Mum and Dad

My Mum is a retired Radiologist, my Father a retired teacher.

On 11 August 2009 my Father celebrated his 80th birthday. My siblings and I rented a North Yorkshire Moors carriage (Great Western Saloon)for a trip behind a steam engine from Grosmont to Pickering and back as a surprise for him. Most of his living relatives were there too. It was a great event. Here is a video of it:


Wifey. A nurse. She wants me to say things like 'long suffering'. That I am not going to do here.


Carol has lived in Germany working as an assistant in a school. She spent two years in the South of Spain working and entertaining in a Hotel. This was quite handy as we got a few very cheap holidays while she was there.

Then she returned to England and was a teacher in Whitby. Modern Foreign Languages Caedmon key stage 3 school (school website).

She's back in Spain now, teaching at an academy and entertaining at the Zoraida Garden in the summer months. Cheap holidays again!

John, Hannah and William watch as Peter makes an assault on a neighbour's house with John's new car. It is doing about 40mph (give or take) at this point. A day later I was to smash it for him against a kerb, this proved to be a very expensive time for me.


Peter trainined at HETA. He is now a highly qualified :-) engineer currently working at Ideal Boilers in Hull

This was his first motorbike. A CB125C

This Honda CM400 (that Peter bought from my erstwhile buddy Thack) caused us more grief than any other bike I have known. However, it had real character and was a great bike. The trouble was that it used to shake itself to pieces and when Peter sold it on eBay, the winner was a total arse and would not pay. Eventually someone who appreciated it bought it though.

This is Peter on his latest bike
