    The latter I think.
    My health has taken the dive again and after a few other things came up and I am struggling to fight now. I managed 2 1/2 years after I nearly died. I have been getting totally wiped with face to face client stuff recently. I get tired more easily too now and need to sleep during the day. That's knocked on to other stuff like The Trade House Magazine which was a struggle to get out for the winter 2020 edition. I am absolutely gutted to be retiring at 45 but its a case of no other option.

    I am completing an estate restructure strategy and that will be the last "contract" done. I know the client well and thankfully they have been supportive. This will be complete in next fortnight and the client is happy so far.

    I will have to find something to occupy my time and will do that in due course. I have a few personal projects to look at and I am considering a small lodge in the countryside as a getaway bolthole . I am still chasing the dream of being able to complete the Telegraph crossword in under 7 minutes!

    He got on the wrong train and ended up in Aldershot. The call of the spud was too strong.

    I’ve know court for many a year, 8 pints of Guinness with him in under 2 hours still sets a record, his good lady must be one in a million to put up with him

    Best memory of was him and Watty (be along shorty) almost going out for a square go at one and only Glasgow PCG meeting
