Brother Makes the Press

Nope - not for his dodgy IM photo, although this one in particular is definitely worth some sort of award, but coz he can paint. Not walls, or furniture, but cars (real ones) and wheels, and other difficult stuff. So well in fact that he got nominated for Young Painter of the Year in the UK, and had to go all the way down south for the final competition.

He did great, and ended up coming second, just missing out on representing England in the European competition, but still coming away with a few worthwhile goodies (and his photo in the article below).

So congrat's bro, and good luck with the bike test on Tuesday. And take it easy when you pass - I'm not flying back home just to visit you in hospital.....

Bex and Matthew Visit Denver

So the last few weeks, we've had the pleasure of a visit from my brother Matthew, and his girlfriend Bex. They went home on Thursday night, so thought it was about time that I got around to uploading a few pics etc from the visit. Hopefully they had a blast - I know we definitely did.

We did manage to get them both to the top of Brecke, and they actually survived the whole way down...

We also got a great impression of Matthew's seal like ability to catch the occasional shrimp that gets thrown at him too. It was obvious that him and Gareth had been practising all the time in the basement, when we just thought they were playing XBox.
