Peter - who he? what do? and why?

Who he?

32 y/o Canadian transplanted to the UK 10 years ago. In those 10 years, he's been a Care Worker, Manager, and Personal Banker. Now he works part time as a Care Worker and Administrator for his husband's puppet company. He's the eldest of 7 children. His favourite dwarf is bashful.

What do?

He works with his husband. In his spare time, he likes to follow current affairs, keep in touch with family and friends both in the UK and overseas, and generally crash out in front of a TV.


He's not quite sure why. It's just what he does and who he is.
Welcome to my blog!

Why start a blog now? Well, my husband and I are on the verge of making some pretty life changing decisions - and weighing up the pros and cons of leaving our life in London to try out living in rural shropshire - or even on a canal boat!

It's a big move for both of us! It means re-establishing my husband's puppet company in a new part of the UK - and leaving behind some good friends here in London.

We know it's time to go, though. London is a great city - but it's got its problems! It takes forever to get anywhere, it costs a fortune to live, and, as someone who has been the victim of crime 3 times in the past 4 years, it can be scary too!

So, I hope to use this blog to keep a record of this coming year - which will be a memorable one!

Aside from the move, I also hope to blog about things in the media that interest me, and my own feelings about what's going on around me. More about my particular interests, beliefs, and that sort of thing soon.

In the meantime, enjoy reading this - whoever might find this blog tucked away in my little corner of cyberspace - and enjoy the last few days of British summer!
