My mum loved the 1950s movie Somebody Up There Likes Me, the story of Rocky Graziano and his rise to a boxing world title.
I like the movie too and would have loved to title this book Somebody Up There Likes Me because I have been blessed. We had a lot of highs and lows as I grew up; domestic violence was frequent, but we also had a lot of love.
As a young man, I didn’t know that my family lived from one wage to the next or why my dad was not always around, but we had a rich and generally happy childhood.
Although I was often on the receiving end of some harsh treatment, I still have good memories of my childhood.
This book documents my life from my earliest memories as a young man, apprentice electrician, soldier, council worker, business owner, gym manager, and personal and group trainer.
During that time I married the love of my life and we had three children, who have given us six beautiful grandchildren; with another on the way. Life has never been dull.
