For those of you that knew about my freefall jump for children in need, as you can see I landed safely.

into the Fall
Well the year is moving on and an update on life in the world of Ol must be given.
The last few months have been interesting. First teaching year out of the way and workload has reduced courtesy of a change of planning style meaning I can actually start produce more artwork again. The summer saw Myself and Jonny travel up through Sweden to norway and back down (PHOTO INSERT: Sweden/Norway Border "Narvik"). Alas I am in the world of the singleton again as myself and Deb have seperated but I have to say she has been brilliant and in terms of breakups it's been good (if that's a word you can really use?) Friends for life. I've been painting the barn 'fireside' red which is a kinda terracotta and also started printing up some of my photos large format. I've had various peeps online and off asking about copies of my photos and there will be a website online soon to sell a few limited prints I'll email those interested wth details. I'm teaching 12 students this year which makes life easier and spending time either playing World of Warcraft (pop onto argent dawn and wisper Olivius if your online peeps), looking forward to City of Villians in a month or so; people interested in MMORPG's will know what I'm talking about. apart from that I'm saving up for holiday next year, haven't decided where yet; possibly sweden or barcelona again otherwise zimbabwe (victoria falls), japan, new zealand... depends on costs and who I'm going with. Anyway enough for now, hope you're all well fellow livejournalists, take care, Olly x
Today heralded a trip with Jonny to see the festival's "Luminarium" offering. For more photos see my flickr photo archive.

just incase anyone ever needs to know, an RAC breakdown van cannot make it to the 11th floor of Norwich's Riverside Car Park...
..however the little man inside can so despite having to wait from 5pm until 7:40pm for him to arrive all was well with what could have been an awkward vehicle recoevery had he not fixed my car by simply spraying a few connections.
