I am a 50+ Yorkshireman living in Leeds, England. I still do a proper job five days a week and am looking forward to retirement in the next three or four years. I am married to Jayne and have two grown up children and two granddaughters.
My interests include reading, listening to music (especially Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band), going to see live music and doing family history research. I am also an armchair sports fan and support my local football (soccer) team – Leeds United (the best team never to have won the European Cup).
As well as You Don’t Choose Your Family I have three other blogs which I write intermittently:-
Utter Drivel – a blog about everyday nonsense
Political Drivel – a blog I started after the UK general election in May 2010
Pride and Passion – a blog about Leeds United
