They might be Giants

What happens when your long-awaited catch-up with a friend clashes with a major international cultural event…

The Kick Song

Extremely silly, but I do like this! The Stick Song it’s based on is good too…

No jokes involving lemmings and cliffs, please…

Spring clean, sprung

My new home, but with some unboxing to do.

Looking forward, looking back

I’m always better off than I think. I just have to think about it.

Scrubbing up for PRide

With sincere apologies to Simon Baylis, who was cropped out of this image by the photographer before uploading. I look good though.

Me at the PRide Awards Dinner in 2017.

Twelve months (and one week) later…

A year of unemployment. How’s that working out now?

One year on, Emma is elected (ooh – does that mean it’s my turn next year?) although I think my political satire has passed over the heads of many…

You have reached your destination (board)

I don’t care if it is sad – all hail split-flap displays!


At the end of May I helped my former employer by being an extra in a new TV commercial. Can you spot me? Can you spot me twice?

I’ve known my friend Birgit for 11,000 days today. That’s about 30 years and six weeks. I really ought to have bought her something  – lilies or pearls for a 30th anniversary. Maybe if we meet over the summer… will have to get a job first though…

Day trip to Lincoln

My good friend Charmaine and I took a day trip to Lincoln today (I needed some camera practice – still do). Here’s a selection of some that I took from the walk around the castle wall.

Fred Deakin liked my tweet.


An evening meeting old friends, making new friends – and a blast from the past.

Another anniversary

Yes… EGP is 10 years old. Sort of.

Triathlon runner

Spending a day helping out… with the eyes of the world upon us. As you do.

At the end of last night’s Yorkshire & Lincolnshire AGM, Rob Brown, President of the Chartered Institute for 2016, presented me with my Chartered PR Practitioner certificate. And I *still* couldn’t raise a smile.

CIPR finally admits to the world that I’m a Chartered PR Practitioner. A month after the event. Maybe they’re embarrassed?
