Thank you for visiting my blog.
I am a retired nurse from Bristol in South West England. I am married with five grownup children. four boys and a girl , one grandson and a cat. My hobbies are travelling, history and reading which I hope to share with you.
In my spare time I enjoy walking particularly around historic sites.
I chose the title the Platinum Line for my blog as Platinum as well as being a valuable metal is associated with the number seventy particularly a seventieth wedding anniversary and I hope to still be blogging in three years time when I am seventy. My tagline is financing the fun after retirement and I would like to share tips on having fun while staying solvent.
My Local Patch
When I started this site I intended to write a travel blog. However I found many of my visitors were from overseas particularly the U.S.A and I thought they might be interested in learning more about Bristol and the surrounding area so I have written some posts for them. I have visited some of these sites as a mystery shopper.
