Okay, I reckon there is still time. It is Tuesday night and the launch is on Friday. If I don’t eat, do fifty lunges, 100 press-ups and a thousand stretches each hour, I can probably lose the weight and gain the two inches that I feel I need to face the public. I don’t see any real problem with this…apart from the eye thing. Ah… You see I had cataract surgery two weeks ago and am not supposed to do […]
Hello you lovely lot, Are you well? Many apologies for the long wait between updates but got a lot to tell you. Need a coffee before we start? Milk? I’ll put the kettle on if you get the biscuits. Okay, here is the dish. The CULL special edition is going to be with you, the supporters, before Dec 2018 and the trade version out into the shops for around January 2019.

It is hot. Very bloody hot. Not that I am complaining but Grace has a black fur coat and is finding it all a little much. She is floppy and there is much panting. Here she is with her homies…hot dogs. Last week we were volunteers at the very cutting edge MIX conference here at Corsham Court. I had volunteered last year when I first arrived in Corsham and it helped me figure out the layout of the campus. Not that […]
The up side about doing a PhD is:

I am here! I have just been doing a bit of dashing around. Will catch up tomorrow but in the meantime does anyone know what this tree is? I came across it in Kenya last December. They call it the Crocodile Tree…Isn’t it gorgeous!!
