Biscuit Face

Life is a succession of small hurdles that all of us have to overcome. The first solo flight on a bicycle, sans stabilizers for instance.

School, ginger hair and teenage girls to name a few more.

Work, Work, Work

Hence the lack of activity on this blog.

Normal(ish) service will resume forthwith.

A Good Friday

Had a family day out on the South Bank yesterday.
