I am married to Spiderbaby and live in Banbury, Oxfordshire after eight years living in the USA and Sweden. I am working and training as a clinical scientist for the NHS in Oxford.


There are now over ten years of photographs on my blog! It all started with a photograph I took on the 1st of May 2004... It's been a wonderful journey, thank you all who have shared it with me, and made this blogging community one I keep coming back to!

Interesting things I read recently:

"Only one in five people born [in the UK] since 1975 believes in God".

"For every dollar invested in the Human Genome project, $141 was returned to the US economy". Francis Collins, NIH

I am Pavlovs_dog on PSN and would be happy to link up with Playstation-owning mobloggers : )

Too Much Information: The first album I ever bought was the Fraggle Rock soundtrack. Pretty cool, eh? I was only 16 : )

Visa finally comes through

Me and Spiderbaby have recently applied for Australian working visas and mine finally came through today!

They made me jump through a fair few hoops though - I was required to take a health check in York. They didn't tell me that they'd need a urine sample for a diabetes test. It was a very hot day and well... It took 40 minutes and 6 glasses of water before I could fill that small pot!

Wedding pictures coming up : )

You're moving to Oz? For how long? Where about's are you going? I've got a job offer in Sydney, so may catch up with you after my Vancouver stint is over.

Well... Ann hasn't got her visa yet so we're not sure. Originally we only applied for visas so we could apply for all the jobs, not just the ones ear-marked for international candidates. It's entirely possible we'll end up going somewhere else.

Awww... Don't worry, we're not going anywhere yet. And as I've said before, we've no firm plans for Oz. We could ultimately end up anywhere.

*makes gesturing motion toward Vancouver*

It's a good idea to get visa approval first I guess. I've heard the Australia visa stuff is crazy though, with a full medical and whatnot.

Are you going to be around at Christmas? I'm going to try and come home this year, seeing as it's been 2 years since I was last in England!

I think it's most likely that we wont be. We really don't have any firm plans, but if we don't find work in the EU before Ann's contract expires in a couple of months I think we'll chance it in Oz.

Suran and Tina were due to move out there in September but have had to postpone the move due to an illness in Tina's family.
