Jake Bugg - a man to quote?

Quote of the Day - Jake Bugg Q&A: The Guardian (July 2013) -
 
How often do you have sex?

"It can vary from place to place. Being on the road a lot, sometimes it's more than necessary in a week and the next week it might not be so much."
 
I can feel this quote creeping in somewhere in my new book.

Cornish Pasty anyone?

While out and about in sunny St Ives yesterday I dropped into Poppy Treffry's shop on Fore Street and fell in love with the above print - one, because we all love a Pasty, and second, because it kind of sums up for me those early days of visiting Cornwall as a child.
 
Anyway, we've been living in Cornwall for 5 years now, my kids were only 3 and 1 years old at the time so to them this beautiful County is all they have really known, and that includes the Cornish Pasty, which I'm happy to say as a family we have embraced whole heartedly!

My Cool Allotment

Outside of my writing, most of you know I have a fairly stressful day job, and some times it gets to me more than others, so today I am off to look at a plot at my local allotment site with the aim of channelling some of that negative energy.
OK, so to prove to you that it's not me just getting old, I found this book - 'My Cool Allotment' and suddenly I feel ever so slightly hip!
Enjoy the day

My New Book

I've just finished writing my 3rd book.

What a combination hey?
Not sure what format it will take yet but it feels damn good to be writing again.

Fizz Time

It's been a slightly testing evening, so now the kids are calming down (and me!) I think I'll settle down to a little glass of fi...
