I shall try to define myself in a sentence with a pithy comment at the end:
I'm just an English bloke who lives in Canada after marrying a Canadian lady he met while living in Japan. Yeah, that old cliché.
For Christmas my in-laws got me a gift card for my favourite shoe store. I went there today with the intention of buying either an extremely smart pair of wingtip Oxfords or a sensible waterproof boot.
