Best holiday 5 years ago my wife and I celebrated our 25th anniversary and spent a week in Rome and 2 weeks in Sorrento - wonderful! Then last year we spent 2 weeks in Las Vegas and it was amazing! But for our 30th anniversary this year we're spending 7 nights in Hawaii then 3 nights in Vegas before flying for 5 nights in Cancun and finishing off with 3 nights in New York at the 30 Thirty Hotel - how fitting is that for our 30th!!

Biggest achievement Having trained as a textile technologist for 17 years I switched careers to go into Marketing and have been there for the last 16 years for the Halifax (see below). Coaching young athletes and seeing the look on their faces when they run well, get a new PB or just have one of those break throughs when they suddenly click with what you've been trying to explain and it works for them!
Me 5' 10" Right handed, brown eyes - Hair was black now mainly grey! A typical gemini - split personality!
Job Campaign Manager for the Halifax protecting the brand and managing the colleagues who appear in the TV ads!
Family Wife - Ann, Daughter Deborah, Sisters - Pat, Stephanie & Tracy, Brother - Mike Parents - Theresa & Peter
