Well, I've finally got round to doing something I've been planning to do for quite some time. I've added two more internet domains to my growing collection :-

During my various visits back home (Laindon) since moving to Evesham, we've always gone to Southend to walk the pier. I don't know what it is about it, but I find it so fascinating. I have countless photos, and more recently I took some 360 degree panoramic photos which I have stitched together, made interactive and are now available on a new website.

The other site I have created is dedicated to one of the best applications I have ever bought on any computer - The 3D Construction Kit by Incentive Software. I had this program on my Commodore 64 and Commodore Amiga way back in the early 1990's and made quite a few games with it. I noticed that there wasn't really site dedicated to it, so here it is - with thanks to a few others who I have started chatting to on some old retro computer forums (particularly Steven Flanagan who has located lots of difficult-to-find games and materials for me to use on my new site).

Anyway, if you have a few minutes to spare, please check out these new sites.

Yikes - it has only been 131 days (or 3160 hours) since my last post.... Sorry.

I had a nightmare last night which woke me up... I kid you not. In it, I was asked to replace all PCs at the school with Apple Macs. Scary stuff!

Interesting day at work today. I created all the new Year 9 student accounts (those who will be joining the school in September), and drew up some layouts for a new classroom which is being built. Trying to squeeze 26 computers in a small room is quite a challenge!

Trying to be more regular with my postings on here - watch this space.

Its been awhile since the last post - usually if I have something to say, I'll say it as a comment on my facebook page, but anyway -

Wishing you all a Happy New Year. Here's hoping 2011 is better than 2010!

"I've been driving in my car, it's not quite a jaguar"

Here are some more pictures of my new car - I'm soooooo excited!

"Who's gonna to drive you home tonight?"

Well, it is an exciting time for me at the moment - I passed my driving test last Monday (23rd) after weeks of worry!

Not only that, but today I have also purchased my first car. A Vauxhall Zafira 7 seater from 2005. Secondhand of course (theres no way I could afford a new one), but comes with only 47,000 miles on the clock, road tax for 6 months AND a full 12 month MOT and service.

To be honest, I never dreamt that I would pass first time. The problem is I now have to wait until next Friday before I can collect it!

(Yep, thats me behind the wheel!)

He's Dead Jim...

Today was my last driving lesson before the big practical test next Monday (and fingers crossed, my last test ever, though I doubt that). Anyway, I don't know if it is some sort of sign or not, but I had my first road kill today - a suicidal pidgeon who obviously had had enough of life and decided to end it all by going under the wheels of a car.

Still... I feel pretty upset about it! I get upset if I stand on an ant, or accidently crunch a snail beneath my feet in the dark.

What am I like!
