Shonky Lab 07.06 – Facts

ShonkyLabLogo300x300We are back after four weeks off. We’d like to say sorry……. but thats just the way it goes sometimes. Anyway, thanks for sticking with us.


So whats been going on with Pete and Elton during this time?


Well, Pete has been to see the Princess Bride at an outdoor showing, went to Lego land but was not the family involved in the fight that broke out. He also managed to slip through the gift shop without buying any Lego at all. *Golf clap – well done sir.


Elton went to Spain and had fun smashing his knee to pieces, only drove on the wrong side of the road once. Read the ‘Space Captain Smith’ and ‘Commandant of Alchwitz’.

Elton has seen Despicable Me 2, Monsters University, G.I. Joe – Retaliation and Sharknado. Oh what fun.

Congrats to John and Louisa Pidcock who are now married.
