My self-summary
Hello everyone, my name is Tim and I'm an alco...hang on, wrong website...
What I’m doing with my life
Recently moved down to the Solent and am training as an air traffic controller. No, we do not wave glowsticks at aeroplanes - those would be marshallers you're thinking of!

I love to travel when I get the opportunity and made a solo motorbike trip to Norway a couple of years ago - and as a result have vowed never to complain about English weather again! Would love to go back again as the scenery is stunning, the folk are friendly and I'm determined to improve my Norwegian. Så hvis du snakker norsk, jeg vil gjerne å høre fra deg ^_^

Curling up with a good book makes for an enjoyable evening (although can you call aviation law study guides enjoyable?) and you'll occasionally catch me at the theatre - there's nothing like a good story, in whatever form it's told. I do a bit of scale modelling too and have even given sculpting a very unsuccessful go. Not always stuck inside though. After the voices in my head told me it was a smashing idea, I ran (or rather limped) a Tough Mudder course last year - all the coffee cake and flapjacks during training clearly helped out! Just signed up for Tough Guy next January, as wading through a frozen northern river in the winter is clearly a great idea. Cycling's good fun too, and I'd like to have a good excuse to dust off my squash racket and riding boots. Can we do both at the same time and invent a new sport?
I’m really good at
-Flying (or would like to be; I've never damaged an aeroplane, does that count?)
-Impressions of Marvin the Paranoid Android
The first things people usually notice about me
That I have an immense library of interesting but irrelevant facts - still waiting for that call from QI.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
If I gave even a vaguely accurate list it'd be 2018 before you finished reading it. I've challenged myself to a book a month this year and so far the schedule has been adhered to! But if I left any of my books for my children, they'd be:
-His Dark Materials
-The Hunger Games
-The Old Kingdom series
-Artemis Fowl
-A Series of Unfortunate Events

I enjoy cooking with no major mishaps so far - although if you could teach me to make fudge reliably then I really would adore you forever!
The six things I could never do without
Exclamation marks - how many have I used so far?
My hobbies.
My home and family.
My motorbike.
Malcolm Tucker. Politics would be much livelier with him in the reins.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The fever-induced plot of a final, final Artemis Fowl I dreamed last year. Utterly tragic but it would be bizarrely fitting.

The fact my Patronus is apparently a ginger cat.
On a typical Friday night I am
In, usually with a good film or a good book or with whichever hobby is taking my time at the moment - unless HIGNFY is on, then definitely that!
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I have yet to use 'lackadaisical' in a sentence.
You should message me if
-You have passion for something, don't think aeroplanes are devices of the Devil and fancy an adventure - well, we'll start with that! Owning dogs would be a lovely bonus...
