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

 


Thanks

Hi everyone,
I'd just like to thank you all for your kindness and support - with extra thanks to Sara, Linda-Marie and Gail for the uplifting blogs.
My dad slipped away so peacefully - much, much sooner than we'd expected - but I know he was spared more suffering. We are all thankful for that.
I'd never appreciated Dylan Thomas' 'Do not go gentle into that good night' before, but I often thought of those words as I sat by Dad's bedside. 
Have a great Sunday : )
Love from Jack x
PS. I really must update my bio pic - I have a beard at the moment

    Hello Jack. I am so sorry your Tad has passed away. But I know it is comforting that he no longer feels the pain. =My Tad died in January, they say the first year is the hardest, but we get througn it with the help of friends. Chin up, he wouldnt want you sad... Seren
