We are Ruth and Gray Abbott, we have been married for 40 years we have two children and 4 grandchildren. We took early retirement to spend time with our grandchildren and travel. Gray was in the RAF for a number of years and then worked in Electronics at a glass factory until deciding to take early retirement. I worked in Quality Assurance for a large engineering company until going on my own and doing soft furnishings for show homes, and I then with Gray decided to do early retirement. We are non smoking, but enjoy a beer and glass of wine, we like all kinds of music, theatre, walking, generally keeping fit, having a good laugh, spending time with family and friends and enjoying life.
