Jam ring tin

For those who loved the Custard Cream tin, M&S have now come up with a Jam Ring tin (filled with superior Jammy Dodgers).

And scoop one up when you see it because, going by the empty shelves, either they’re selling out like hot cakes or are a very limited edition.  


Lego box

When I was little, Lego was my favourite thing. I used to make whole villages from the stuff – connecting the houses by roads made from pick-up sticks and driving around them with my Matchbox cars.

If I’d had a box as great as this to keep my bricks in, I might still have them. Maybe it’s time to start my 2011 Christmas wish-list. Mu-uum!


I’ve been very slack with this site recently – mainly because I’ve been super busy doing something else – but when I saw this I had to share.

Sadly, I don’t think it will fit on my bike. Maybe I’ll have to design something that will. Handlebar antlers that glow in the dark perhaps?

Malawi comes up trumps

I reckon there’s a good chance Malawi must be the best country in the world to live in at the moment because while the UK’s government is busy bickering over how best to keep the peasants in their place, it would appear Malawi’s officials have nothing more important to do than debate a bill which may see public farting turned into a criminal offence.

When I was told this I thought I was having my teets pulled but apparently not, according to the BBC website.

I can’t wait to see how this story develops. Will there be a mass demonstration from crowds of people downing copious quantities of peas and ice cream and trumping pro-parping slogans in unison? I really hope so.

Logue’s office

Barely a week into January and, thanks to The King’s Speech (which is excellent), I’m in love.

No, not with Colin Firth – he did it for me as Mr Darcy but that was 15 years ago – this time it’s with the office of his speech therapist, Lionel Logue.

I’m sure it’s not everybody’s cup of tea but it’s definitely mine and it reminds me of this Anselm Kiefer painting which I fell in love with many years ago when I saw it at the Stedelijk museum in Amsterdam…

24th December

So that’s it, we’ve reached the double doors of the last day on the advent calendar.

If you have nothing better to do today you can track the journey of the great man himself here – but remember to be all tucked up when he drops in at midnight.

Merry Christmas!

23rd December

Every winter since I moved to my current home, some wonderful person has gone around Chelsea putting Santa hats on all the statues.

This year, their heads have remained uncovered and it’s made me feel a little sad but thanks to the wonders of Photoshop, at least Dolphin Boy can have a warm head.
