    Couple of weeks ago Steve suffered a massive heart attack whilst at home, luckily he recognised the signs and rang for his own ambulance. Rest of the day luck backed by the skill of the people in the NHS made sure he survived to fight another day.

    Since he came back home we've been enjoying a bit of mutual piss taking here and on the phone which is a sure sign he is on the mend.
