Family is the most important thing in the world, after that science, football, food, furniture all come about equal for me. Three girls Melanie, Izzy & Jess & Karen are my close family, originally from London we now live (mostly) in Devon. We have settled in and love being closer to the sea and countryside. It was a shock for Izzy moving from a multicultural inner London school to one in Devon, but she is slowly converting them. I work at the university, doing scientific research. You can find out more if you are interested by googling Ken Haynes Exeter. Since I was a kid I wanted to be a biologist. I remember being 8 and asking the teacher why is one side of a leaf different to another? I still don't know the answer, completely. It suits me, I love ideas and being creative, working with some of the smartest young people on the planet, and having the freedom to choose my own path. It's also facilitated me travelling to some of the most wonderful places on Earth. Whenever I go back to London I visit Craven Cottage, the oldest and most beautiful of all London football grounds, walking down Finlay Street lifts my heart every time I do it, even though we often get beat. My Dad taught me how to cook when very young, simple British & Irish staples, London added the spice. Empire Chicken, combining classic British Roast Chicken with Indian Curry is absolutely the best thing I have ever eaten, and the one thing I can forgive Jamie Oliver for. Quality furniture was the domain of the rich, then mass production started and bold original design was open to everyone, certainly in the developed world. I love G-Plan, and have a house full of it, alongside mass produced English homeware from the 50's-70's. Good design should be available to all, and not rest as the preserve of the elite. Oh my lord, and I thought I had my left leanings under control - you can take the boy out of the council estate, but taking the council estate out of the boy, well that's another story!
