Your First Visit?

Thanks for stopping by my blog today. I hope that you enjoy your stay and find some interesting posts to read. I’m relatively new to blogging, so any feedback that will help me is appreciated. Really.

Regardless of how you got here, I’m glad you found my blog. I mainly write about life, with an emphasis on emotional and mental health issues. In one way or another, emotional and mental health matters have dogged my life. It is only recently that I have felt that I can talk about them. I suspect that these issues are important to my readers and followers.

May I suggest that you take a look at my most recent posts? They will give you an insight into the themes of the blog.

I am now retired, after 43 years of work. I started in retail management, and after a few years moved to the British Post Office, again in management. In 1986, new horizons beckoned, and I trained for the Baptist ministry at Spurgeon’s College, London, supported by a local Baptist church.

At Spurgeon’s College, I gained two diplomas, one from the College and the second from Cambridge University. Later, I earned a Master’s in Leadership from Bangor University though I studied for it at Mattersey Hall, a Pentecostal training facility.

I’m married to Maggie, and we have three married daughters and six grandchildren. One of our daughters lives in Sydney, Australia and has one child. Our remaining two daughters live in Peterborough, UK.

My chief interests include writing, researching, studying my family history, gardening and walking. I am an avid supporter of Nottingham Forest Football Club, the City of my birth. My ancestors have lived in and around Nottingham for over 500 years, most of them were born in the English Trent-side villages between Nottingham and Newark.
