Will be moving to PP early next year, scary prospect

Hi all, my name is Tom and just joined. Will be moving to PP early next year, scary prospect. But at 59 and worked my arse off since i was 15 with not a lot to show for it i just feel now that life is too short and need to change before i wake up one morning dead and it's too late. Can't afford to retire so need to earn a living when here,i[at]m a goldsmith by trade and don't think there is much scope with this so am thinking of opening a hair/beauty salon with my Cambodian girlfriend and I am going back to school to train to be a hairdresser/barber ( don't all cringe at once) we all have to take chances in life" don't we"?. Anyway any thoughts guys. Will be in PP for a few days early October if anyone would like to catch up. Thanks for your time, and maybe see you around,

Best wishes
