This weekend Dave and I went up to Leeds for a short weekend break, and yes I took some photos :) ..... Dave however took a lot more ......

4 and 5. Reflections (from a walk along the canal and the river)
6. The (revamped) Corn Exchange
7. Spiderbaby and Crickson's farewell drinks party at the Vic with the lovely Ninjacodevicar :)

Well, where to begin ..... firstly a big thank you to Joker :) ...... when I got home from work today there was a little parcel waiting for me ..... it was the prototype of a book of my first 100 moblog cartoons ..... I knew it was coming but when I got it, and I actually got to see it for real, I must say it brought a big smile to my face (and after a long stressful Monday at work, that was most welcome) ..... I am so indebited to Joker for doing this, I would never have had the time or the confidence to do it myself ..... tomorrow I am going to take it into work and show it to Jenny (Alex's mum) ..... for those new to the blog, Alex (neutropenicalex from the blog) was the son of my friend Jenny. It was Alex that brought me to the blog, he started his own blog when he first went into hospital for a bone marrow transplant, sadly less than a year later he died. But, hey, Alex was such a lovely upbeat lad who really loved the blog and was very appreciative of all the support that it gave him that I know a book of cartoons dedicated to him and designed to raise money for ELF would have met with his approval :)

Crickson and Spiderbaby,
A lovely Moblog pair,
Are leaving for the states
(I hope they'll be happy there)
From gin and jaffa cakes
And beer and yorkshires pies
To radioactive Froot Loops
Clam chowder and french fries.
Crossing the atlantic,
A goody bag and freakdog,
The love and the best wishes
Of all here on the blog :)

Last of the band series ...... plus 'Bird's Custard' in situ ..... My kitchen table is not usually so bare .... and that rail usually has kitchen utensils hanging from it (plus various other dangly things) .... I took the opportunity of doing a quick clean up before hanging the work of art ....... it has been much admired :)

A lovely lanky Leeds lad
Forged from this fine metal,
Makes the name of a band,

Well ... I hope they are still going strong ... OK, can you name the band and name the album ...

Have had a real Moblogging weekend :)
Saturday went up to Cambridge and met up with Geodyne and various other Mobloggers ...... today (Sunday) I met (albeit very briefly) with Ninjacodemonkey (another lovely member of the Leeds Crew) who very kindly delivered Beth's 'Bird's Custard' artwork to me (safe and sound)......

While looking through the blog one day
This singer's name I spy,
So I did a little doodle
Of this rather lovely guy ....
I have not been too kind to him,
But the cartoon did dictate
That he had to disgorge
All the food that he just ate ....
This is not a band name, but the name of a singer that I saw mentioned on the blog ..... very obvious is you know the name of the blogger in the pic ......
