At the start of the year I was working Wicked Web in Clerkenwell, living in West Norwood and had been going out with
I took Lettice to Budapest for her birthday. WW started laying staff off towards the end of the year.
WW went into liquidation and hence I was made redundant. I became self-employed and started freelancing for many ex-WW clients. Went to the south of France with Lettice’s family – first time I’d ever seen the Mediterranean.
I spent the first part of the year working on a site for the BBC. Towards the end of the year I started doing contract work via an agency which meant that I got a large refund from the tax man, eventually. I went on a falconry day and flew a Harris Hawk. I asked Lettice to marry me.
I started this blog and spent several months working for the Home Office.
I gave up freelancing and started work at Visit London. I started cross posting this blog to LiveJournal and joined LibraryThing and Last.FM. I moved house to larger flat, ten minutes down the road from the old one, and Lettice moved in. We got married and went on honeymoon in Canada. 🙂
I learnt XSLT. 🙁 Lettice also started to work at VL. I joined Flickr
Relaunched visitlondon.com with a new CMS, clocking up a stupid number of days off in lieu in the process. I did jury duty. I joined Facebook. We went to Dublin and Amsterdam.
We went to Venice. I learnt JSP and jQuery. I joined Twitter
We went to Barcelona and tried to buy a house. I grew a moustache for charity.
