A Long Overdue Update

It’s been over 18 months since I last posted here. And what an 18 months it has been. My little family has been through so much in the last 18 months I don’t even know where to start. Our oldest son is being assessed for autism, our youngest was born in June and has already …

A Note on My Recent Absence.

I’ve posted one form of this or another to most websites where I have a profile, but I feel like I owe a slightly extended edition for my own personal website. A quick look at my history on this site, or DA, or Facebook, or anything really, will show that I go through extended periods …

Works in Progress

Update 2: And now I’ve decided to make some more changes. I should be finished by this evening (Saturday). Update: So I’ve got most of the changes I wanted to make finished, but (and it’s bad form on my part I guess), I decided to start this customisation project the day before we’re due to …

There were a couple of places where the pythons for sale were so aggressive the shop assistants couldn’t even take them out of their enclosures without being struck at, and …

Homer

A couple of months ago Stacey and I decided we’d do a photo shoot of her parents’ old dog. He’s really starting to show his age now, and the depressing thing is that it’s only going to be a matter of time until the old guy isn’t with us anymore. Anyway, at the time I …
