I was a student at TDS from Oct 1970 - June 1977.
wife Eleanor was a Community Service Volunteer (CSV) there between January and
July of 1977. We married in
Manchester in '79 during my second year at
The University where I gained a B.A. in Italian Studies in '81. Eleanor joined the old D.H.S.S. in '78 and is still with them in their latest guise.
have two children, Francesca (born in Manchester '83) and Jamie (born in
Keighley '93). I have never
had a full-time job since graduating but have nearly always had some sort of
work. Most of the time I have
worked in adult education teaching Italian, French and occasionally English.
have also been a telephone sales rep selling motorcycle accessories and now do
similar work selling stairlifts. Every
so often I still do some private tuition/translation work.
