Tattychopping

Well after seeing some of Dok’s most recent work I’ve been biten by the bug of creating weird and wonderful things in art applications

So heres my first effort after a very long break, I present you with:

dog
Houston, can you smell mustard?

I have to thank Rach for the Hot Dog idea as originally I was attempting to make the whole ‘rocket’ from bread.

Well yesterday was exhausting ut at the end of it we have lots to show for it including a new bathroom suite, yay the old mushroom/brown/grey one is gone!

Highspeed Update

I'm current sat on a train speding towards London using the national express free wifi which is much better than I thought it was likely to be.

Anyway this is only a short update for now just filling people in as to my where abouts.

Since saturday we have been in Rotherham visiting Rachy's Parents.

Today we are heading to London to see Phantom of the Opera this afternoon, we are following that up by seeing Mousetrap, a show that i've always wanted to see for as long as i've been reading Agatha Christie novels.

Tomorrow we plan to visit the London Dungeon and the Tate Modern. Finally the reason for first visiting is to see Devotchka in Scala.

We travel home on Thursday for a well deserved rest.

Right I'm off to drink overpriced tea and listeniing to “I'm sorry I haven't a clue”.

Hope you are all having a good week.

Well here it comes again

I'm back to revive my blog once again.

It's been a very busy couple of months with lots going on and I didn't really feel in the mood to write in my blog for reasons explained below.

As of the 29th of February my employment with Lloyds TSB ended after a 9 and half years with my job being offshored. The past 4 months have been very odd and difficult there is something slightly depressing about training someone else to do your job.

So anyway in the next few months I plan to get some things in the house completed, I have lots of training to wade through and hopefully slot some driving lessons and test into the equation when possible, Oh and looking for a new job. Busy me!

I shall be keeping my blog updated a little more too.

Merry PGP

Well as 2007 draws to a close I thought i'd post a quick note. The last year was quiet a busy year for me yet the site still got some updates. And towards the end of the year the pace was much improved.

So thanks to those that have visited and those that commented in the past year, I hope you'll rejoin me in 2008 for what looks set to be an extremely different year for me.

So in the words of Bill Bailey:
Merry Primary Gifting Period and a happy Auxiliary Generosity Zone.

Whats the date?

I rarely write moaning posts so this could be a first for welshtroll.

calendar.jpgWhat annoys me no end, is that website owners/managers seem to believe news/blog/article entries only exist for 12 months. It's unclear what exactly happens to them at that point in time, maybe they just fade into the background noise or perhaps some form of internet meme appears and devours them.

What ever the answer, the fact remains that all of this items have a time stamp that takes the following characteristics : 24th July 13:45.

Now correct me if I'm wrong but shouldn't there be a year in that date?

I find it highly annoying when i stumble blindly onto a website that has this year-lacking date format. It's not a large change to display a piece of data that is already stored on a database with the rest of the time stamp information, is it?

So when a user visits your website they can instantly see when the information was posted, in turn this give the user chance to judge the information and how relevant is it.
