The problem with Live Journal is that we all think we are so close, but really, we know nothing about each other. Hence, I want you to ask me something you think you should know about me. Something that should be obvious, but you have no idea about. Then post this in your LJ and find out what people don’t know about you.

How long has your family lived in England? In the North?

all my life!

I was born in Newcastle Upon Tyne in the north-east, then moved down to Leeds in 1989 to do my first university degree. Kind of stayed...

How did you meet your wife?

It was at a party that neither of us wanted to go to, at a trainee solicitor friend's house. K went along as a friend of a friend, our eyes met across a crowded room and the rest is history. And geography. Quite a lot of geography in fact, six weeks after meeting me she quit her job in Leeds and moved to Newbury.

Never one to be put off, I just got used to lots of train travel.


She then moved back up north to Rotherham, then finally we settled in Wakefield.

What schools and university(ies) did you go to?

inner city comprehensive in Newcastle, which set me up for life - there's not much scares me!

Leeds University for my first degree, then Leeds Metropolitan University for my postgrad stuff.

Also Wakefield College and the Open University for short courses. Which reminds me, I really need to look for a new course to do!
