Pleased with this little guy, I have plans to make more! Maybe a whole parliament more!


suspended animation

The first day of spring has been and gone and still the cold hangs on, it's grip tight. The garden has been held in suspended animation, new leaves frosted and paused. 


turning 40

A few days ago I sat drinking cocktails with a good friend, in celebration of our respective 40th birthdays. As we asked ourselves where the last decade had gone and what had happened in the intervening 10 years I realised that although I could remember a lot of the highs and a few more of the lows what I couldn't recall was the fine detail, the small nuances of life.  So here I am an intently private person, feeling the need to recall the small details of my existence in a public forum!
