  • Lovely tonight

    Andy specially learnt & performed this song for our wedding day. 3 years later, after much pestering he has finally recorded his version of “Lovely Tonight” by Joshua Radin, as part of his #carsessions, and made it available on YouTube.

  • Re-design

    Since my last post around 9 months ago my personal life has been dramatically re-designed. My wife and I moved out of our very comfortable sea-facing flat, bought and drastically renovated a house in suburbia, and a month ago had a baby son called Maximilian, all the while I’ve been hugely busy at WooThemes which […]

  • WordPress tumblogging with WooThemes

    I thought it be appropriate that I test out our own WooThemes product – the WordPress Tumblog toolkit.

  • Swans on a frozen lake

    This morning I hacked the snow off my car windscreen and drove to Wimbledon Park to snap some shots of the snow on my Canon 7D. The UK is currently experiencing some pretty cold and icy weather. I found some very cautious swans crossing the frozen lake, and put together this video montage trying to capture the moment.

  • Brothers Streep

    So I’ve blogged/bragged about my mates band The Brothers Streep before, but that was way back in November 2006. They’ve grown in band members AND groupies since then, but their latest feature on national television here in the UK should hopefully take them one step closer to global domination.

  • 2008 at a glance

    2008 has been an incredible year for me, with this blog helping narrate that story. Although I’ve been far less active on my blog this year I’ve pretty much covered all my highlights. So without further ado here they are in a chunky, link-baited end of year post: I saw the last few sunsets of […]

  • Stand your ground

    Quoting a client for a project is never a fun task. Crunching numbers, trying to figure out how long a design is realistically going to take you, pushing your diary around to find an open slot, deciphering how easy/difficult the client is going to be and how much feedback they are going to bombard you […]
