Too fine gents Mr P and Lewis have tagged me in a meme, it’s been a pretty long time since I’ve been tagged in one of these so I’m actually going to get involved. Revolutionary I know. But it’s a simple, straightforward one for once so happy to oblige.

Here are some facts about me that I’m sure you never wanted to know.

Where do you do most of your writing/blogging?

At work so shhhhh, when I was commuting by train or bus I’d do my writing there (which actually seems to be the norm amongst dad bloggers). Now I’m driving I tend to go to the coffee shop in the office a couple of lunch times a week and get things written.

What books were your childhood favourites?

Earliest books I can remember being obsessed with were Spot ones, I even had a Spot duvet cover. Later on it would have been the Asterix and Tintin books, I read every single one of them, ticking them off on the back cover as I went.

Have you ever googled yourself and been surprised at what you found?

Yes but then I remembered that I had actually been a porn star as a teenager.

What is your favourite time of day and why?

Easy, dawn, just love it. The silent, stillness is magical. Love the feeling of being the only one up and outside. Even better if it involves an early morning run or fishing trip.

Who would play you in a movie of your life?

 Either Daniel Craig from when he was in Layer Cake or Sean Bean, you know blonde and rugged just like me.

One material possession I could not live without?

My running shoes, think I’d go insane without them. A laptop would be a close second though, would miss using the internet. A phone I could take or leave though, don’t think it would bother me that much.

Have you ever been naked in public?

Yup, on a number of occasions. One of the side effects of playing rugby. You know play a game, drink a few beers, sing a song, get naked. Pretty standard Saturday or Sunday.

What/who/where was your first proper kiss?

That would be with a girl called Claire age 13 in a park in the town where I grew up. Proper tongues and everything.

I’m sure your lives are now much more complete after reading that. I tag the following:
