For those who are really interested in "me" (fools!), I'm Tony Collins, aged 63, 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, and undergoing training as a teacher for Scottish Country Dancing.
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 works as general manager of a restaurant in Dalgety Bay.

|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 the pet cats. He gets a round of golf in when he can, and has returned to ice-hockey goalie coaching|
