Welcome to our home page

My hobbies include music, hi-fi, home cinema and reading horror stories by authors such as Stephen King, James Herbert and Dean Koontz. I own copies of nearly all Stephen King's stories. I keep meaning to get back into electronics, an interest from my teenage years, but have not found the time yet. I have recently restrung my 40 year old bass guitar and found I am not as rusty playing it as I thought I would be after 35 years!

I have three sons. David has given us three grandchildren, Calum in May 2001, Nicole in October 2002 and Megan in November 2008. Matthew is at Preston university and Daniel is at Watford college.

Unfortunately, I have to work so I pass that time as an IT consultant working through our company MAS Unicorn Limited.



I love music from the 60s, 70s and 80s and movies from every era. My other hobbies are gardening, pottery and reading anything and everything.

My daughter Gemma works with people who have learning difficulties. Debbie gave us our first grandchild, Courtney in July 1999, and in April 2005 gave us twin grandchildren, a boy, Tico and a girl, Kaiah. Granddaughter Yasmin, our 7th grandchild, was born in December 2006. Beckie is a Primary School Teacher and in June 2005 gave us granddaughter Kacy then grandson Alex in January 2008.

I am a qualified Psychosynthesis Therapeutic Counsellor and Psychotherapist. In Spain I am working in Customer Services.


Since 29th November, 2004, we have lived in Spain. We are both enjoying our new lifestyle in a somewhat warmer climate.

On 4th August 2007 we moved into our new home in Hoya Los Patos, Busot. It was a very tiring weekend. Huge thanks to the fantastic efforts of Matt and Dan who just happened to be over to visit 'Dad'. Without their help we would not have shifted everything in two days. You can see photographs of the house under 'Our Home In Busot' at the side of this page. As we settle in we'll add new photo sections (well, that's the plan anyway).

The site is always going to be a work in progress so there are likely to be many changes, additions and deletions as time goes by.
