Jonathan: Email notification this morning of the expiry in seven days of the domain jonathanbridge.co.uk . It’s the domain that we set up in early 2003, just after moving to Uist, for my self-employed professional work as a Chartered Civil Engineer. Using those words already seems strange – was that really me? – yet it’s not even a year since I ‘retired’ from all that. No leaving party or first pension payment – just a discontinuance. Or perhaps less sudden than that suggests – more a piece-meal letting go: unsubscribing, not renewing, thanks-but-no-thanks emails to offers of work, ignoring emails … until, eventually, there’s nothing to remind me of what dominated my life for 40 years. But not quite yet, it seems … or possibly ever: our home and our lives here in Uist are an enduring reminder of the good that came to us through that domain jonathanbridge.co.uk – and the good work done contributing to public works large and small throughout the UK and abroad, over four decades.
