I am very much in love with my wife Bronwen married at twenty years old, forty three years ago and would do it all again.
I consider myself a very private person but love nearly everyone including some people who have treated me badly over the years mostly family strangely enough
I retired a while back and mostly my retired life revolves around my two workshops metal and wood.
I adore and love my three sons and my daughter in law and two grandchildren Reuben and Rhiannon beautiful.
I was working in orthodontics including a five year stint in Germany where I worked in a private clinic.
When I was a young man I was very heavily involved with the church and found that christianity/chuch was great but it had one massive flaw it was run by human beings.I no loger am involved with religeon it took me untill recently to get over the guilt I never took my boys once to church and they thank me for it today.
I am only ever involved with two sites on the computer this one and an engineering forum .I have been there for many years.
I now try to enjoy myself as much as possible and Bronwen and I are still very much in love I have never been apart from her except when I go into hospital.Neihter have I been unfaithful she is my only one LOl and I don’t care who knows.LOve you guys have fun Alistair
