• I got to marry Rebecca Hainsworth for the second time in a year. Not without the help of so many of our friends and family to whom I鈥檓 eternally grateful. Here鈥檚 a favourite from the pictures @kelliescottphoto.co captured. I鈥檒l trickle them out over the years to come. This is me and the bride in front…

  • My wedding is in 1 week 馃憖

  • Lately, I’ve been working on my website in the evenings. It’s been fun! It reminds me of the early days, staying up late learning, coding, breaking things, fixing things. I’ve put this down to a few things, all the drama about social media has made me fall in love with my own site, posts and…

  • I’m sat in bed in Colorado where I’ve spent the last few weeks of the year. With my new Wife, Becca and her family. Looking back on one of the biggest years of my life, I feel proud of what I’ve achieved and positive of the year ahead. At the beginning of the year I…

  • I finally made it to Colorado, exactly 24hrs after I was due to arrive. So glad to be reunited with Becca and enjoy a good nights sleep. The air is crisp, chilly and the mountains are dusted with snow. Delightful.

  • The test is done the results are in. I passed! But it was a wild ride. Me and my instructor had a two hour lesson planned before my test and all was going swimmingly… until the car broke down. We stopped off at a garage for a pasty, obviously. The car failed to start as…

  • It鈥檚 test week, my driving test that is. I started learning in July, I鈥檝e had around 10-15 lessons and my test is this Thursday coming up. I鈥檓 fairly confident in my driving but super anxious as 1 silly mistake could cost me the test. I鈥檝e really enjoyed learning to drive and looking forward to being…

  • Life is wild at the moment. Never been pulled in so many directions. Must of it is amazing, fulfilling and fun but some of it is daunting, traumatic and terrifying. 鈥淵ou’ve got this buddy!鈥

  • There’s no where like Ireland. Storms all the way up north then a break to let in the heat of the sun. Happiest of birthdays to @bbill10. It鈥檚 so fun doing life together and going off on mini adventures. Epic waves at Ballintoy Harbour this morning. This place always reminds me of Breath of the…

  • Just got back from lunch at Fruit Shop with Becca and there’s a letter addressed to Rebecca Billingslea. We both look at each other knowing this is probably from the Home Office as the only mail Becca receives here at the moment is Amazon packages. Becca rips it open and it reads “Investigation”, “Sham marriage”…

  • I鈥檓 getting old. I recently turned 36 and a matter of weeks later I my knee decides to stop working. What did I do to upset you knee? I鈥檝e had to cancel some teaching work and I鈥檓 currently hobbling around the house working on web stuff. It could be worse but injuries send me into…

  • Driving Lesson #3: Sometimes you need to use things wrong in order how to use them right. I had my first scary moment driving and I鈥檓 making note of it here in a dear diary moment. I鈥檓 learning in a diesel engine and they are very forgiving, maybe to a fault for learners. I own…
