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

    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!

    Ah that's a shame, sorry to hear that.

    Surely that wouldn't take more than 10 mins!
    BR14 will be back soon enough as CUK's leading angry little repressed homosexual, and we can go back to baiting him.
