Joined 8 years ago from Manchester, England




So somehow i managed to get to 26 years old without so much as a warning, unless the previous 25 birthdays count!

UPDATE: Now 28.....where the heck does time go!

I was born in the John Radcliffe Hospital in Oxford. Lived in Blackbird Leys, Blewbury Village, Didcot. At 18 I moved up to the north (reluctantley) when my step dad got a relocation in his job. Ended up in Lincolnshire amidst the villagers of Messingham. Now this sounds better thab saying I moved from Oxford to Scunthorpe (which is where I basically was). Once I got bored of this myself and my girlfriend got up and left one day to try out the realms of London, first stop......Greenwich. Managed to find our way to Covent Garden. Which made for a beautiful lifestyle. Then the next few years I floated around Kettering, Rugby, Cambridge, Leeds, Bradford to then serve the previous 3 years at Teesside University, aka Middlesbrough.

I've been through several career avenues in my life starting at paper boy and shop boy during my teen years in my parnets shop in Blewbury (Oxfordshire). At 16 moved into the gardening section of a local Do It All store in Didcot. This gave me my independence from my parents, but to them I was letting the family down! As i always did. Anyway that's enough for now. If you want to know more read my blog's.

Before I stop writing this Bio though I will however tell you about my new found interest in photography. I have a new camera that I will continue to experiment with in order to teach myself as I believe in self teachings very much, as do most males I believe as instruction manuals are for the weak (or the intelligent, i can never decide).

Finally my spelling has much to be desired at times, to just pretend I'm writing phonetically :-)

Much love
