Mother, Sara, Nik came round for a few hours today. The original purpose was for Nik to see Mother and Sara before Christmas.

 NOV  29 FRI 

Mother's 75th birthday - I drove to Mother's in Aldershot to give her the birthday card and advent calendar I had bought for her. I went to lunch at the local cafe with her and Jamie.

 NOV  25 MON 

Jezz and I took another day down to Brighton. The intention was for us to do a spot of Christmas shopping but it took on a food-themed day. We had lunch in Leon in the town centre. It was excellent. We also stopped off for a tea and cake in Brass Monkey, a tea room in the Lanes. Jezz bought me a jumper, I bought a second-hand pair of Diesel jeans and a few Christmas gifts for other people.

 NOV  16 SAT 

Jezz and I drove to St. Neots and went to see Kelly, Chris, Ethan and Jake. We saw their new house and met Sabre, the dog. We also were treated to dinner by dining at The Brampton Mill, Huntingdon.

 NOV  7 THU 

Jezz and I spent another day out, down in Brighton. This time, after a quick brunch at Burger King, we headed to The Grand and had High Tea in the afternoon, in the terrace.

 NOV  4 MON 

Once again at Jay's tattoo studio. This time it was Jezz in the chair. He finally got his tattoo that he's always wanted, the tree of life. It's different as it involves a Japanese blossom tree, a symbol of how fragile and precious life is as it only blossoms once a year, for one month. It's positioned in the centre of his upper back, between the shoulders.

 OCT  11 FRI 

Nikki returned to Jay's tattoo studio, The Tattoo Emporium in Surbiton to have an old faded tattoo brought back to life. I went with her to keep her company.

12 November 1924 - 12 April 2008 "The biggest loss in my life that is, and always will be... my dear father. He continues to live on inside of me: with his laughter in my mind and his love in my heart. Broken and lost, I spend the never-ending task of picking up the pieces... and re-living some of my most cherished memories that have Dad in them." ~ Wayne


A page dedicated to those who have been near and dear to me and that have passed on. 


This page has links to almost all of the mini-videos that I have created over the years. Some are humorous, some are nostalgic and some are in memory of a loved one.


A controversial page dedicated to men with a certain attraction as they go about their day. As well as my own contributions, many photos that appear are submitted by fans of the page.


This page is all about the cars that I have either had the privilege to drive or ones that have owned or co-owned. Some of the pictures are of the actual car but of the ones where I didn't take a photo at the time: I have had some fun trying to find a picture that best matches the car.


Here's an iPhone app that started a trend of photo editing in comic strip style, just for a laff.

RECOMMENDALTONS has its own recommendations page: if there's a business you're after, then have a look to see if we used the same line of work from someone... if they were fab, they'll be on this page!



We would like to remind our infrequent visitors to the "Previous Quotes" page. Some folk have contributed to over the years without even knowing it! The Previous Quotes page is all about either wacky, hysterical, inappropriate and even beautiful statements that have been said by those near and dear.
