Hi, I'm Chris – from the UK, but now living with my OH in a quirky old cottage in France: some people might think of us as quirky and old as well.... We love gardening, and I like collecting plants: I have many different kinds of maple and a few dwarf oak trees, together with about 130 different types of daffodils. Indoors we both enjoy antique china, especially jugs: my favourites are Royal Worcester, and pink lustre-ware. We also have an alarming number of old clocks around the place!

I've had a stoma since 2003, when colon cancer led to emergency surgery then six months of chemo ('fortunately we don't think hair loss will a problem in your case' said the oncologist!). I also have ulcerative colitis, but treatment is keeping this under control at the moment. The healthcare here is incredible!

I'm kept going by my maverick sense of humour, a 'junk shop mind' full of useless information, and my Christian faith. I guess some might label me an 'English eccentric', but I could disagree with one of those words at least: ask me which!

I'm a paid member, so can start chats on this site – apart from being around in the chatroom sometimes, I tend to say 'hi' to people who look in on my profile, so don't be surprised if you hear from me now you have read this far! Thanks for visiting today.
