the ultimate man cave

As a long term singleton, I know the importance of having a space which is comfortable and that you can make your own.

Therefore a blog refresh was in order (and apparently I have nothing better to do this fine saturday afternoon) so here it is – new visuals, new name & next month will be a new domain.

Please bear with me whilst everything is tweaked to perfection (because i’m a complete perfectionist)  – but thanks & I hope you enjoy all the new and upcoming content…
