November Rain


Was randomly listening to ‘November Rain’ By Guns N Roses this evening and I suddenly realised it’s raining.  AND it’s November.

That shits fucked up?  Can’t just be a coincidence can it??  

Must mean there are angels, God, Jesus and shit like that after all!!!???  

Mind, blown.  Kerpow.

Dad’s 70th birthday

Christ almighty!  Today would have been my Dad’s 70th birthday!

Ever since he passed away over ten years ago, I have celebrated his birthday each year by doing things that he often enjoyed during a typical week; such as (but not limited to):

* Go to Selsey and have a full English breakfast

* Listen to all his favourite music in the car

* Demolish a big curry with Kingfisher Lager and imagine him sniffing away as the Madras took hold

* Put a few quid on the dogs or horses

* Watch a game of footy if it’s on; If not, watch ‘Finding Eric’, a montage of 80’s and 90’s Man utd footage on youtube or a Laurel and Hardy film

* Randomly beep the car horn at strangers and see if they wave back or growl at them like a bear whilst they go across a zebra crossing to see if they jump out of their skin.

This year however, I’m finding it really hard to comprehend that he would have been 70 years old?  70?!?

Dad was a typical Clint Eastwood or John Wayne archetype, an indomitable spirit who had dynamite and napalm coursing through his veins; so I genuinely can’t imagine him being a little old man!

As today is a Monday and a working day, I will be unable to do a few of the things on the list above; however, come tonight, I will be toasting him with a pint of Indias finest lager!

Miss you Dad, Happy birthday!


Indian Lego Minifigs – Gunnabo Ikea Frame hack

Ikea Ribba frames are the preferred choice for most Lego minifig display frame ideas; however the new Gunnabo frames are also good for a hack.


I used panel pins to pop in some strip wood and spray painted the inner frame, just as I did with the Ribba frames.

As you can see, I decided to make a mini feature using Indian Minifigs, you know, because I’m a bit of a Joe.

Do you like my colouring-in background?  😉


I’m particularly pleased to give my Sikh minifig a beard using a Father Christmas piece left over from my Lego Advent Calendar.

The completed frame goes quite nicely with the Ribba doesn’t it?
