Well, what a year…

…and thank gawd it’s over, frankly! It’s been an incredibly difficult year for many people, and 2021 feels like it’s going to be a continuation of these trying times, but the most important thing is that we all stay safe and sensible. Being at home a lot, and not being able to attend snooker tournaments, […]

New Site: My Manics Photo Gallery

For many years now, in fact since my mid-teens, I have been a Manic Street Preachers fan. I was rabid about them to start with, followed by a dip in my fandom as I moved on to other areas of my life. I reconnected with the band in 2014, although not as fervently as before. […]

Throwback Thursday – The Changing Of The Eyes

A friend of mine wrote a Facebook post yesterday, about how her eyes had been changing in colour, from fully blue to partially brown, due to various factors. While it’s not common, eyes can change colour throughout your life – and, indeed, mine changed colour, from blue to green, during my early twenties. I have […]

Throwback Thursday – Schmoozing (or standing like planks) With Players

Finding myself at a bit of a loose end this afternoon, and very little is inspiring me creatively, so I thought I would post a few photos of us with some players that we’ve met. We don’t have many photos with players as, believe it or not, we’re actually quite shy and don’t like to […]

New blog look

So, I was sick of seeing that succulent every time I logged in, and lockdown had me without enough projects (this may be a lie), so I decided to build a new blog theme. Not hugely packed with bells and whistles, but I hope you enjoy it. All feedback appreciated! p.s. – there are some […]

Life in Lockdown – Working Through

Hello, readers (yes, I know there’s probably no-one out there now!). With the current situation, we find ourselves with more time on our hands than ever, having to stay inside save for work, shopping and exercise. With this in mind, we are hoping to create more blog posts soon when we have suitable topics to […]

Goths at the English Open 2018 in Crawley
