After I sold French Sole back in late 2017, I planned to completely retire, do nothing at all - just laze around enjoying life, my grandchildren and planning renovations in my garden.
Christmas and the New Year are now safely over. The turkey carcass has been thrown away, the decorations are back in the attic, thank you letters have all been written and posted and finally the New Year's Resolutions written out and stuck onto the fridge door for a quick reminder, should I lapse and forget them.
I spent this summer at my villa in Portugal with my family and grandchildren who were visiting from their home in California. Lovely long days spent at the beach - mainly watching out for huge and horrible Portuguese “Man of War” jelly fish!
In my long absence, French Sole was quietly sold and taken efficiently into new owner/management, so I can now relax and say officially “I have retired”.
