Some honest answers …

So, my first ever ‘tagging’, which I thought was a rude thing like ‘Dogging’, but as it came from my lovely Cousin EM, I guess it def isn’t ..

So, wanna know a bit more about me, and if I come into the ‘Want to have a beer with me’ or the ‘knob’ category .. read away !

Which living person do you most admire, and why?

I hold many people in admiration, lots of sportsmen mostly, as I have played most sports to varying success, to be that good to be a professional.. well, that’s just amazing. I admire those who get off their arse to do something, to change things when they are unhappy rather than to just except and moan, but the one person I admire more than anyone is quite simply my Ma. She had 4 of us kids within 5 and half years, she bought up 4 respectable, honest, polite children. She lost Dad when she was 50 after 30 yrs of marriage, and yes, she does still have terribly low moments, she got up, and did the things she wanted, which was to travel, and I have lost count of the places she has been to. She still works a 37 Hr week on her feet, looks after a beautiful garden, and is now a wonderful Grandma !

When were you happiest

I was a very contented person after I had finally shed the divorce feeling, and found happiness being by myself, that was a very important phase and point of my life to get to, but, I have to say right now, I nearly have all I want, once I have my family home, I will have all I ever dreamt of having

What is your most treasured possession?

I would have to say Matej, but that’s cheating, as a possession, I am not a possession person, but I think it is a pocket watch Ma gave me of Dads, and a gold coin I have that he was given to him by Haile Selassie, the Emperor of Ethiopia on his African travels.

Where would you like to live?

Right where I am now, actually, scrub that, 2 miles from where I live now, in my house. I have lived in 4 countries now, and everyone was my home, I am happy wherever I live, as long as I have my family with me. I am no City boy, I am a country lad, happy in a small village and places with character.

To whom would you most like to say sorry, and why?

No-one. I don’t believe in leaving things unsaid. I am very quick to say sorry and admit when I am wrong, I could die tomorrow, and there is not one person I would wish I had said sorry to..

What or who is the greatest love of your life?

Close would be Glenn Hoddle, Sir Ian Botham, Sachin Tendulkar, Kylie , Jenny Anniston and Cyndy Crawford….. but…. My Wife, no doubts about it, my soul mate, my friend, my lover and the single person that drives me on.

What is the worst job you’ve done?

For 4 weeks I was de-nailing wood in an old wool store in the Port of Adelaide. They we destroying an old wool warehouse, and the wood was old and reusable for furniture, but the old floorboard needed the nail removing. It was filthy, lonely work, and after 4 weeks, my left handed developed a claw like appearance, and I spent weeks getting lanolin out of every nook and crannie !.

If you could edit your past, what would you change?

My school life, I would have wanted my parents to push me harder..

What single thing would improve the quality of your life?

My House….. please please, I need my hose to be finished.

What is the most important lesson life has taught you?

Live life for now, take the risks and never to die wondering. Yes, you might get it wrong, and yes you might regret doing it, and yes, it might cost you money, but at least you will know that you tried…. I took the biggest risk of my life a few years back, gave up my country, a wonderful job in The City and left. No idea if it would work…… but it did, and I am so glad I took the risk… go for it. My Dad’s death at only 52 taught me that you best go and enjoy life now, because you never know what’s gonna happen.
