In His Own Words

About him

Donnish Practical Prince who cooks, brews, bakes, writes, decorates, chops logs, leaps buildings with a single bound (though nowadays this requires a long run up and ropes). I am the proprietor of an online bookshop.

I am not photogenic. A kind friend said that in my 3rd picture my "face had character stamped all over it". I say stamped all over by a character in wellies! Much better in person.
Dennis Skinner MP once said: "If work's so bloody good why don't the rich keep more back for themselves?" With this sage advice in mind I have run my book stock down from 50,000 to the best 11,000 and begun receiving my teacher's pension very early.

Lived Mid Wales, Colchester and Cambridge.
I was a Teacher of Visually Impaired Children for several years (previously Secondary English, but then I got better); now a second-hand book dealer, when I feel like it. I have 2 surviving children (one 8 years old, the other living in Norwich), and live in an 18th century cottage in Fulbourn, a village 3 miles outside of Cambridge. Politically left wing I love cooking (esp. Indian, Thai & Greek), reading and music, from Bach to Blues. My house is stuffed with a book collection. I love cats (3 in the house) and am a lifelong Spurs supporter (another example of hope over experience). Ex-County and Tournament-winning chess player.
Likes brainstorm: Greece & all things Greek (especially Naxos & the Peloponnese), Branston pickle, Suffolk & East Sussex, Keats, Kettle's Yard, cats, Marmite, Schubert, strong cheese, Preraphaelites, Champagne, The Grauniad, driving, fruit, Rioja, the night sky, good beer, Tom Lehrer, Flann O'Brien, Patrick Leigh Fermor (avid collector), tomato juice & Worcester, the Dylans, coriander, thunderstorms, Bach (an avatar if not actually god), wine gums, Arvo Part, Mahler, vegetable gardening, bleak coasts in the Winter. Good luck in your search too x

About his ideal match

She will be into a wide range of music, but must include classical. Well read, appreciates good food. Intelligent so not a Brexiter. Still interested in the carnal side of love. Quirky sense of humour. Wilde wrote that "We know the price of everything but the value of nothing". Well I want for nothing and am quite materially content...but lack she who is of no cost but of ultimate value.
