The second ten days of my LEGO Creative Challenge!
Once Squish was born, she needed to be in the hospital with her mum for a few days. Not ideal, but necessary. During the delivery period, we had our own private suite -but once Squish had arrived, we were understandably moved to a larger ward for us to recover. Still lovely, it meant sharing the space with 5 other new families. When we arrived on the ward, only one other mum was present but by the second day it was full. The initial mum on the ward was quite amusing. Shall we say, slightly Chavvy? Slightly may be an understatement. And, as you may have guessed, that’s where our story begins… Continue reading

I know, I know I’m a web designer, I get called around to people’s offices and workplaces and they offer me warm beverages until they are blue in the face. But the simple fact is, I decline every time. If they don’t have squash (shame on them) or fizzy (even more shame!) then water will have to do. No offence to you T&C drinkers – but I have a right to drink the way I need to. So, to better the article mentioned above, here are MY numbered points about my struggles as an ‘I don’t drink Tea of Coffee’ guy: Continue reading
