FIRE : Boxing Day 2010 – timelapse

FIRE : Boxing Day 2010 – timelapse, originally uploaded by DragonDrop. Here’s a A time lapse of set up, mid party and last orders from our boxing day extravaganza party. It was officially a good laugh. We had two floors – this being the downstairs party. Superb music from the DJs, brass and percussionists, top atmosphere. Upstairs was also super… Read more →


BOXING DAY EXTRAVAGANZA , originally uploaded by DragonDrop. Quite excited about this. Got all sorts going on. I’m going to be quite busy. Conga playing, taking photo’s, generally milling around and I’m doing 2 DJ sets – one early doors – chilled out walk in music, the other a funk and rare groove type thing upstairs. See you there!

Can you draw the internet?

Can you draw the internet?

Saint London are asking the question – Can you draw the internet? They’ve crafted an experiment in the form of a website where they are trying to work out who the more imaginative is – the creative industry or a bunch of 10 years olds. I thought I’d give it a go and here’s what I came up with: Have… Read more →

Commuting sometimes sucks

My standard (condensed) commute. Yesterday was different. Yesterday was perhaps the worst commute I’ve experienced in a long time. An adventure of sorts, but certainly not an enjoyable one. My often beautiful drive across The Yorkshire Dales from Harrogate to Earby, was mired with multiple instances of horridness. Horizontal rain denied any natural beauty to make its way through my… Read more →

I ate this

Wrapping up Felix’s birthday week I made a Matt Spesh once we’d got home and settled back in for a day. One of the most viewed pictures I’ve ever taken (largely due to the fact that flickr blog used it) was of a very similar scene. My fryups are world famous.

Kelvedon Secret Nuclear Bunker

Some tourist attractions feel like a glossed over, sanitised version of the real thing. Often millions are spent on audio visual this, interactive that and often loose a bit of sight of what the main event is. This is certainly NOT the case with Kelvedon Hatch ‘Secret’ Nuclear Bunker, which we visited yesterday. Kelvedon Hatch was built as an RAF… Read more →

West Mersea

West Mersea

Stunning day today. The weather was amazing. We headed for the an island called Mersia – because I’d read about “The Oyster Bar” there.  We arrived a short while before it opened so decided to go for a walk along the beach. A very picturesque beach on a day like today – hundreds of little beach huts. – all painted a different… Read more →

Harrogate to Rawtenstall to Tiptree

Harrogate to Rawtenstall to Tiptree

Jaygo eats a well needed snag sarney after his night on a train.. Felix’s birthday today and we’ve set off on an adventure. Quite unorthodox for me to display a non birthdayee on a birthday blog – but we were up and out before the usual prezzies in bed tradition this morning. After Felix’s close buddies came over for a ‘sleep’… Read more →

Sophie's self

Sophie’s self

Sophie painted this lovely picture of herself at school.  I snapped it when we went to visit her teacher for a parents evening. It sounds like she’s doing really well in her first term at Grove Road. One of the many things that were pointed out by her wonderful teacher was that she knows what she wants. Interesting. Some kids… Read more →
