Fireworks at Scout Park – 03/11/18

My posts about fireworks are inevitably vague and full of dark, fuzzy photos so I’m pleased to announce that this post is no different. But, unlike 2014, it doesn’t contain any references to explosive diarrhea so that’s a bonus. We’ve … Continue reading

Product Review: The “Electro Hero Kit” by Tech Will Save Us

Wild Child Festival – 18/08/18

Museum of Liverpool – 13/08/18

We’re slowly getting through this thing they call the summer holidays. It’s a long haul, like the walk to Mordor. But we’re on day 29 of 47 now, which I reckon puts us around the end of the Two Towers. … Continue reading

Barking Splash Park – 03/08/18 and 04/08/18
