Get to Know Me

Are you named after anyone?

 

Nope, simple one.

 

When was the last time you cried?

 

When my dog died earlier this year, didn't really share it online (barring a couple of friends and thanks to them for making me feel better) because I am a private person and I sort of blamed myself for the accident.

 

Do you have kids?

 

One girl, well she’s 19 now and we went through the whole bullying thing at school, shit times when you can’t really do anything to help but thankfully my daughter came out of it a better person with a strong take no crap personality. Makes me kinda proud.

 

If you were another person, would you be a friend of yourself?

 

Well maybe, yeah, I think I'm a laugh, I can be a bit of a twat at times, I work with a big group of guys and there's a lot of piss taking going on. I'm a bit of a wind-up merchant and my first reaction to most situations is to make light of it with a joke. If anyone's ever been offended by any comment I've made then my advice, step back and look at it in a light hearted manner. If you’re still annoyed them I admit I’m not everyone’s cup of tea.

 

Do you use sarcasm a lot?
