I love our girls. Heidi aged eleven, Eva aged ten. Beautiful, bouncy, healthy girls who are our world. They test us to the max every day, make us immensely proud every day, and everything in between, every day! I love my wife Emma. My best friend and my rock. We've been through thick and thin together. She has taught me so much about life and has made me a better person. She's beautiful, intelligent and a lot of fun, and I'm lucky to call her my wife. I love coffee. I love coffee to the point that I experiment with water temperature, grind size, tamp pressures , cup size, milk, roast date, the works. Emma thinks I'm a geek, and that none of this matters to the final taste but it gives me enormous pleasure all the same. A coffee along with a pint of water every morning and I'm good to go.
I love bikes. Mountain or gravel. The feeling of wind through my hair and an uncluttered mind with just the trail ahead. I also like to talk about bikes, read about bikes and watch other people ride bikes. Cycling keeps me fit, keeps me healthy, keeps me sane. I love adventure. In 2018 we bought Pippa, our VW Campervan. We love her dearly and wish we'd bought her sooner. She has added so much to our general well being and health and myself, my wife and our children love spending time with her. As they say in the movie "UP", adventure is out there.
I love Moonshine by the fire, reading a book in a hammock, wearing my gansey to death, growing chillies in the greenhouse, making sauces from scratch, evening walks with Emma and Ivy, daddy/daughter adventures, family movie nights with popcorn, printing photos from my phone gallery.
