How working for a large 50+ employees UK (as they have offices all over the world too) creative agency is different from working for a small 6 employees communications agency.
Month: January 2010
2009 in Words
It’s one of those memes that force you to think about your year a bit. So here is my year in words. How was yours?
1. What did you do in 2009 that you had never done before?
I saw whales in their natural environment. I biked the Golden Gate bridge.
Both very memorable experiences. And both very recommended too.
Where were we?
I am not the complaining type but saying that my new year started smoothly might be overdoing it a bit. January just isn’t my month. After losing my job in November I just found out that I need to move out of my room.
I am not happy to go as I really enjoyed the view but I didn’t really have a choice. And while I was prepared for a stressful couple of weeks chasing for a new place, things seem to have fallen into place already. (Let’s hope nothing gets in the way now but) I have found a room around the corner of Battersea Park. If I continue walking along the side of the park (even though I am already sure I will spent a lot of time in the park as there is a tea pavillion and a place where they sell ice cream near a lake) I will get to Albert Bridge and if I walk over the bridge, crossing the Thames, I stand in Chelsea. It is a brilliant location indeed with lots of cycling possibilities too.
I will share with two men again, I am used to that now, and I am fine with that, not the least because we’ll have a cleaner. And I just hope that I can stay there for a longer period than my current room. I know that nothing is certain in London, it is the nature of the city, but one can always hope.
I will also be very close to Clapham Junction (good for shopping and train connections) and loads of bus stops so that’s all good.
There is only one thing – I need to pack all my stuff down in boxes again, and I have exactly 16 days to do it.
New Year – Snow – London – IJsselstein – photos
I do think Simon looks a bit like a gentleman with his scarf, black hat and red heart shaped buttons. And he is still standing!
I finally had the time to sort out the photos I took over Christmas, New Year and here back in London.
Statuesque – the beauty of silence
If you missed Statuesque, the brilliant silent short film by Neil Gaiman with Bill Nighy in the lead, please press play now before it’s gone. (It is about 8 minutes in length)
Very Lawrence. Very lovely. Very heart breakingly sweet.
Happy New Year!
Happy New Year to all of you!
