Welcome to my Home Page

For those who are really interested in "me" (fools!), I'm Tony Collins, aged 62, married to Pat (for 40 years!). After 12 years deep-sea in the Merchant Navy, then 26 years working for the Scottish Government with their fisheries patrol fleet, I took early retirement in 2011. We have two children (Fhi 34, and Kenney 31). Our house is in Kirkcaldy in Fife, Scotland (home of linoleum, Raith Rovers Football Club, and Fife Flyers Ice Hockey Team), but are also the proud owners of a traditional canal narrowboat, "Paws 4 Thought" .

Fhi completed her second college course with an iTec qualification as a Beauty Technician, having already completed the iTec qualification as an Alternative Therapist. She is married and lives in Edinburgh. She works in Edinburgh in the retail/tourist trade. She is currently studying for an Open University degree.

Kenney graduated in 2008 from Napier University with a BSc(Hons) in Sports & Exercise Science (Sports Injuries). He is also qualified as a Personal Trainer. He lives in Kirkcaldy with his partner and their baby daughter, and "makes ends meet" by working in the restaurant trade in Dalgety Bay.

Our Hobbies

Me ..... Our narrowboat, our genealogy project, computing (incl running a weather station at the house)
Pat ..... Scottish Country Dancing, needlecraft, cookery
Fhi ..... says she doesn't have time for hobbies! (but does Scottish Country Dancing to the point of passing parts 1 to 3 of her teaching qualification). They have four guinea pigs and two rats
Kenney ..... genuinely doesn't have much time at the moment due to his job, but spends as much spare time as possible with his partner, their daughter and pet cats, and plays golf when he can
