Yes, it was a great disappointment when my early commercial ventures failed.
First up I went into the ironing business. Sales were flat.
So I tried a regional agricultural scheme. The theory was that we would grow heathland vegetation in the Hull area, to sell as a convenient source of sheep fodder.
We called the company "Ferns for ewe".
When that failed, I branched out with a deckchair company. But it soon folded.
