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.

On my way back to Newcastle now after a lovely week with V back home. I have lots of lovely pictures to upload here. A slight hiccup has left me stuck in Kings Cross for 4 hours.

I surprised Verity today by turning up on her doorstep, so back in Sussex for a week. I took a couple of snaps along the way.
After a quick catch up and a cup of tea V whisked me off to our new house. Check out my shed!

Making a house a home

Verity has been VERY busy this week. Every hour she's had available she's spent at the house trying to get as much done as possible. To keep her spirits up I bought her a present and had it delivered to her house. It's a DAB/FM radio with iPod dock. Retro and funky.

Snow business

Verity sent me this from our back garden.

The cold snap

It didn't really get any worse than a dusting in Newcastle last night but Eastbourne and Seaford seem to have had quite a bit.

Verity gets busy

Stripping wall paper and Verity's mum (Lynne) comes to see how it's going.

Does anyone know anything about fish ponds?

The one at our new house has frozen over. Should we leave the pump on? Switch it off? Break the ice? Chilly fishys

Release the gimps

You know you're unfit when your running partners have to don gimp suits to give you a chance of keeping up.

Mini moulding project

So ok, it looks like a mini that's been rolled but I'm pretty chuffed with it as my first time taking moulds and casting
