G'day from the depths of Dorset,

Hi I'm Tony and live in Dorset. I'm not very good with writing or speaking in groups so forgive me if I'm a little quite. But heres a brief bit about me.
I've been married twice, (both past tense) and lived in Australia for 6 years which was the making of me. I've never really understood why I'm supposed to go out and work for 5 day's and spend for two. But I have tried. After my last marriage failed I decided that I was done with living in a house, they never felt like home. So now I'm living in a small caravan 7 miles from Bridport, my nearest town. I don't have a car, but I have a dog so we walk. Now it's winter I cook on my home-made wood burner or outside. The only modern facility I have is power, which I'm aiming to get rid of. Not because of cost but because my aim is to be self reliant. So my aim for the near future is to learn as much as I can with the aim of having to earn very little to survive. At the moment it's 40 a week. But I'm earning more at the moment so I can purchase the items I feel I'll need.
Anyway I waffled on a bit a now, so that must do.
Oh and HELLO!

Hi Tony,
