I get carried away...often. Banish images of a damsel in the arms of a white knight. I’m talking about excitement, enthusiasm, joie de vivre! It can take a while. Many a party have I attended and spent mindless hours listening to talk of surveying contracts, annual report and accounts, print runs and the like (such is my diverse past employment). However, now and again something crops up and ‘BANG!’ My ears prick up, like a young filly breathless for the gun at the racecourse, and I’m off. Impressionism, foreign languages, feline welfare, Anglo-Saxons, short crust pastry, aromatherapy and other varied topics of which I am a Jack of.
