    2011 was a pretty turbulent year for The Payne crew - don't get me wrong it hasn't been all doom and gloom but there have been some pretty humongous challenges to overcome through the year.....

  2. HOST has passed me by in a blur! The preceding weeks passed in a whirlwind of preparations and now it's past the whirlwind of preparations continues for upcoming events and exhibitions.

    Many thanks to the wonderful organisation by the organisers of 2011 HOST - Andrew Wharburton & Pam Lonsdale.
