Best December ever-which I realise doesn't ft with the on going doom vibe. Dubai again was fun and reminded me how strange a country that has no water be to have undersea restaurants like this- More TV stuff from BBC South East News promoting my 'Distinguished' project this week, with a web link to the online version- A late night phone call asking me to shoot Dara O'Briain came in whilst I was entertaining 21 women for a Mrs H spectacular last night-I could have done without the 6am call!

It did not ring because I didn't know that you had to turn it on. I know I know, but these were different times-I just thought a call would 'wake it up'. Anyway, I lost my first and only call to work for GQ Magazine. But hey, they just bought my pic and love it (see Twitter). Top proper chuffed.

Well, there you go, but a bit maddening when the job is executed to brief and completed on schedule after a fairly hefty shoot. I can't post the proposed cover, but here was the intended inside layout:
