  1. Craig, I might have accidentally nominated you for an award. I lack the IT prowess to hyperlink the linky thing here so you’ll have to go my blog. Sorry if this is a massive irritation. It was a just a way of acknowledging my bitter and twisted jealously for your talent! Nick

    1. Haha, no irritation at all. I’m honoured. Thanks a whole bunch. I’ve already had a few more views than usual because of your post. Also looking forward to going through and seeing what the other people on your list are up to.

      1. Ah great – I’m glad you’ve taken my shocking behaviour so well…I look forward to reading your responses when you get the time.
