The one thing I am passionate about...
I have to do some sort of outdoor exercise every week, always have done. Generally cycling and running, walks, climbing, kayaking and football once upon a time.I like more sedate pastimes too, reading, writing, going to see live music. And I love travelling, around the UK and overseas. Not many countries left!
I typically spend my leisure time
A bit of repetition here; the great outdoors, the great indoors, the great overseas...........
The most influential person in my life has been
Oh wow, not easy. I'm not looking for exact fit, that would be boring. A fault with this site? A team-mate, someone to walk through life shoulder-to-shoulder, cuddle-up with whilst doing nothing much, after something mutually interesting, exercise-wise, day trip, etc.
The first thing people notice about me
Its not long before I think if something witty to say, or idiotic if whoever it is happens to be in a bad mood. I smile, I pay attention..........
The last book I read and enjoyed
I have read 'For Whom the Bell Tolls' by Hemingway twice. Can't think of many other books I have done that with
The three things which I am most thankful for
- My parents, still going strong at 80-plus
- My three amazing and talented grown-up children
- Good health and eternal optimism
The one thing I wish MORE people would notice about me
I look pretty ordinary, but have had an extraordinary life. Then again, I don't mind going under the radar. I'm probably not one for wanting to be noticed, but I would like to think that I come across as a genuine chap, a bright spark.
Friends Describe me as
Energetic, Intelligent, Optimistic, Physically Fit
A little more about me
Talk to me! I could write reams, but that could be boring, and you do not have the time! Too many other profiles to look at. But if you do hear me, I think you would see why it is a good idea!
