I grew up in Luton – you know – the one with the bad press. It’s not as bad as they make out, true, there has been a spate of trouble over the past few months but generally, underneath that cornucopia of bad press there is an underlying determination of good will and hard work that I believe will see Luton through.
This blog started off as a poetry blog (I love everything about poetry, words, when played with, can be both beautiful and frustrating but ultimately rewarding if arranged in a wondrous manner) but has taken on a life of its own recently. My good friend Paula suggested – after seeing some of my photographs – that I could make Lewsey Farm look good. Well that became a bit of a challenge for me so now I’m doing a weekly post to find the good things in and around Luton but more specifically I’ll be trying to focus on LU4 (Lewsey Farm) where the level of trouble has escalated since January this year (2013).
I was in the Royal Navy for 15 years, I left 12 years ago and have worked as a Systems Administrator, Project Manager and am currently self-employed working for a variety of clients mainly in a retail environment. I’m a Jack of all trades, part-time techie, part-time project manager and part-time tool monkey – on job descriptions I think they call it “must have an adaptable approach and can-do attitude”.
I’ve written a book of poetry and self-published it, Adrift in a Mind is available here if you want to have a look.
