My self-summary
Recently moved to Birmingham - on 3 January. Be good to meet some some people and create a friendship group. Hopefully something more will develop.

Well, this probably needs a revamp now, so best try to write something witty and clever, maybe put on a deep quote of some sort.... So I'll go for;

"Hope springs eternal with the human breast." - Alexander Pope
"Go placidly amid the noise and the haste,
and remember what peace there may be in silence." The opening of "Desiderata" by Max Ehrmann.

So hopefully this goes someway to showing I am well read at best, or good at plagiarism at worse!

I'm a loyal, caring chap, who enjoys a game of rugby and eating. Had the great fortune of spending 10 years in a posh private school set on the top of a hill and surrounded by fields.
What I’m doing with my life
Spent three years in the wilderness after university, in which I ended up managing a pub, arguably one of the best periods of my life. Totally by accident as well. Met a group of class people which will always be held dear to me. Lot of interesting life lessons learnt there as well. Even though that paragraph is over seven years old what is said there still stands true!

I now work as an accountant for a surprisingly bespoke company which is once again showing a very different side to the world! It was due to this new job that I relocated to Birmingham.
I’m really good at
I understand that I am good at
- being surprisingly child like
- having the humour of a 6 year old
- having the humour of a 16 year old
- having the humour of a 60 year old
- counting (obviously, hence the accountancy....)
- making scrambled eggs
- getting distracted 15 minutes into a film. In fact I am doing this while watching a film...
- using ellipsis
The first things people usually notice about me
Probably smiling. Not too sure. Possibly hair.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Well, my favourite books have to be; "Thomas the Tank Engine," "Famous Five," "Harry Potter series," "Lord of the Rings Triolgy," Jermemy clarkson books.

Movies; anything with some action and cars and girls - which pretty much puts it down to James Bond - Goldeneye probably being my favourite.

Food; generally eat anything. Not too keen on fish as the bones just tend to be irritating and takes too long to try and sort out! Always love some medium rare steak with chips.
The six things I could never do without
My dog
A job - always seem to be needing money!
I spend a lot of time thinking about
What is the next car I could plausibly and implausibly purchase.

Planning the next adventure or mini excursion. For instance, as I had a free day earlier today (the day of writing this) thought it would be a great idea to pop over to Snowdon National Park.

That failing, when is the next good pint arriving, and how can I be this bad at pool?
On a typical Friday night I am
Used to be at choir practice then choir drinks. Now however in a new area probably playing a computer game or gym. Sad I know, but I'm male. Once established will find a choir. If anyone out there who glances this profile knows of a choir I do welcome a helpful smile!
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I have the ability to identify my faults, and at times they can be numerous. At least there is a starting point to work with.
You should message me if
You feel like it I guess. You never know what's going to happen! As much as I enjoy my own company (talking to oneself is the best way to have a fantastic conversation) the company of another person would be lovely!
