Hello, and I hope you are all well? Well, I am glad to say that this week has been less hectic, and I finally feel that I am back on track. Our repro deadline is now gone, and I am glad to say that everything went off on time, despite some initial concerns! So, this month I have been dealing with a  ...

I’m tired today. This is not really surprising as I have just flown back from the recent AAW Symposium. I flew out last Thursday and got back yesterday midday(ish) and then went straight to bed. I don’t sleep on planes and have to admit to being out of synch body-clock wise. I was fit to drop when I ...

Hi all, well I am now back and I have to say that this week has probably been the most stressful of my working life. I’ll never be going on holiday again! I have just about trudged through the mountain of work that graced my desk when I got in on Tuesday, and it has taken me about 30 hours to get to ...

I am working a piece for many months now trying to solve a couple of technical issues of balance and so on and I am, assuming everything works out, going to call the piece Sanctuary. If it all works out I will expla ...

II have been trying out a new camera – I bit the bullet and bought a Panasonic Lumix 14mp. It wasn’t the latest version, but it will suit my needs perfectly. It was interesting to watch the discussion and comparisons going on between two of my colleagues – one had a Canon Ixus and the other had a Lu ...

Well, I am definitely in the holiday mood this week. Unfortunately I do have lots to do, but I have to say that this does have the benefit of making the time pass quite quickly. I’m trying to get as much to our designer, Claire, as I can before I go away – to ensure that everything runs smoothly for ...

Well, I am back at work, decidedly jagged around the edges after having come down with a sickness bug over the weekend. Not my idea of a well-spent bank holiday I have to tell you, but hey it happens and I’ll get back to normal soon. My tummy is rumbling and rebelling at the lack of food, but I will ...
