Last week I resigned from the car auction. It was not an easy choice as I have worked with my boss for 17 years. However, the ankle is not healing as quickly as I would have liked, so I took the plunge, sold my shares in the business and am concentrating on getting well, and doing a few personal things. I am still auctioning houses on the weekends and will have a chat to a few firms in a month or two, looking to work as a contract valuer and /or auctioneer.

I turn 50 today and hope this decade is as interesting as the last. Here's to taking risks!


  1. Bravo. You have a plan & it's sound. Onward!

  2. Happy Birthday, Simon,
    and many many beautiful things to come in the years ahead! You are one special human being and will master anything that comes your way, and brilliantly so. I am sure of that.
    With much affection,

    “Hope” is the thing with feathers—
    That perches in the soul—
    And sings the tune without the words—
    And never stops—at all—

    And sweetest—in the Gale—is heard—
    And sore must be the storm—
    That could abash the little Bird
    That kept so many warm—

    I’ve heard it in the chillest land—
    And on the strangest Sea—
    Yet, never, in Extremity,
    It asked a crumb—of Me.

    (Emily Dickinson)
