About Me


I’m a retired English teacher. I had to stop working early after being badly injured by a car. I can walk with sticks, but my mobility is limited. I experience constant nerve pain which makes life tough. I’m a quiet, polite man and used to enjoy gardening and running a website for my local community. These activities are difficult for me now and I find it hard to know how to get through each day. I try to follow politics/current affairs a little, love good food and like to watch birds feeding in our garden. I live with my wife who supports me but this extra help will allow us both some independence.
