Please don't be put off by my chronological age, my ex, and the mother of my sons is 47
I'm quite a smarty pants, and was a Mensan for a while, too many goatees and bow ties for mine. I have an enquiring mind and an extensive general knowledge ( a head full of trivia). I'd call myself a man for all seasons, but look what happened to him.
Time away on land or water has great appeal, as does travel. So many places so little time.
I'm quite a young 65, and have two sons aged 12 and 10 I care for on three afternoons per week. Generous colleagues and friends say I'm more like 50 (my sons' mother is 19 years my junior) and I have no intention of retiring for at least two years, when I will be able to do so reasonably comfortably. Oops, just been made redundant, such is the lot of your humble civil servant these days.
I can be quite quirky, complex at times, and childlike at others. I posses a sharp wit and a broad sense of humour, including a range of appalling 'dad' jokes e.g. 'I'm hungry' 'Hi hungry, I'm Czechoslovakia'. Or, which knight invented the round table? It was, of course, Sir Cumference.
LOVE Sailing, and was an award winning navigator. My Sydney to Hobart days are behind me, but I still harbour the notion that one day I'll get to sail round Cape Horn. Currently shopping for another yacht..update, bought a 31' trimaran! Have recently engaged in Karate with number one son and am enjoying the benefits of that and cycling with both of them.
Finally, I am the father of two very fine young boys, 10 and 12, whose care well being and education are naturally very important to me. It seems I also need to say here that I'm not looking for a mother for them, they already have a very good one of those.
