My self-summary
Happy go lucky chap with a 5 year old boy, Leo who I love to bits.. happy to try pretty much anything, .. love to do experience things.. currently trying to sort out some microlight flying :-) .. Love walking .. Have a particular affection for the peaks and can be found at the top of mam tor with a tired 5 year old (probably on my shoulders by that point !) on frequent occasion.

Enjoy a nice drink with friends or just slobbing on the sofa with a film on .. Play a bit of badminton and enjoy playing a bit of drums.. although these days its a spare room thing rather than in a pub covered in beer :-) love to spend evenings singing my heart out with someone to dodgy 80's classics lol (don't be too put off by that.. I do other decades too :-))

Have recently started to enjoy photography and so often bore people with my new found understanding of terms like 'depth of field' lol ..

Love a nice meal and a good yabber .. didn't used to be much of a cook but since having Leo am a demon with a recipe book :-) Love genuine people with real opinions on things .. Hate it when people live their life through a front.. life is too short not to be you I think ..

Not religious but enjoy a good debate with my brother who is :-)

Bit of a science geek at times and need a slap when I go off on one about something sciency .. (Ask my mates they will know what I mean :-))

Guess thats about it as a starter for 10 .. feel free to give me a shout if you want to know more..
What I’m doing with my life
Hmmm .. what am I doing with my life.. it's a good question which makes me think .. what AM I doing with my life...Well I suppose when pushed to answer the question I'm trying to give my son the right values and bring him up as best as I can.. I have realised in a big way that life is for living.. perhaps its the 40 thing, so expect to see me on a big motorbike in these parts soon.. trying to live well and be independently happy.. because a wise goblin once told me that only you can make you happy.. you can't rely on others for your own happiness.. (Ok it wasn't a wise goblin but someone equally wise I'm sure).. But really want to meet someone who can share in that with me too.. happiness and experience is definitely more fun when shared i think..
I’m really good at
Erm.. so this is the big yourself up section lol..

I think i'm a pretty good listener .. I read a lot and am interested in lots of areas of science and medicine (stop snoring at the back).. so I often come out with gems when you least expect it.. (some would say occasional know-it-all.. I like to call it knowledgeable.. am I doing this right?.. is there anyone left lol)

I'm also quite good at seeing where people are really coming from I think.. rather than what they put out if that makes sense .. not sure it does so if it doesn't feel free to skip over it... ok struggling with this section.. will come back to it..
The first things people usually notice about me
My face if they are my height .. the top of my head if they are taller and my chest if they are extremely short.. not sure that is the answer required but its the only one i can think of right now..
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Its got to be the Shawshank Redemption filmwise .. was a better feel good film ever made?

Musically I am a dinosaur .. as a rule anything you can sing to.. I am an eighties teen so it was all new romantics .. Bit of Floyd and Genesis.. (Told you I am a musical dinosaur) .. if you force me to the current era its anything soulful with decent lyrics that doesn't seem manufactured.. quite like a bit of Pink.. she has an amazing voice and says what she thinks which I respect..

Books I like all sorts.. tend to get hooked on authors and read everything they have done and get frustrated that they don't write as fast as I read them .. most unreasonable..
Six things I could never do without
My boy..
My friends.. especially those who know me as well as or better than I know me..

Some gadget things .. Phone.. music.. (I know its a bit material but there is a geek in me that stresses when he loses or breaks them... I can be a forgetful clumsy sod so this can happen alot)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Hmmmm... What to say in this bit.. I think I will come back to it..
On a typical Friday night I am
Going out for a nice meal .. or drinking a glass of wine watching a film .. (15 years ago this would have been completely different .. but I am going to fly my 40 flag again :-))
You should message me if
You want to talk or meet or something otherwise I won't know.. (ok I know I am getting silly but its late and there are ALOT of sections :-))
The two of us
