I was born just outside London, but for the past 41 years I've lived in S W France. I am a painter by profession, and writer by desire. Lady Magnon and I live in an ancient cottage, in a tiny village, in perfectly tranquil countryside. We have a large vegetable garden called 'Haddock's' (this may crop up from time to time), a Labrador dog called Monty, a Border Collie cross called Bok, a cat called Freddie, two hens, plenty of fruit trees, and a view that takes the breath away. I try to treat our planet with respect, and encourage others to do likewise (without preaching).
Contentment is a glass of red, a plate of charcuterie, and a slice of good country bread. Perfect!
