A mentally active , but physically disabled writer ( mainly books ) historian ,environmentalist , Onetime teacher/lecturer ( English - as a foreign language - , Geography , History ) publisher etc. ,I need someone mainly due to my propensity for falling . He needs to be a companionable , sympathetic, willing ,open minded ,male prepared to travel and to live a multi-facetted time ‘as family’ and as my personal assistant , for I suffered polio aged six .My wife and I live with two small dogs . Our au pair is offered his own three room apartment , TV and internet facilities . He is encouraged to share our life .With a large garden, our house faces Ireland’s Lough ( Lake ) Derg in a welcoming neighbourhood , equidistant to Galway , Limerick and Ennis but with little public public transport . Our son and his family live live their own lives nearby . My main activities include travel , history , cuisine and DIY . I am easy going and enjoy sharing debate ,humour etc. I do my best to encourage my assistants to develop their own talents . A D.Litt , FRGS etc , I enjoy life’s discoveries . My family and I look forward to welcoming my new assistant and to sharing my interesting and multi - facetted life .
