This will be my last upload onto the blog for this year. I worked for around six months in a small ice cream company in Gloucester. The company was called Tartaglias and they produced some of the best ice-cream in the country. I don't know if it's still going but I hope so. Anyway, I sometimes took out the ice cream van. It was good fun. I used to insist that if they wanted a particular ice cream they asked for it by name. Ah, the Lollygobblechocbomb. I probably didn't sell many of these.
I've just heard that an old school friend of mine looks at the site at times so if you're looking this time, Hi Martin Collins, long time no see. Take care and have a great New Year. To everyone else, Merry Christmas, Thank you for taking the time to look at the site. Please leave me an occassional message and Have a Great 2010.

Well, it's coming to the end of the year. It's been eventful. It didn't live up to its expectations but then again they seldom do. Still, those around me have done well. My kids continue to thrive and shine and that makes up for any other dissapointments I may have had.

I know I'm a lucky guy to be surrounded by a great family....what else could you want? Have a great Christmas and New Year.

Another 'gathering' illustration. I like to do this type of illustration. I like looking at crowds of people. There's always something interesting going on somewhere. I like to put as much of that as I can in these illustrations. I have only personnaly been on a couple of camping forays but the idea of it appeals to me. My wife has never been one to rough it so the closest we have ever been to 'going camping' was to stay at a Travelodge hotel.
