Well, the last day of the week is upon us, and I seem to be fully over my "man flu" (Thanks again to my loyal deputy, Michelle) :-) At this point in the magazine cycle, my work is mainly office bound, and involves a lot of proof reading and corrections on layouts. This is a part of the job t ...

Man flu... it was much worse than that, honest. And wasn"t even flu.. of any variety. I dunno. A bloke is poorly and, even at work, the women think he"s skiving. No wonder we woodworking blokes (apologies to the ladies out there) like to disappear down the shed for a bit of peace and quiet : ...

And so it seems that our esteemed editor has man flu. I have just finished chatting with him on the phone and he is feeling very sorry for himself indeed. But just because our Matt has been away, it doesn"t mean that WPP grinds to a halt! Anthony and I have been busy behind the scenes, with an e ...

Today, I took a couple of new members of staff down to the workshop, so that they could get an idea of what we get up to down there. The guys, confusingly called James and James, had not done any wood work before, so it was a really interesting to see their reaction. To be fair to the guys, we bomba ...

Well, I"ve been back to the workshop again this week, finishing off my "mini workshop" space, and preparing stuff for Issue 36. To be fair, yesterday (Wednesday) was a bit of a dud day... though it is hard to put my finger on what the problem was. Our Anthony and me worked hard and did t ...

Well, another week has gone by at WWP towers. We"ve seen Issue 35 off, and are waiting for the various proofs to come back so we can correct them, and send off the magazine to the printers. Believe it or not, 35 is the Christmas issue... talk about wishing your life away! Anyways, I"ve given ...

We"re entering the last few days of the production cycle for issue 35, and already my thoughts are turning to issue 36, and the great projects we have lined up for you. James Hatter has made a pair of single beds that also slot together nicely to make a double bed... quite a good idea, I think y ...
