A very belated happy 2014!

Erm, holy crap?! Where has the time gone. I just looked at this site and thought "oh it can't be that long since I did a post" - how wrong am I. Eight months since I last updated, I suck! In my defence, I've been rather busy. Being a first time new dad, acting as day to day editor for a popular rock and metal website, contributing and helping to run another rock and metal website, trying to get a business off the ground, changing my full time job, contributing back to the Drupal community and a....

Those of us who work in and a....

Arsenal's Lucky Mascot

God knows how long it will take me to finish it (Jamie's note - this was finally published when Lizzie was ten weeks and one day old!). The last month has been at times a blur and others time has moved incredibly slowly, so for my own sanity as much as anything I wanted to have a bit of a brain dump about it. I've ....

Lucky Guy

Note from Jamie: I wrote this several weeks ago, but only just got it online, so the publish date doesn't really tie in with the rest of the story - so ignore it! As someone who has writing as one of my main hobbies, I write a lot, about a lot of different subjects. I write a lot about music, sometimes about The Arsenal, sometimes about our rabbits, occasionally about Drupal, Web Design, PHP, Programming or SEO. What I rarely do is write about very personal subjects, although it does happe....
