About me

Gender Male
Location Germany
Introduction My name is Kirk and this is my blog. Straddling the world from England to Australia, I used to live in a bijou apartment, in a very old town, near to the French border with Germany. I now live on the outskirts of Melbourne, Victoria as we prepare to build our new home. I live with my partner of ten years and together, when not working, we have a rather happy life collecting 'stuff'.
Interests Reading, Writing, Harpsichord, Cooking, Travelling, History, Gardening, 13th Century England, Georgian Architecture, Interior Design, Collecting Antiques
Favorite Movies Mrs. Miniver, A Funny Thing Happened on the way to the Forum, the Margaret Rutherford Miss Marple Movies, The Wicked Lady, The Wrong Box, Glass Bottom Boat. I also rather enjoyed the film Mirror Mirror.
Favorite Music Music of the Baroque Period. I also like Renaissance and some Early Music. I have a soft spot for music from the 1980s as well.
Favorite Books There are many many books I like. I love my old cooking books. I am a big fan of non-gratuitously violent, murder books from authors such as Agatha Christie, Ellis Peters and the great Kerry Greenwood. My collection of poems by Dame Edith Sitwell is always nearby. I enjoy some of the works by Nancy Mitford. I also love my 'biography' of Henry III by Sir Maurice Powicke. There are many many more besides these!
