Aside from the girl in the adjacent office with the demeanour of a slightly-drugged hippy, a gorgeously-languid lilt, and deep, deep, deep dark eyes…

Long-Term
Manage my (albeit currently mainly putative) investments in a balanced way sufficient to fund my retirement
Maintain my health (as far as that’s within my control) sufficient to keep doing what I enjoy
Refuse to let my chronological age inhibit me

Medium-Term
Retire in 3 and-a-bit years via doing what my current employer likes me to do
Have as much fun as I can during what is, admittedly, a somewhat unbalanced existence
Get into 34” jeans with no overhang, since that’s my self-imposed condition for buying a Moto Guzzi V7 Racer
Buy a Moto Guzzi V7 Racer

Short-Term
Learn the control that is necessary to be able to go round within 18 over
Get more sleep
Exercise more
Talk to that trusted IFA…

Great one. I should have said this.

I'm shite at golf and broke 100 for the first time a few weeks back. Then shot 103 at AD National and 102 at Al Badia.

Both rounds were great until about the 12th at AD and the 14th at Al Badia where I shot a 10 both times. If I didn't have such a stinking hole which stood out like a sore thumb then I'd be under 100 consistently.

I don't want to be great, I just want to not be utterly shite.

That's quite impressive

By the way, can you recommend anywhere for lunch in Durham?

Awesome.

By distressed do you mean knackered or off banks etc?

Do my second sub10 hour Ironman triathlon
Qualify and race at the world champs in Hawaii
Podium for GB at the Euro Champs next June in Austria

Workwise, continue to enjoy and develop with my current company.
Move eventually to either Houston or back to UK

We just sold our house in scotland so looking to invest somewhere.

To find a cure for MS.

That's about it really, nothing much of any interest.

Go a whole day without stressing about people's driving
