Off to a funeral / memorial service tommorow - went off for a week of cheap winter sun and came back cremated. 46 . Didn't know him for long and nor was a close friend, but a genuinely nice bloke and getting a good turnout accordingly.

Their is always a reminder that yer never know what is left on yer own clock......
