My proudest accomplishment is –
The birth of my sons has always been one of my proudest moments despite the fact it was my wife Jane who did all the hard work. The feeling of pride did start to wear thin once they learnt to answer back.
What skill would you like to master?
I would love to qualify as a pilot. I went for a microlight flight over Lake Annecy in France a few years ago and the feeling of complete freedom was overwhelming.
Where is the most interesting place you’ve been?
I should recite exotic foreign locations but frankly, London is probably the most fascinating place to visit with its amazing architecture and deep and sometimes dark history. Could do with fewer people in it though. I don’t like crowds.
What would be some of the most annoying things about having yourself as a roommate?
My silence and my insistence on re-watching “Where Eagles Dare”.
What are three interesting facts about you?
I used to be a keen archer having previously shot for my county and participated in tournaments as far north as Skye and as south as Malta.
Whilst at university I won the Professor John Finan Memorial Award for most outstanding result in American Legal System. Immeasurably useful for practice in Shropshire.
My wife and I are currently renovating an old farmhouse in the Auvergne region of France. When most people are on holiday, they are seen wearing swimsuit and flip flops whilst carrying a cool drink. I will be seen wearing dusty work clothes, safety shoes and carrying a disc grinder.
