I am easy-going, intelligent, tolerant and fun-loving. I work in the R&D department of a healthcare company. I like playing games of all sorts, such as badminton, table-tennis, board/card games, for fun and I am a good winner/loser.
I like sunny weather holidays and snorkelling in warm water. I have driven to the South of France quite a few times and once drove to Tuscany for a holiday - about 1000 miles each way - but the weather was unseasonably awful, rainy and chilly for July.
I know which end of a drill to use and I installed a new kitchen in my house in 2009, I did all but the electrics and tiling the floor.
I really like unusual and quirky things. I am currently growing giant bamboo in my small garden. It is only 2 metres tall at the moment, but I have hopes it will take off this Summer. I wonder when my neighbours will notice...
Thanks for visiting.
Movies I have liked include Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, The Big Lebowski, Black Book, Amelie, Le Bossu, Grosse Pointe Blank, The Princess Bride and The Island.
My music tastes vary really widely from classical to rock/pop to world music.
Food: Mexican, Indian, Chinese, roast dinner, tart au citron. I can cook all of these, although I am not afraid to use cook-in sauces on occasion. Cooking a tart au citron was a new challenge for 2013; I have successfully cooked one for dinner parties twice recently following a Mary Berry recipe. This year I am trying to get a good recipe for Kouign Amann.
Warm Summer sunshine,
