Bunnyhop and yunki – thanks very much, really appreciate it. Strangely it has been in no small part thanks to discovering an interest (and dare I say talent 🙂 ) in photography that has got me out of a fairly deep depression.
Still up for that 'crocks ride' at some point btw if you are.Posted 8 years agojohn_drummerMember
not so much this year (2010) as the last 12 months:
visited elder sister in Canada for her wedding; did a nice road trip from Calgary to Vancouver & back
saw youngest sister get married (ok, not as exotic as Canada, but Scarborough's not bad)
my band started playing gigs and getting radio airplay, going down well
watching 5-y-o niece growing up
