Hi everyone....Pete from Newcastle upon Tyne......full time carer for my disabled wife. Love astronomy and astrophotography. I worked within Swan Hunter as an electrician till  1992 untill a certain party decided Swans had to close, since then my contempt towards them grows each day.

    Hi. My hubby looked after me for 11 years, before we got carers in. Do you think you could do with some help, so you can rest? It helped enormously.
    Best wishes
