My wife, Sheila is currently studying to become a Blue Badge tourist guide. She’s already begun providing Scottish tourist guiding in German, Italian and English. Offering coach and walking tours of Edinburgh, Glasgow and Fife, and the surrounding areas including Rosslyn Chapel.

We’ve just bought the web domain for the business, and I’ll be busy working on the website for the next week or two.


The Lost Soul Band

December 29, 2008

LOSTSOULBAND A2The Lost Soul Band are one of my favorite bands, but I didn’t get into them until long after they’d split up. So I was very excited to hear they were reuniting for a special pair of gigs (one in Edinburgh, one in Glasgow), which meant I could see them live for the first time. The gig was last night, and as fantastic as I had hoped.

By coincidence I was asked to design the gig poster (left), and several newspaper adverts for the gig.

Gig photos here!

Abbie’s first day at school

Photos from Feist gig

May 21, 2008

FeistWent to see Feist play The Queens Hall, Edinburgh last night. I’ve posted a few photos from the gig on flickr. Nice gig, she has some great songs and some which are on the dull side. The projections behind the band were all being created live, which was pretty impressive.

The new site

April 20, 2008

I’ve changed the website again. It’s now hosted by WordPress rather than using my own database on a dodgy free server. Should be faster, and nicer to work with and allows me to link video etc.

I’m gonna try to make a lot more posts to my blog. Not just about things my family and I are up to, but also about anything that interests me. Internet stuff, games, music, gadgets, whatever. Hope you all find it interesting. If not, you can view just my family news by selecting ‘personal‘ from the categories list on the right.

Finally updated my Flickr photo album with pics of the family over recent months.

Holiday in France

June 1, 2007

We’re just back from a holiday in the Côte d’Azur. Had a great time, dispite Abbie getting Chicken Pox half way through. Weather was fantastic 28-30℃ most days. One windy day, and rain on our last day. Our site had a great pool which went down well with the kids. We had days out in Port Grimaud, St Tropez and Cannes. I’ve returned with a shaved hair-doo, mosquito bites and missing part of my toe nail! Here’s the photos from our trip.

March Update

March 20, 2007

I haven’t updated the site for a while, promise to upload some photos tonight. Clara is now sitting up and can say “Mama” and “Dada”! Abbie is just recovering from Scarletina.

I’ve sorted out the links to my photo album and design portfolio, and have organised my flickr space so looking through my portfolio is easier.

March Mobile Pics

March 20, 2007

As promised, I’ve added some photos of the girls. These were mostly taken on Sheila and my mobile phones over the past few months.

Christmas / New Year

January 10, 2007

Had a nice break over Christmas and New Year. The kids loved all their presents, of course. We spent New Year at Sheila’s parents static in Stirlingshire.

Photos of the festive period here.
