Neil Robin

After an inauspicious five years at the Guernsey Grammar School for Boys, when greater effort was paid to larking about than to academic study, I somehow attained four O-levels, including English Language and English Literature. I had hoped to stay on for A-level English, but the headmaster informed my parents that to do so would be a complete waste of everybody's time!
Hence, a thirty-year career with the Guernsey Civil Service and then, once my children had left school and the mortgage cleared, a decision to revisit my affection for English with three years as a reporter with the Guernsey Press and nine years in public relations.
All of this has led to the blissful state that is retirement, affording me the time and de-cluttering of mind to write this book. I hope it provides some enjoyment for a few people as we make our way through these modern times.
