Hi, my name is Clive McGrory or MAC to my friends. I am 59 years old and live in a small village near Falkirk, Scotland. In fact it is so small that it comprises one street, 50 houses and a small primary school. The beauty of the place is that at the back of my house is a village park which is protected as a site of natural beauty and also has a part that even the villagers cannot enter without permission as it contains some rare flowers.

Hi, my name is Clive McGrory or MAC to my friends. I am 59 years old and live in a small village near Falkirk, Scotland. In fact it is so small that it comprises one street, 50 houses and a small primary school. The beauty of the place is that at the back of my house is a village park which is protected as a site of natural beauty and also has a part that even the villagers cannot enter without permission as it contains some rare flowers. My main interests are cooking, reading and the internet although during the summer months cricket is a priority and I will be glued to the TV for a lot of the time. I live with my wife, Mary, and daughter, Patricia, and my mother, Beryl. My mother joined us up here 7 years ago as she found she could no longer take care of herself properly. Since she came she has got back to the Mum I knew as a child and she is once more enjoying herself, (she is 84 this year). I am disabled and so is my daughter. I have multiple disabilities which mean that I require a wheelchair to travel distance but I am fortunate in that I can still get about the house with the aid of a delta walker,and am increasing my mobility range slowly through managd exercise. I do require some assistance at night and my daughter has drawn the short straw as my wife also has a full time job. Activity wise I generally do the housework and cook for my mother and the garden is also my responsibility. I am able to garden with the aid of a modified shopping trolley which enables me to sit whilst using full size tools. I attend a local church and part of that is baking for the after service get together. There is also a lunch club which meets every Tuesday and I sometimes do the main cooking for that also, although we do have a lady who heats everything up or cooks herself and generally everyone pitches in to serve up and wash the dishes afterwards. I generally have a good quality of life and I like to keep a smile going whenever I can. I am an eternal optimist and know that even when things are not going well there is always hope around the corner and that a better and brighter future awaits us all.

emoticon for your uplifting words and yes I am using caution as the doctor said the small piece of bone broken off the corner would eventually absorb. The pain is lessoned and hopefully walking will be easier by cabin build time again, if not I will be supervisor like I was when we first started the cabin. emoticon
