There isn't much to say, LOL.  
I'm 45, single (again) and live in Plymouth, England.
I've had all sorts of jobs, from admin to boat-building to gardening, but, at the moment, I work for the local theatre - cleaning windows and sweeping up. At least the people are all nice and we get plenty of free or cheap tickets : ) 
My favourite poets are Shakespeare, Wordsworth and Robert Frost. I especially love Shakespeare's Sonnet 29.
I love writing and don't think I could live without it.

I'm the bald guy at the very back of the photo, by the way - 'Jack Horner' in the corner, LOL

 


Sorry and thanks

Hi everyone,
I just wanted to say a big thank you to Sara for the sweet blog and to all of you for your kind thoughts and prayers for my dad. He's still in hospital at the moment. He has incurable cancer - bowel, liver and lymph nodes, so not too good.
Thanks also to everyone for comments/congrats and to anyone in whose contest I've placed - I tried to return as many comments as possible today, but I have to catch the bus to visit my dad now - very sorry if I haven't got around to you today, but I will return comments etc ASAP.
Love to you all,Jack

    Please don't worry about not being around at the Soup, Jack-- you and your family are going through so much right now...my prayers continue for your dad, I'm so sorry about his condition-- I think that it really does help (even emotionally) for a person with cancer to have such a strong support system and love from all the people around him. You take care, ok?
