I'm back

Well kids, I've not blogged for a while, but I'm back!

I've been really busy at work, working on sites for Cable and Wireless, D-Link and Cadbury's. Why not take a look at what I've been helping with over 2007.

So a quick catch up, since I last blogged, I've been up to all sorts...

...In December, I spent a week in Geneva with Nicole and Sam, it was very cold and snowy, but I got plenty of cuddles from Nicole and she even let me wear her (ear) muff....s. The snow got me in the mood for Christmas, so I spent some time drinking with my new buddy Rudolph, then we went ice skating, although I was pretty bad at that, so spent most of the day on my bum :(

Some pictures below, more on my photostream

I spent Christmas with Mat in Derby, and Son of Zippy spent his up near Stoke with Claire, where he ate so much he nearly burst!

Son of Zippy before he popped!Claire bought Son of Zippy some lovely chocolate coins, and Mat got me a satsuma and an apple. We bought them nothing in return!

Before all that, Chemistry Digital had it's Christmas Party, and being as I'm not allowed to drink, I volunteered to take lots of photographs, unfortunately that meant I wasn't in any of the photos, perhaps that's why everyone was so keen to let me take them!

So after Christmas, I was sooo tired from all the partying Tony and Sofia offered to take me on holiday to lovely, wet and windy Sweden, the 12th country I've visited with my amazing friends from Chemistry Digital. Sofia is from Sweden so we had a very good guide to the local customs and language...Tjéna, hur är det?

I've been living and working in Nottingham almost a year now, but with all the travelling I'd never had chance to see the local sights, so Steve decided to take me out for the day around this little town.

Being such a great company, Chemistry Digital decided we'd worked so hard in January that they would take us Go-Karting for the evening. After a long trip, and a lot of getting lost on the way to Wymeswold, we got suited up, got our game faces on and crashed into loads of tyres. Except of course for Lee, Karen H, Tony and Mark H on Team 3, who wiped the floor with the rest of us to claim the Chemistry Digital Karting Championship 2008.

So there you have it, as you can see I've been very busy, but I'll be writing loads this year, I promise.

See you soon kids

Norfolk and Keira K

So I've jut got back from Norfolk with my good friend Mat and his wifey Gemma.

We spent a lot of time walking around on the beach and eating and drinking in the masses of pubs around there. I sampled the local real ale, and really liked Nelson's Revenge!

Then we went to Holkham Hall to see the herds deer, and it turned out they were making a film there! I tried my best to get a picture with Keira Knightley, but she said her boyfriend might get jealous. I can understand...

Wedding of the year...

Congratulations to James and Caroline who got married last weekend! I'm so glad I managed to make it, after being "tied-up" elsewhere all week and was very honoured when the Groom decided to promote me to chief usher. Apparently the previous employee hadn't been doing too well!

So a good time was had by all, and I drank far too much champagne, check out the pictures below, or view more on my Flickr photostream

Wear it Pink!

So today was Wear it Pink day for Breast Cancer Research but not wanting to spoil my orangey complexion I stuck to wearing a wonderful pink wig and dying my moustache for the event.

Hopefully we've raised lots of money, pics below...

Palma Jolly with the ChemDig guys

So now I'm free of my captors I'll fill you all in on my happenings before the event. And we shall never talk about my ordeal again.

As you know I went to Palma last week on the work jolly and we had a good time. The hotel was great and I spent a lot of time in the spa, relaxing and working out the knots that web development has given me! The beach was lovely and the sun was shining so much some of the ladies took their tops off! :)

Anyway here's some pics...
