My name is Glyn

Well, that's it folks, I've just resigned. For the last couple of years I've been have a great time, apparently too much of a great time. In recent weeks I have been increasingly aware that I am drinking far too heavily and it has to stop. I am an alcoholic and my last drink (I hope) was at 10pm last night.

It's all well and good drinking all this great 'craft' beer but frankly it's just another alcoholic drink that has helped cause all my problems.

I have just handed over the keys to The Rake to Rich who has been very understanding about the whole thing and has given me sick leave effective immeadiately.

Thanks for reading the blog over the last 18 months, obviously without beer in my life anymore there will be no more Rabid About Beer. My name is Glyn, wish me luck.

I actually believed that for a second.

I actually got a bit sad reading that at first ...

Then I clocked the date.

We have accepted this method of resignation. Thanks for everything, good luck in rehab, and your P45 is in the post!
Understanding - bollocks.

‘Rich who has been very understanding about the whole thing’ — I think that was the bit that gave the game away ;-)

Damn you Glyn, damn you! That totally had me going, until the bit about sick leave - I'm told that unless you go out the door in a box.....

Nice one!

Yes - It was an April Fool, as an alcoholic, do you ever think I'd leave?

Very good mate I too was hooked in.

Glad you're not leaving us as I want to see this face more often:

Glyn's catnip crazy face

Next time you get all reflective, just go get another 'Dons tattoo!

That's the first decent thing you've written in months.

It would be much easy to believe if we were not in April fool day
