Wirght’s like the other UK bus builders… Continue reading He just loved to live that way
Work This week saw me working overnight in east London. I do enjoy having the freedom to roam around my old stomping grounds and love the memories it evokes. At one point I found myself driving through Shoreditch, it was 01:30am. I couldn’t believe how busy it was. The first time I remember going here… Continue reading Doomed to Live
I took this picture of my plot on my trip up on Saturday. What you can’t appreciate from the picture is how wet the ground is, it is completely water logged.

Boat We managed four days up in Norfolk last week, the weather wasn’t fantastic but it was great to get away. We went took Martha out an spent a bit of time… Continue reading Restrictive Covenants
Its been a couple of weeks since my last post, but that’s not to say nothing has been happening. Allotment I have finally got my last courgettes from the plot, I have now dug up both plants, they were starting to suffer from leaf mould and I don’t think they would have bore much more.… Continue reading I’ll be standin on the corner full of gin, when they bring your dead body in.
