  • Childhood pleasures

    I grew up literally on the beach in one of the most beautiful environments in the country, and I knew it too. I was very fortunate to live there and it features on my profile.
    It is my childhood home and still to this day, no matter where I am in the world, it is and always will be 'home'.

  • I recently learnt...

    About 'Sutton Hoo' and the discovery of a 6th Century Anglo-Saxon burial site that changed the world's perception of the 'Dark Ages'.

    Yes, I am a history nerd, you have been warned.

    I like to think that I'll be back to my hometown and enjoying the good life.

  • Something uncommon about me

    I am extraordinarily messy. Much to my eternal shame.

  • It was better before

    Although the 1950's had its social flaws, I think this was the generation that really had it going for it. The last vestiges of innocence before the human race plunged into anarchy.

  • It is better now

    Social Equality. Planned Parenting. Universal Health Care. A basic welfare system. Multi-culturalism. Greater tolerance and acceptance (despite how hard the media try to tell you otherwise).

  • As a child, I wish...

  • My feeling about the future

    I'm optimistic.

  • My parents and me

    It was a huge age gap and many differences, but that didn't stop me from loving them.

  • My opinion on human nature

    Deep down, everyone has a good side, and a 'human' side that is full of faults, strengths and weaknesses.

  • I feel concerned about...

    The deepening political divide that tears us all apart, all because of what? Which ideology is better? How about caring more for each other and the rock we live on, it's the only home we have.

  • A trick or piece of advice

    Don't be too pushy, let things happen naturally.
