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.

More presents!

As I wasn't able to see my friend Phil Hall on my birthday so he gave me my prezzie a couple of days ago. It's truly amazing. A 3ch remote controlled gyro-copter! Cheers mate!

A little earlier that usual this year. So much for a Christmas break, within 20minutes of getting to London on the train West End Studios call me and I spend my first day back in Sussex working. I guess it's nice to be wanted!
Pub last night with Seaford people and my first Harveys, mmmm

Beer by the river

What a beautiful day.

RIP James's PS3

As a last ditch attempt to save James' PS3 I though I would take it completely apart and see if the heat sync was making good contact with the CPU and GPU. I replaced the paste and reassembled it but the motherboard looked a little toasted in places and when tested my repair hadn't made any noticeable difference. So he's ordered a new one.


We have Internet at the flat!! Although our router/modem hasn't arrived so I spent yesterday afternoon bodging up a network from all the bits I brought up with me along with the ADSL switch thing that wires ethernet to our rooms. Proper job.

A rare bit of sun in the north east

27*C today! Nuts

Cow wine stopper!

A present from my Godfather that he brought back from Venice.

Saturday, September 24


All settled in now. Lectures start Monday. This week has mostly consisted of male bonding and heading out to make sure all out favourite watering holes are still as good as we remembered. That is until the PS3 started over heating!! I knew there was a reason I felt compelled to bring my set of security driver bits.
