It strikes me, that when I Blog I do so about a large selection of geek subjects, but not a great deal about myself! So here, this time I will devote this whole Blog entry to me…
Now a happily hitched man, I can firmly say that married life is amazing! Since getting wed over 3 months ago, Claire and I have become even more in love, of course things have changed in both our lives as we adjust to living with each other, but changed for the better! It is quite extraordinary how we both adore to meet each others needs, this, I guess is the whole reason why marriage is such a good thing, because you are constantly thinking of the other person you naturally become closer. As time goes by we learn more and more about each other and our little habits, as Claire has already shared about in a previous Blog entry, many of our ‘features’ soon become cute, and I would imagine we would miss them if one of us stopped.
On the Job front, I am still working at NTL:Telewest and am very happy to be in such a great team. Although at times I do get a little square eyed from looking at the hundreds of tiny little boxes of Microsoft Excel, and sometimes things are a bit laborious, but the I think to myself “This is a company which I have always wanted to work for, and a job which gives me really great experience, and a position that uses my skills and interests”, I like my job!.
My family, I love them all lots! It is strange, having left home nearly 7 years ago, I increasingly feel that my relationship with my parents is growing and I am really proud of both of them. I no longer see my Dad a big ogre but now just take the Micky out of him, he weekly goes out on the hills with the Beachy Head Chaplaincy Team, a group of people dedicated to reach out to those who are depressed and suicidal and bring them a bit of hope and love. I really love my Mum for her guidance, I credit a great deal of my domestic training to her, she is currently studying hard to improve her IT skills in order to further her career as a teacher and she is doing really well. As for my legendary brother, he is now living up in Scotland, he is working for YFC (Youth For Christ) and is doing amazing work with the sometimes rough and tumble youth of Inverness, he goes into schools and churches spreading the word of Jesus, along with some more hope and love.
My friends, well that is another story but in a nutshell I am a happy chappy, I have a beautiful wife, go to a great church, have a good job, great parents and amazing friends. Thank you guys!
