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

    Wish List

    This is a page of stuff I want. It doesn’t include the link to the Amazon wish list but enables me to put loads of non-Amazon goodies in a place where strange people who actually want to buy me things can find them.

    Palm Zire 31

    I recently bought a Palm Zire 31 PDA (with GPS option for the car) which was a bargain from Makro at £149.99 (I’ll look back on this in a few years and laugh).

    Having played with this for a bit, it’s now left in the car as a dedicated GPS unit. I think I left Su Doku on it in case I get bored in the car waiting to collect the kids etc.

    Palm Tungsten C

    I’m also lucky enough to have my late father-in-law’s Palm Tungsten C which is an order of magnitude better than the Zire 31.

    I’ve got quite a few applications including a media player (cool video) and Su Doku for those idle moments.

    I’m still reviewing what else I need – the Tungsten has built in Wi-Fi so that’s one accessory that’s not necessary. It doesn’t have Bluetooth though and that’s the only way to use my mobile phone to get online so that’s something I probably need.

    13th November 2006: We have an increasingly large collection of remotes in the house and Maddie usually manages to misplace one or two on any given day. I spotted this and it’s definitely on the wish list: Novii remote for Palm.
