Welcome to my Home Page

For those who are really interested in "me" (fools!), I'm Tony Collins, aged 66, married to Pat (for 43 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 37, and Kenney 34). 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 is qualified (to iTec standard) as an Alternative Therapist and Beauty Technician. In 2018 she qualified as a teacher for Scottish Country Dancing, and is currently studying for an Open University degree. Around Christmas 2020, she and her husband moved to Italy to be with his mother and disabled brother.

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 two young daughters, and works as general manager of a restaurant group in Dalgety Bay.

Our Hobbies

Me ..... Our narrowboat, our genealogy project, computing
Pat ..... Scottish Country Dancing, needlecraft, cookery
Fhi ..... loves Scottish Country Dancing (to the point of qualifying as a teacher), and does crochet. They have seven guinea pigs
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 the pet cat. He gets a round of golf in when he can, and has returned to ice-hockey goalie coaching
