Hi, my name is Clive McGrory or MAC to my friends. I am 62 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. 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 managed exercise. This did take a knock recently so I have a challenge on my hands. Activity wise I generally do the housework and cook for Mary. Sadly I have had to give up gardening which I dearly loved. I am an elder of a local church and like to bake something each week 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 Heya brother,

    I am pleased to be back and tracking my weight and such. Easing back in as always. I ended up giving up on the handyman job as I could not keep a good helper. The hip dysplasia and bad knee makes it take a lot longer to do each job as well. My wife picks up a extra shift here and there ... to help with expenses. We plan on keeping both places as the wife will work for another 5 years or so in the city.. After that play it by ear with her possibly renting out rooms to women who travel to nurse or something we think as options on the city place. We still plan on having the cabin/castle country place and a place in Miami area ( couple acres with a big pole barn for a camper - 4 months a year). Thanks for everything. Have a Merry Christmas emoticon
