A fair bit has happened since my last post, the major thing being that I've been diagnosed with type 2 diabetes.

It wasn't a massive shock, I was symptomatic, so thought that was probably what it was. Unfortunately the blood tests also showed an extreme deficiency of vitamin D. A low count would be 30. Mine was <10.

So lots of new and

camy:
Hey that's awesome (about your work)! I also have low vitamin D so I know how it feels like!ย 
narshada:
Yeah it sucks. (Vit D) Apparently it can take up to 3 months to get back up to a decent level. :s

So three friends and I decided to start a Star Wars related podcast. After several issues and a name change, we're finally on iTunes!

The Garbage Will Do

Also, if you're not an iTunes user, we have the raw feed too!

We don't take ourselves very seriously so there's some laughs in there and the first episode has a few sound...

Just got back from an absolutely amazing three day weekend in London at the Star Wars Celebration. Finally, somewhere I can not only buy a lightsaber, (I bought a Vader force fx sabre and turning that thing on & off is never getting old!) but walk around with it without feeling marginalised or ridiculed.

I went with 4 other friends & we had the best...

This morning I met with a GP about my anxiety and depression issues. That in itself was a difficult thing for me to do and obviously made me very anxious. He was really nice and also funny, which helped. I am starting a course of medication from tomorrow, which will be reviewed in two weeks time. I'm not allowed to drink and I'm...

In my last blog I talked about what a bad year it's been. I mentioned my daughter and my stepdad dying and started to touch on my mother's issues.

Shortly after that, she was arrested for drunkenly driving her car into a parked car. She was unharmed. Within a month or so she'd died of organ failure.

I've written a short...

Wow! Read all that! Sorry for your loss. I know this was over 3 months ago. How are you doing? ย

Yeah things have settled down now thanks. Just taking it a day at a time.

This one was more conceptual in nature, (I always hate using that word, since that episode of Spaced.) hence the bodypaint. Anyway, the first shot came out pretty much as I'd envisaged it, which was nice. I was great to do a shoot to my own design, although I did steal the lighting setup from Peter Hurley for the first one and Joel Grimes...

I thought I'd written a more recent blog than July!

Wow, loads to catch up on. Our daughter has been diagnosed with hydrocephalus, (water on the brain,) as well as hypermobility. At the moment we are also awaiting more diagnostics to be done by Great Ormond St children's hospital, after being referred there by Addenbrookes in Cambridge by the genetics dept. She's...

Wow, so sorry to hear that E has got water on the brain! I was sent to Great Ormond Street myself as a kid for tests to see if I too had water on the brain... turns out I just had a big head!ย 
stenno:
Hope the surgery goes ok. If you ever need any help then let me know. Shame I don't live more Central to put you guys up. Take care and say hello to your ladies for me have a great xmas!ย

Just did a work friend's wedding recently. Yes, that's me in the feather boa and odd, censorship shades.

I also shot an SG set for @Darkdreamer, although I've heard nothing back so I can only assume it wasn't accepted.

Sometimes I look at my photos and think some of them are pretty good and that I've made the right decision
