We haven't disappeared off the face of the earth, we are still alive and kicking in Essex. We just have not stopped since last Christmas, as Wizzard said in the song "I wish it could be Christmas every day". Well it has been, Bessie has remained in storage since last year without turning a wheel.
However, we have now decided that 2016 is the right time to retire and move to either Norfolk or Suffolk. So with very healthy balance sheets both businesses will be on the market in March along with the house.
Al and Mo It is great to hear from you. How are you both keeping? You will miss the work and all the stress, but this will be worth it as you will be able to spend time in Bessie. You will wonder how you had time to work.
