  • Description


    We are married with 3 children (age 7, 10 and 12). We home educate the youngest 2, the eldest goes to a special needs school. I am Welsh, my wife is 1/2 Irish 1/2/Portuguese (speaks French & Spanish) . I fish most summer days, and we eat fish and fresh veg from the garden most days. We press apples for apple juice and cider in the autumn, we cycle and walk lots, we like real coffee, bake our own bread, film, bbq's.
    We live in an idyllic, 100yr old timber beach house with 120 degree see view. I work as a pottery tutor one day a week in term time and am inventing/making or building/restoring the house gardening/fishing or being a dad the rest of the week.
