I make things on the web, mobile and in the actual world.

I've done lots of bits and bobs over the years, and right now I'm mostly working on this.

I enjoy speaking about things I like, most recently this. You can email me if you'd like, and I'm on twitter.

the largest Pickles jar in the Universe!! For only £1!!!!!!!!
and they're actually delicious too, not what you'd expect from £1 fare.

You should be impressed E.sheep, especially if you are a fan of gherkins (As am I, so Nah Nige) - imagine!! Can you even contemplate the grandeur of this jar of pickled goodness!? Live off these for a week? I intend to!

But Alfie looks like he's auditioning for a Weird Science remake, so that's okay.

Well anything that references Weird Science is good.

Oingo Boingo does the theme song, you know... :D

"I found this site after hearing someone else talk about it on a bus"

Poppy, I think I may love you :)

And as to £ stores, we should totally compare notes.

Poppy says:

Finally my days of Eavesdropping led to something great!
I heard something else which is terrible, two people in a £store they had a basket FULL of cleaning products/garden/DIY things and one of them walks over to the food (next to me) and the other says "don't buy food from £stores it's probably got something wrong with it" i looked up and she's like "ooh sorry. you can eat it" WHAT? I bloody know i can eat it...LoL! i do NOT need permission from a woman who doesnt know a discount when she see's one :-P x

alfie says:

so RUDE! thoroughly rude, the sweets and candy section in my pound store is *incredible*, truly, I have to stay away from that section when I go in as they always have two for a pound offers on like half kilo bags of sweets. Are you a London £ store visitor? If so, check out the one on Camden high street, it is teh r0x0rs.

14th Apr 2006, 17:43

Poppy says:

Yeah I am a London £store visitor...I really couldn’t believe what that woman said, and she didn't even both to lower her voice LoL! So, you cant eat "cheap" things but you can bathe and clean your house in it?! I bet their cleaning products contain bad BACTERIA! He He
I’m grateful for £stores, there’s nothing like a bit of retail after a bad/hard day, and £stores allow a POCKET FRIENDLY shopping spree…everyday :-P

Poppy's P.S says:

MoBlog is not good...I never thought I would be interested in other people's blogs...but picture blogs have a spell on me!!! Like I said before, i Googled this at night, with a "mighty bright" on, eating sweets, i WAS planning to go to sleep 20minutes later (approx) and at 8AM what am i doin'? MoBlog/eBay & MSN tut tut

alfie says:

every day joy, it is true :)

So what were those people saying on the bus that lured you here?

14th Apr 2006, 18:04

alfie says:

moblog and msn for me too :) was meant to go round to my mums and fix her pc (amended to monday now) and my sisters for wild boar and new potatoes tonight (I can hardly believe I passed but also, amended to tomorrow), but instead I am going to curl up in bed and read, occasionally moblogging and msn'ing - it's a hard life really.

Poppy says:

The bus conversation went something like this:

*talking about work*
A: He is gonna be SO pissed tomorrow
B: why?
A: I havent done any work...and he was relying on me getting a lot done
B: What the hell was you doing? You was on the computer for ages today
A: I've found Moblog (at this poing i was like "found" hmmmmm and leaned ever so slightly closer)
B: A What?
A: Well, it's like blogs yeah, you know what they are right?
B: yeah...i used to write one
A: Well...this is like one but like with pictures and stuff
B: thats stupid, what if you are talking about work and you have a picture of a flower? (I start to giggle)
A: No! It's your own pictures, like of your phone or cam and stuff
B: ohhhhhhh clever
A: so...I found this one my usual round of browsing...and i'm hooked, some people blog interesting things
B: interesting?
A: yeah!
B: ooh...remind me tomorrow at work and i'll check it out...are you joint up?
A: not phone camera is just broke. no point
B: ok. i might. if its good
A: you'll be more hooked then me

THEY then get off the bus leaving me totally and utterly Intrigued, i go home, forget about it totally and then had my memory jog at approx 2AM he he...
the way she said "some people blog some interesting stuff" she lowered her voice, i was practically falling off my chair and i was thinking "i must find mobby log" LoL!

alfie says:

I cant tell you how cool that is, far and away the best thing I've heard all week, and this has been a week of good news. You've so totally made my day love.

14th Apr 2006, 18:32

Poppy says:

Glad to hear that! Honestly though, it was so STRANGE how she talked about it, in low tones and it was like she couldn't find a word other than "it's....great!", it got me thinking: "ok. So, she can't find a word other than great for it and can't really explain it's fabulousness. and people blog (whispers) interesting things" This. really could solve my boredom altogether! and...Alfie, to make your day once more, it has, many a time ;) xx
