Personal profile

I am now in midlife but not a crisis, I think I can beat it by running in the London marathon! I have five children whom I taxi to various functions, sports activities etc. The children are now at an age which allow me to return to either watching or playing tennis and golf. I continue to enjoy my food and drink and further enjoy my work.
