Commenting on current affairs, welfare, politics, disability, IT, music, and life in general.
Hobbies and Interests: Listening to music, computer science, software, cooking, films, literature, writing, Twitter and spending time with my family.
I was lucky enough to be educated to degree level and to gain professional qualifications during my working life. Before my wife’s disability worsened, I worked around the UK in a number of industries, including computer science, software, engineering, banking and management consultancy.
Most significant thing about leaving world of work: It is amazing how you find out who your true friends really are – and discover the true nature of individuals.
I am now the full-time carer for my disabled wife and disabled child (and a husband, and a dad to two other children)
- Life is tiring; but nobody said it was easy.
- Be positive – in the boxing ring of life, it’s about what you do when you get knocked down.
- Those whose lives are comparatively easy should consider themselves lucky.
- To not help those who need help is to not help oneself – as one day you too might need help.
- Reactions are just automatic thoughts, often emotionally-driven – they are NOT considered opinions.
- There is no such thing as a “Self-made Man / Woman / Person”.
I have a disability myself, though it only affects me mildly.
