At Times Lacking Purpose

Why did I, fifteen years ago start a blog? A valid question. The blog grew organically out of the need to post updates about my personal website. I switched from posting rather limited sentences on which content had been updated to rambling on about my life at large. Looking back it was a way to […]

You never truly appreciate the challenges of organising a wedding until you organize your own. Having said that, ever since August 2011, I have a much better appreciation of the herculean task undertaken by generally the Bride and to a smaller extent the Groom.

Detailing Utopia

Remember cleaning your family car with your Dad? This is one of many rights of passage as a youngster. Perhaps not your Dad, maybe your Uncle, older brother, a cousin (male or female).

Probably what you expect to see in the light of Brexit and the whipped up nationalist feelings which are being harnessed across not just our country […]

Clarkson Parking

Car proud. Is that a thing? It must be, because house proud is a thing! Back in late July 2013, a few days after starting at my new (and I would like to add happily current) employer somebody scratched my car door. This was not a minor misdemeanour. They had scrapped paintwork clear off my […]
