We have just said goodbye to our boys as they are away on cub / scout camp this week at Kielder. Just the 3 of us, which will be nice to spend some Q time with Sophie. Just made us all yummy lunch of home made French onion soup with Italian cheese croutons with Brussels pate on toast. Feels like… Read more →
5000th photo, originally uploaded by DragonDrop. This is my 5000th photo on flickr. A fairly random selection but I quite like. "Your first 10,000 photographs are your worst." – Henri Cartier-Bresson. I’m half way to becoming a phographer or something. I’ve taken loads more than 5000 (I have been known to take 1000+ in a week) but the significance of… Read more →
Glorious weather weekend. The attire of flip flops, shorts and t shirt was donned on the morning after a night of going to pubclubland on Friday. Jaygo at the spec savers was our first port of call on Saturday where he gained a pair of super cool glasses. After a week of testing out a scheme of 10p for a… Read more →

Bank Holiday Special – FIRE party. 6 DJ’s, special guests, lots of toys, pop in for details.
Last week we attended the launch of the Harrogate Fringe Festival. After a general intro from the Harrogate Internation Festival (proper) Director, Graham Chalmers of Gig Scene was introduced. He gushed the passion, like only he can, about how good this thing could really be. There’s so much creativity in this town and so much creative appreciation of off mainstream… Read more →
I played my first ever game of golf last night on a proper golf course. Well – a 9 hole course if you can class that as proper, a very nice course called Ghyll Golf Club near Skipton – for the sake of this blog, I’m calling it proper. I’ve been playing screen based golf – most recently Tiger Woods… Read more →
What a carry on. Police at 1 in the morning. Having a bit of a sleep (something I do from time to time as a bit of a treat) when trouble kicks off in the flat next door to our bedroom. Shouty fighty angry trouble. (Not for the first time I hasten to add.) Shouting outside the window is fairly… Read more →
So, what do we do now? Ask the two bigger boys to share? I know from experience (with my 11 year old and 8 year old boys) that such a plan can end in a disaster.
Alison just sent me a link to a slide show she’s made of shots featuring a DragonDrop Adventure shirt. I’ll add some into the main shirt shot gallery soon – but for now.. Click here to view ’em>>

The superbosity of VOTE FIRE was champion-o-rama. It was busy from the outset – a few things were happening in town but not as much competition as there has been recently – before too long our spies were reporting that FIRE was the best atmosphere / party / vibe. The stickers were rather amusing. 3 cars, 2 vans, several hundred… Read more →
