Digger has pulled his proverbial socks up and been for a meeting today to start negotiations to potentially sell his business. Now we are talking the most preliminary of preliminaries here, so we are not holding our breath just yet. He is invigorated however with the possibility of a (small to middling) lump sum to show as a return for the daily slog, in all weathers, that he has invested in the company over the last four years. For you dear reader, this could be the very start of something good. If Digger is not tied here any more, then in theory neither is Tiddler and Thrifter, so the big OFF (off island, off grid, off on a jolly) may be that little bit more attainable. We are all watching this space.
