Twice already in the last 5 years I have had to say goodbye to youngsters as they ‘left the nest’ and went out into the big wide world to fend for themselves at university and, ultimately, beyond. Over the last year, Max has become very much a part of this crazy CFZ household and Jon and I treat him as a 'nephew'. Now it is his turn to step through the doors of university life with all its various attractions, diversions and, of course the reason he is there, studying.
Max, we will miss you. We wish you all the very best at Bristol and hope you have a great time.
PS: Erm .... you have remembered to pack your pens, pencils and writing paper as well as your hip flask, best babe-magnet clobber, and copy of Tarkus haven’t you?
