Scissors and Glue!

I got the scissors out and helped my boy make his mummy a Mother's Day card last week which reminded me of a house move collage I did a while ago, so here they both are for those of you who like such things...

Men who stare at comics...

Believe it or not, there are lots of men out there in the wild who really rather enjoy a good book.  So many in fact, that there's a whole blog dedicated to them. 

Look, here's one sitting in a deckchair having a good old stare at some printed matter.

Men Who Stare At Books is a brilliant culture blog/portal, and we were absolutely chuffed to be asked along for a bit of an interview. Especially as they included the one photo in which I appear to be a clear foot shorter than Lorenzo...

Thanks a bunch for that, guys.   

Jokes aside, if you'd like to learn how to prepare a perfect cocktail for my brother, or if you fancy discovering his absolute favourite slice of Rushdie, then this is the interview for you!  Honestly.  Jokes aside.

Head over HERE for all the fun and nonsense!
