Hey guys,

Sorry for my disappearance recently. Been busy as a Bee. First things first, I split up with my fiance. Sad news, but undeniably predictable. No hard feelings and sour faces between us, sad that it didn't work out, but thats just the reality of the situation.

On to the good news... I have myself a job! Well, sort of. I'm currently working (unpaid, volunteering) at a guitar shop in Kingston called Charlie Chandlers Guitar Experience.

It is amazing, they specialise in commision sales of boutique guitar equipment. Anything from early 50's Gibsons with original PAF's to Parker Fly Midi guitars.

It's a fascinating guitar store to work in, and in truth, way out of my depth! The store is owned by a luthier and it does attract a few top dogs. We had Pete Townsends technician in the other day, along with Jeff Becks. They were looking at buying a Fulltone TubeTapeEcho... At only around £1000!

If you're ever in Kingston, or indeed london and fancie a little journey to a fascinating little store full of gems! Come by and see me!

I'm hoping that they'll look to hiring me full time once my trial/volunteering is up, but im not certain on how that works. It appears that they could do with the extra help, so fingers crossed!

Hope all is well with everyone,

I'll be making a bit more of an appearance when I get used to full time work life!
