When I left the design agency I carried on illustrating my books. Then it all went a bit quiet for a while as things do. During this time my dad passed away unexpectedly so I returned to my home town to help my mum with her busy guesthouse which she has been running since 1975. I continue to help her run the business to this day. We get quite a lot of emails from Channel Four asking if we would like to appear on Four In A Bed. Very unlikely as we’ve watched too many episodes to want to even contemplate such a thing.
Here’s our house – Hawthorn House Hotel in Kettering.
