About Me

I was born in Luton, known for hat making, Vauxhall cars, London Luton Airport and a great football team who once beat Arsenal at Wembley in a Cup Final, currently languishing in non-league football for the 4th season. I moved to Edinburgh in 1990 and now live in Leith, Edinburgh's 'waterfront'.

Married for 24 years to Louise (who is on day release from Fife), I have 4 children: Holly (aged 28) who's studying medicine at Dundee University, William (aged 26) at the Army Foundation College, Harrogate, Alice (aged 23) and Maddie (aged 16).

We live in a 226 year old Georgian house which we are slowly renovating. We once had a note from an artist posted through the letterbox asking if our semi-derelict house was available to rent as studio space. Things have improved lately; the stonework has been repaired and we have shiny new railings. Just the inside to do now then.

Current CNPS score: 999

    Maddie update

    Maddie 30/10/05It’s OK, I changed the dressing last night and it’s not that bad. I don’t think she’ll have a Harry Potter scar after all.

    I bought a new digital camera yesterday (Pentax Optio S45) which was a bit of a bargain in Makro. It’s just a budget compact so I’m not expecting fantastic results but it’s small enough to slip in your pocket. My ‘other’ digital camera is an Olympus bought second hand from Scott in the pub and it’s a 1 Mega-pixel brick. It’s also so fussy about exposure and focussing that Louise has never managed to take a decent photo with it. Hopefully this new one is a bit more ‘point and click’ so I’ll be putting a lot more on Flickr in future.

    By the way, this is the first post from work.
