parallel to the current challenges of the country. So far I think I have made more tangible progress than HMG, but I seriously hope they get their act together soon and leave the messing about to me.
