The Squid is stirring…

For quite a while now, there's been an idea floating around among a group of my friends. It's dark and creative and it has evolved over time from a vague idea that we kind of half-heartedly chat about doing while we're drinking to something that we're actually putting a lot of work into that could … Continue reading The Squid is stirring…

Boxing training for my second charity fight got sweaty today.

This cloudy mess is the state of the mirrors in our gym after training today. Things got pretty gross. I was quite knackered by the time I arrived, if I'm honest. I left my headguard at home, so cycled from my office to home (just over 4 miles) to the gym (another 5.5 miles) between … Continue reading Boxing training for my second charity fight got sweaty today.

And the other, the wonderful Tim Ferguson, who is simultaneously one of the funniest comedians I've ever seen and genuinely nicest men I've ever met. … Continue reading I had high expectations for Laura Davis and I was still impressed

I’m finally the kind of person who makes pies from scratch

I absolutely could've been doing this for years. It's ridiculously easy. They're not perfect, but I'm pretty impressed with how they turned out, given I was making up the recipe as I went along. I am currently unable to purchase food and don't have anything I can realistically use for lunch to take to work. … Continue reading I’m finally the kind of person who makes pies from scratch
