A little bit about me then: I live in Tonbridge, UK. After a career in IT I’ve ‘retired’ to focus on other things. How has this been possible? Simple, really: fairly consistent work up to that point and not having expensive tastes or a lavish lifestyle!
Pottery had been a serious hobby for over 20 years and I intended to focus on that in retirement. Alongside that I enjoy making a home with my wonderful partner, cooking tasty food from simple wholesome ingredients, baking my own bread and keeping mind and body in good shape.
On a post-retirement trip to Australia we had a stop-over in Bangkok and a Thai friend of a friend who lives there acted as a guide. He took me for my first full Thai massage. I was so blown away by the experience that I had to learn more and returned to Thailand the following year to take an introductory course. Since then I’ve become a fully qualified practitioner.
So now life is a juggling game between pottery, Thai massage and keeping body and soul together. It’s pretty good.
