I’m a toolmaker by trade, still working hard programming, setting and running CNC mills and lathes. I do a 72 miles round trip each day for work, driving through some of the most beautiful countryside rural England has to offer along the Wylye Valley next to Salisbury Plain in Wiltshire.
I’ve been married to my Irish wife Catherine for 21 years, and we have two children, Sam, 19 and Megan, 17. I also have two grown up children from being married before, Gary, 35 with two boys, Eddie and Alfie, and Jeani, 31 also with two boys, Alfee and Max.
I love walking, gardening, cooking, reading, music and good wine! I’m also a fanatical cricket fan, and firmly believe that if all the guns were put down and factions settled their differences on the field, countries would all settle down peacfully and moan about the umpires….much more civilised, and a hell of a lot cheaper.
I blog intermittently as I think of something, or shit happens! I love so many blogs, and read all of them, everyone should read them, there’d be more laughter and a lot more understanding in the world!
