Haven't posted for a, eh?...not good for the last couple of years or so....I lost the love of my life, I got deeply in debt and lost my home, but. managed to get through all the c##p that life's grown at me.

Things are looking up a little now. New home, slowly getting my debts paid off - and my daughter, Kayleigh - and before you ask, yes, she was named after the Marillion song - gave birth to a little boy on November 8th. She even named him after me... well, my middle name, anyway. He's called Edward. Soon as I work out how to get a pic uploaded I will...I am SO jealous of his lovely long fingers, I would kill for pinkies that long!

Musically...down to my last guitar, the Squire Tele.. needs a new jack socket, I'll get it fixed next time I get paid. Still writing songs...even managed to submit one to the SSG this week. Like the old(fish) sax player in "The Commitments" said, "That was woeful. But it's a start...and I believe in starts!"

So...time to start rockin' again, I think...wish me luck, I think I'm going to need it!
