My Music choice today is called "Musica Universalis" by the artist "Mike Oldfield", its the last song on the album "Music of the Spheres" and the only way to listen to this 1 song is to listen to the 13 tracks before it as well.
Tuesday 16th March 2010 - 2 of my best friends went to Florida recently and got me this keyring, Mickey mouse as the Sorcerers Apprentice in Fantasia is a favourite.

Today my song choice is 'In My Arms' by Kylie Minogue from the album 'X'
Monday 15th March 2010 - I had such a busy day today, Lunch with Mum, unpack from Ireland, hosting an evening of magic at the Portsmouth Magic circle and a load of other bits to do too. Its just a quick pic today as i am so tired after my weekend, Its not a good photo.

Saturday 13th March 2010 - So, yesterday i said i would tell you a little bit more about my work this weekend, Basically i am a giant Chicken rider, as you can see its the Chickens who are giant and not me.
I am part of a group called Clucking Fantastic who travel the world with 3 rare giant chickens. There are only 5 people in the world qualified to ride Chickens, they are Sean, Nathan, Gemma, Sharon and myself, anyone else who say they ride chickens are fakes.
Here i am with 2 of our 3 Chickens in our changing room in Cork, Ireland.
Yes its an unusual job i know but hey, someone has to do it and it gets me travelling all over the world.
Today i would like to recommend the song 'The Dog Days Are Over' by Florence and the Machine
Friday 12th March 2010 - Yes it looks like i am drinking Champagne but its actually a Pear Cider. I am in Ireland for work this weekend and i will explain more about my work in tomorrows photo.
I actually very rarely drink because i am often driving and there are not many alcoholic drinks i like but as i was not driving all weekend i thought i would have a cider (or 2).
Today i would like to recommend the song - Modern Inventions by The Submarines from the album Declare a New State!
Thursday 11th March 2010 - Olly Cat - This is me with my cat Olly, He is a lovely cat and we have had him for about 5 years. We got him as a stray one Christmas eve hence the name Olly (holly).
I have been packing today as i am working in Cork in Ireland this weekend, I wont be able to upload any photos while away so i will do them on Monday.
Today i would like to recommend the song Cry Me a River by Michael Bublé - It has the most amazing opening ever, you may recognise it as the BBC Winter Olympics theme.
