In 6 months time my current mobile phone contract with O2 ends and I can’t wait to not have a contract any more. The plan is to finally upgrade my iPhone 4 to a Motorola G, a much cheaper but very well reviewed smart phone.
My kids are at the age where I think a family trip to Florida would be a pretty good idea (they’re 9 and 3) and I was given some money unexpectedly last year which I’ve not yet done anything with.
I can’t even remember how but going back over a year now a friend of a friend contacted me about illustrating a comic as a gift for her fiancee. Much like all things that aren’t happening in the immediate future I agreed to it without really thinking. That was my first mistake.

I got through it on the second take (I messed up the first take right at the end!) and uploaded the video file, gave it a quick tweet from my very new Ukulele Go!
