I am 62 year old Professional, who has two wonderfull children and recently two equally wonderfull grandchildren.
I am an engineer by qualification and am currently working as a senior manager for a water utility.
I love all sorts of sport and have recently taken up golf which seems to be a common sport for people of my age to take up. I play it badly but really enjoy the friendship, fresh air and scenary that comes with it.
I also ski, play badmington, table tennis and walk, and hope to do much more going forward.
I love to travel and have been to many places with my job and for leisure. Favourite places are Italy, especially Rome and San Francisco.
I love to cook, but unfortunately not a natuarl, I tend to follow recipes, but I will try anything.
Five things I cannot live without:
1. My family, children and granchildren are most important things in my life.
2. I have to have a purpose in life, something to do a reason for getting up each day that excites and interests me.
3. I love good company, good food, wine and conversation.
4. I love a good book
5. holidays to interesting places.
Favourite music, thats a difficult one but tend to like late 60s and 70's rock bands. Favourite bands Deep Purple, Pink Floyd, Led Zepplin, Mott The Hoople, Queen and Barclay James Harvest and Cold Play.
If I were your guest, I would be very respectful of your home. I have worked hard all my life to build a comfortable home and value what I have. A recent divorce has meant I have lost a beautiful house that I shared with my wife and moved to something very modest. But its home and I surround myself with things that I value and care for.
When you invite someone into you home, you have to understand the boundaries, enjoy their hospitality but not take liberties.
If I were hosting, I would ensure my guests felt at ease, I would probably not be in residence and would allow them the run of my home. On arrival I would welcome them and run through the essentials of the home to ensure their stay was comfortable and met their requirements.
The kitchen and all the facilities would be available for their use.
With regards to me, I believe I am a kind caring person who is considerate of others. I love the company of others, I am sociable with a good sense of humour. I work hard but also have found in recent years I need to make time outside of work to pursue other interests which I have sacrificed bringing up a family.
Not looking forward to retiring though, will probably work as long as I am able, I love the interaction at work and keeping my mind active.
