A house, an engagement party, graduation, a degree, New Designers in London, a trip to California, start a full time job, oh and plan a wedding. 2012 doesn't look too shabby.

What IS he up to now?

Blogging for me is a great way for me to keep everyone up to date with all the day-to-day bits I'm up to as well as the bigger aspects of my goings on.

VERY shiney

A massive thank you to Gary from work for all his help and expertise.

First coat...


She won't be the ugly duckling for much longer...

Icy window a few days ago.

I meant to post this when I took the picture, my bedroom window all iced up. The reason I'm blogging it now is because I'm at the doctor's bored out my arse because he's running an hour and fifteen minutes late. How can that be the case only two hours into the working day? Lame.

A massive thank you to Gary for helping me on the day, Graham for the

Ta da!!

Now to fill it...

Let's get cooking

If it's worth doing, it's worth doing right

It's not even got decorations on it yet!


Christmas tree!

While Sam is busy doing his car, I've been busy shaving down the tree to fit in the stand. Shame we don't have time to decorate the thing until Sunday!

I have had the best birthday ever. Cards, presents, cup of tea with my beautiful girl, a happy birthday message from my Uncle in America and all before I even set off in the morning. Then followed by a full day working on Charlie the Mini at work in the spray booth getting her ready for a fresh lick of paint.

As soon as I got home I got showered and changed and whisked away to Oliver's, the best restaurant in town to celebrate a birthday, with Verity and and Verity's mum Lynne. Thank you everyone!!

It's Verity's face!

Spot the imprint of two people who have had one or two beverages...

At least he saved the wine...

Although after laughing manically I got my phone out to take a picture and dropped it in the snow. You'd think it was midnight the amount we've had...

And a few beverages with friends to continue a most spectacular day...

Fangita the snowchav...

A very rare treat to build up our strength for the important snowman building day ahead...

That used to be our driveway...

I could not be more thrilled to have a day off with Sam and friends because of the snow, no doubt pictures of snowmen to follow! All together now, snooooooowww daaaaaayyyy!!!!!!

Last out the building...

But at least I don't have to walk to the bus stop tonight.

Working weekend

And it's very chilly in the workshop

Saturday, November 27

The snow is coming down thick and heavy!

This is not a good time to be without heating! Brrr...

-2 Degrees and the boiler has packed in.

So on goes the tiny pathetic heater, Charlie knows the best place to be! Why is it that they always need to order a new part to fix a boiler?

Dad kindly gave me a lift home last night...

... I took a while before we got going though

Me and Dad spend Friday night playing Playstation and watching GT5 replays.

Beautiful Sussex

It's just my standard trip to work that I do every day on the top deck
of the number 12 bus from Brighton to Eastbourne but the views never
fail to take my breath away.
These pictures don't do it justice.

Bleak and 'orrible

Pouring rain, hail and gale force winds.
I was pressed up against this shop front for shelter this morning when
the elements sent this sign whistling past my ear and smashed on the
