I’ve never written an about me page or blog before. My name is Simon and I’m 47. I think I might even be a bit old for blogging, but then I suppose that’s a ridiculous thing to think.

My reason for starting a blog is quite personal, and I’ll talk about that more later, but I’m interested in having an outlet for myself to talk about my personal feelings, but in an anonymous way rather than with people I know.

In my personal life I am single, divorced, with two teenage children who I see not as often as I would like. This is a real problem for me, but the alternative would be to not do the job I do and that would mean they were passed between two parents who don’t have money, at least this way they get better things in life even if it’s a personal cost to me.

So as you can see, life is a bit bittersweet for me, but I try to make the most of it and I try to be as healthy and upbeat as I can.
