Fire hazard

Biscuit walked past a candle earlier and Brent some of her whiskers. She's now trying to set herself on fire by the open fire.


We hadn't been to our old local in ages so popped in for a couple on Saturday night.

One of the regulars that we talk to had a word with me when I was ordering another beer at the bar.

"Here's £10"
"What's that for?"
"The bet"
"What bet?"
"Dave hadn't died so I owe you"

Basically we had a bet about 6 months ago that one of the other regulars would die before the new year. He didn't, so I gained £10!

The start of my media career

One of our friend's heard about an interesting topic on Friday's Woman's Hour (Radio4).  Before I could say what the fuck, I was inside BBC's Broadcasting House (W1A).

We're on about 28 minutes in.

It was a pretty fun and interesting experience.

Vote for April

April recently joined the Green Party and in order to make sure that each of Tonbridge's local election wards had a candidate for the Greens they asked her to stand for the election!  All she needs now is 10 signatures from our neighbours.  To help her look the part, I ordered a Green Party rosette.

Cat attack

April trying to make room for both cats to sit on her. A bit greedy if you ask me.

Great party last night

April's been in the UK for 10 years now so we decided to have an Australia party.

Great fun and I managed to stay up till about 3 which is unheard of for me these days.

The locals

Forest stroll

Lucked out with the weather.

Model railway

We found a model railway in Sherwood Forest so decided to give it a go.

Foxton Locks

Time to kill, so we did some sight seeing.

Last weekend's shenanigans

We went to Nottingham last weekend to see band of skulls. We also found a cool heavy metal pub.

Here are some photos.

Lunch in the walkie talkie

I had lunch with Steve and April on Tuesday in one of the restaurants at the top of the new walkie talkie building where he works.

Shame it was cloudy.

London gin distillery

I went here with April and the band ( minus Shaz) last night. Cool venue.

First day off of the week and bloody ill. Food poisoning mixed with the flu. Excellent.

My souvenirs from Brussels

Gig 2

Some more photos from the Brussels trip. This time in a much better venue. Great night.

Skull mug

I ended up buying this skull mug from a cool bar I went to with Ian.

Brussels Gig 1

Some photos from the first gig of the Swallows 2015 European tour. It was sadly the last we heard from April's voice.

Thursday 5 March 2015


We're on holiday. And to start it all we were treated to a free bottle of prosecco for April's birthday.

2 working days left till I'm off for 10 days

We're off to Belgium again, Brussels to be precise for another The Swallows European tour.

After that, we're off to Sherwood Forest for 4 four nights in one of those cabins with a hot tub. Can't wait.

After that we're making a flying visit to Corby, before heading to Nottingham to see royal blood.
