Born and spent my childhood on the island of Jersey, to a Jerri father and a Northern Irish hill farming folk mother. Moved to England, spent most of my time here in the west country around Bath, or in London. Had jobs that took me to most parts of the world... And a meme gacked from nearly everyone on my friends list...

So what do I call things? Apart from baaaah....Collapse )
