Well, not often.
And when he does he swears blind he can’t remember how they got there.

Post-office – while its still there – to collect his pension he’s going to become a
Time Traveller.

But he doesn’t know that yet.

Stefan Jakubowski in brief.

Hometown - Reading - where I was raised, lived and worked until 1995. I moved to Aberystwyth for two years before moving on to Pembrokeshire where I now live with my wife Nia and adopted cat Peaches (she was already named - I whistle when I want her to come in).
