February the 4th 2024

This is the first time that I've written this section since December 2023 and much has happened over the last two months.

Firstly I've taken a much needed break to New Zealand and Australia where I spent time with my old boss at the winery. Sadly Chris, his wife finds herself trapped inside a body that is is very frail and whilst being fed through a tube directly into her stomach and unable to walk or talk is still the same wonderful lady that greeted me each morning for five years with a smile and a kiss. This alone if nothing else has  convinced me that my decision to retire now is the right thing to do. I need time to spend with family and friends before it's too late.
