Amazing wire sculpture

On a recent walk near Alton I came across this amazing sculpture next to the path. It is at the home of  Fantasy Wire and he has quite a few installed at Trentham Gardens. It’s so fluid and you’d think the dandelion would blow away in the wind. Sensational.. Now it’s back to work for [...]

I’m flying home for Christmas

As the song doesn’t go. I’ve never spent so long looking at airline websites – an anxious wait to see if I get to go home. Not as anxious as everyone else though stuck at various places across Europe all because of snow – you know the stuff that falls in the winter…most years. The [...]

Anti inflammatories my @r$e
