About

I am trained in taxes and theatre wardrobe. I designed and made clothes under my own label and now make and maintain gardens professionally. Over thirty years, I have renovated five houses completely. The grounds ranged from a few square feet of Devonshire mud to half an acre of Shropshire clay, all of which required replanting. There will not be a sixth such project. My current home has a huge Edwardian conservatory, previously derelict, with which I am obsessed. The only way they will get me out of here is feet first and even then, I intend to put up a fight.

I am a tailor, gardener, cook and decorator. My algebra is abysmal and my sense of direction is so bad it’s Biblical but I can alliterate with alacrity. I am a dilettante, a bodger and a peripatetic paddler in other people’s professions. I consider myself a jack of all trades and master of some.

    I enjoyed your contribution to the open mic session this evening. I’m looking forward to reading your blog. See you at the next open mic.

    Have a great Christmas!

    Malcolm.

    • Many thanks Malcolm, the Fringe has taught me more about poetry and writing than any number of over-stressed teachers. Wishing you a wonderful Xmas and a sunny 2016.
