In His Own Words

About him

The most important fact about myself is that I am an alcoholic. I stopped drinking nine months ago.This is obviously vital information for anyone thinking of becoming acquainted with me, let alone forming a close relationship of any kind. I am happy and oh so proud to be able to say this, but I doubt if anyone but another alcoholic can truly understand this. It was with the support of great friends( some of whom are still drinking as I was), great medics and the unfailing support of my five wonderful daughters and their partners that I achieved this.
I am a retired teacher/carer working part-time. I feel it is time I moved from my present rather isolated home to warmer climes and interesting,stimulating fun on a meagre budget. I intend to qualify as a T. E.F.L. teacher and take life as it comes. I have five grown up and independent daughters and four grandchildren who are very special. I enjoy the outdoors, cycling, canoeing riding etc. and meaningful travel. I feel uncomfortable without an interesting book to read and listen to Radio 4 a lot. Long live "The News Quiz.", and Humph come back! So, there we go, a sort of lefty hippie hangover with a small income and very open mind with regard to the future.Intend to take a T. E.F.L. course to boost my teachers' pension, find a decent camper van and set of to where .
I was a teacher of infants/secondary and extreme adult special needs in very small and quite large schools. I am now caring part-time for an ex pupil.
I find it difficult to find any political party to support at present. Have great sympathy for the Greens. I believe we have unfair standards as to who should be pursued as war criminals.Tony Benn should have been made lifetime dictator many years ago with Eddie Izzard as his junior and lifetime successor assisted by the teams from "The News Quiz".
Hey Ho there we go. Any form of comments welcome.
P.S. Happy Uncommercialy Blighted Christmas to all.

About his ideal match

I am looking for a companion/partner to take life as it comes, is not materialistic and can live happily in a simple way in a reasonble climate. The person would need to have a senseof humour and of the ridiculous. They would be interested in travel and working abroad. It would be a bonus if they enjoyed meeting new people, took an interest in world affairs, the arts and particularly a range of live music. It would be wonderful if they appreciated what cities, rural isolation, differing societies and travelling within cultures rather than above them. If they have first hand knowledge to aid and guide myself in this lifestyle it would be greatly appreciated. They of course would , in my case, take into the account that I am an alcoholic and it has to be accepted that support with this aspect of my character my be necessary. I sincerely hope not.
So, given all these qualities needed from an "ideal match", I am I am bracing myself for the inevitable tsunami of feminine pulchritude to wash overwhelmingly over my helpless self !
