In His Own Words

About him

I was born and grew up in Scotland, but came to Norwich in 1974 as a professional musician, and have been here ever since. I have two married daughters, one in Norwich, the other in Dublin, and in 2012 each presented me with a beautiful grand-daughter, followed in 2014 by another gorgeous little girl in Norwich and a wonderful grandson in Ireland, and I just dote on them: I had no idea just how much pleasure being a grandparent would be!

I spent several years as a full time carer for my wife who died in 2010, and since then I've lived alone, mostly content, but I can't deny increasingly lonely. I still work full time as a systems manager for a mail order company, but plan this year to cut back to 3 days a week.

I don't watch much television, but when the occasion arises I do miss having someone sitting next to me to whom I can comment when necessary "what a load of rubbish" and receive a sympathetic response! I find myself increasingly uncomfortable living in a world full of noise, violence, selfishness and litter, and yearn for a return to the lost days of my childhood, when decency and manners were important, and everything was more gentle, more polite, calmer, and just simpler. I suppose I'm turning into a socialist equivalent of Victor Meldrew.

I'm an avid reader, and listen to Radio 4, jazz, and classical music. I love the coast; cities and the countryside, and enjoy the Theatre, museums and art galleries. I have a lifelong interest in design and architecture, but none in football, or any sport other than Formula 1, although I'm learning to enjoy watching top class tennis.

All this makes me sound really boring: perhaps I am! I refuse to use the term 'GSOH" as the whole world claims to possess one, but I'm reputed to have a quick wit, and make others laugh. I certainly laugh a lot and am very comfortable in company.

To avoid any false starts, I cannot bear tattoos or body piercings.

I am 100% honest and loyal, and hope for the same in others
