5 Questions about Kiff

Most frequent questions and answers

I was born in 1976 so when I last checked that made me 43.

Yes – I was born in Fraserburgh in Scotland, so I claim myself to be Scottish even though I only lived there for 2 months – To caveat that my mother and her side of the family are Scottish so it is not a totally wild claim.

  1. After 2 months on this earth, my parents whisked me away to the Far East to a place called Brunei, where my father had obtained a teaching post at a technical college. We lived out there for six years and both of my brothers were born out there. At the age of six, we move back to the UK where I grew up in Wrexham North Wales

I work for a Multi D Consultancy as a Principal Project Manager; don’t ask, I have no idea either. However, if you’re really interested read my CV.

I live near Stroud in the South West of England with my lovely wife Clare and or 2 daughters.

About the blog

he ideas for a blog came from the idea of writing a journal.

I have always love the idea of writing a Journal, crisp pages of a note book call to me wanting me to write. In part I guess it is the idea that someday people will look back and read your thoughts. The problem is unless you are famous or the Queen no one really wants to know so I never quite got started.

It is the same with a blog – the idea of journaling the everyday life of Kiff  through the medium of a blog seems like a great idea, however when you really get down to the nitty-gritty my life is really not that exciting. So I sometimes lack the impetus to keep posting but I keep trying.

Although this will be a blog about everything and nothing, there will be a strong scouting theme running through it. I have found a number of scouting friends on the internet and I think that posting about Scouting will give me the driver to keep posting.
