I am in my late fifties, happily married with two grown up daughters and live in the South of England. I am passionate about technology, watching sport, running, photography and volunteering.
I would have described myself as reasonably fit and healthy for pretty much the whole of my life so far. However, that was until August 2015 when I suffered a minor stroke. Subsequently, in October 2016 I was diagnosed with achalasia, a rare disease that attacks the nerves of the oesophagus and affects your ability to swallow food. I was fortunate to have had an operation in February 2017 that has given me back around 85% of the swallowing function that a normal person should have.
After almost two years of battling health issues, I am now returning to a more normal life and able to focus on my passion for technology and the areas of life that can be enriched by it. I target my posts mainly at the older generation who did not grow up surrounded by digital technology but who would now like to embrace it.
