My self-summary
Hello, pleased to make your virtual acquaintance! Not very good at bigging myself up so will spare you the hard sell.

I'm not an artist, poet or pioneer and I can't claim to spend my time saving lives and making the world a better place. But I do try and live in the moment, keep an open mind, remember time is short and that I am lucky.
What I’m doing with my life
I’m really good at
Weighing up the odds, mix tapes, sniffing out bargains, bad puns, pac-man, making tea, making lists and scrabble to name but a few.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
