I AM BARRY PIGEON. Ep 4 out now

Another weekend. And another episode of Barry Pigeon Protects for you.

I had a great time shooting this series. Please take a look. Not long now until the explosive finale of Episode 6!!!!

You can see the whole series of Barry Pigeon Protects here so catch up if you haven’t seen it yet.

And the Barry Pigeon Twitter feed is great too! I wish I could say the funny words came out of my mouth, but it’s all down to the wonderful writers Kurt and Andrew!

Have a great weekend! And a Very Happy Birthday to my amazing son Benjamin! 14 on Sunday. How the years have flown. I love you Son!


I broke my foot!

In the least spectacular accident EVER, I managed to break the base of my 5th metatarsal falling off my pushbike. I was going really, really slowly between the house wall and the car and I passed the balance point, put my foot down…. but it slid under me and I fell. There was pain. Then there was Bex saying, “Don’t move, let me get a picture.” Here is that picture…

I’m getting around quite well really and I have mastered the art of showering with my foot in a bin bag attached with masking tape. Always a treat.

The doctor told me it will be some weeks before I am back to normal, in the meantime I am just taking things very slowly. Which is actually a rather nice change of pace for me.

Thankfully the car is an automatic so I can still drive, I just take my time with the crutches when I am walking. I can’t go too far as yet, but I’m not complaining.
