That aside, what else defines me?
I'm from oop north, as you would normally tell straight away from my accent. That part north of Watford and south of Edinburgh that BBC maps generally show as "here be dragons".
This isn't true of course. Geoff from Byker Grove was a well known monster hunter in his youth and the dragon problem is well under control.
I was brought up with a father who wanted me to appreciate the outdoors, and a younger sister who needed someone to watch musicals with, so I know 30 kinds of knot and all the words to several Gilbert and Sullivan operas. One day this combination will come in useful, I just know it. (Perhaps on this very site!)
