Ah. I was using English English, rather than American English! "Chuffed" is extremely pleased. "to bits" is like to pieces. As in "I hate those meeces to pieces" (cartoon circa 1960, possibly Sylvester the cat?). I'm showing my age now.

Anyway, I'm chuffed to bits for Aiden, he is an excellent bloke. When I had to give up playing, he sent me a lovely pm, sympathising, and giving helpful and timely advice, probably because he had empathy due to going through troubles of his own. I was really touched, and his pm really helped me at the time. I have loads of time for him, and wish for as many good things as possible to come his way.

He's a top bloke. (Hope I don't have to translate that!)

Man, love the way you're working up the ladder. I'm not in a position to do what you're doing, but in an alternate universe, I'd be right there with you.
