No tears goodbye.

Should have risked the Italian venture when the offer was on the table.

I sit here in North Wales thinking that I'd be in a Manhattan office designing the cooling for a new skysc****r with the Rainbow Rooms booked for tonight with some classy Upper East side MILF divorcee.

Instead I'm going home to the same girl for chili con carne and rice, and to moan about the lack of any input my two adult sons have into the finances, cleaning or cooking in my heavily mortgaged house, and how my pension is so shite that I will need my Mum and Dad to snuff it before I can retire.

still.. good news about the chilli

Not moving to Canada when the door was open. The fact my first was on her way put the breaks on things but I really wish we'd have just gone for it.

Spending the criminal injuries compensation I received, on various shenanigans during the summer of 1991, rather than put a deposit down on a house.

Thinking about it, the latter two are probably my Mrs regrets rather than mine...
I took the free bursary at Bedeís and you missed nothing. Well, given the date, not counting the buggery.

went off the rails when I was in my late teens and it was hard on my family. Hit my dad especially and he died a couple of years later before I'd pulled myself back together and got to university and all that. Still feel I contributed to his poor health. Probably didn't but the thought is always there. Regret just being such a dick back then. Especially now I've got sons of my own.

On the positive side, last conversation with him I was working away in North Wales and I'd called home to speak to my mum but she wasn't in. Usually we'd have nothing to say but we chatted away about the FA cup semi replay v Oldham. Spoke longer than I can ever remember us doing before. He died a week later.

I had a job offer in Canada, accepted it, got my visa then didn't bother going as I got offered a permanent job in Norway so stayed there instead. Not a regret as such as it turned out alright but I always wonder how things would have been different.
