2015 is here, huzzah! Yes, I am aware that it is January 10th already – if I was a good blogger I would have had this post scheduled for 9am January 1st but hey, better late than never, right? 😉 So! First things first, how did I do with last year’s resolutions? 2014 resolutions! Year of code I….kind of did this? Sort of. I did spend some time on Treehouse, but mostly my skills improved through doing. I built nine client sites in 2014, and definitely…Continue Reading “2014 Resolutions & Goals for 2015”

2014 is done – whoo! It was an interesting year for me – my first full year of freelance, our first full year in the house. I made some new friends, lost touch with some old ones and cut some ties that had been weighing me down for a while. I feel like 2014 was the first year where I panicked less and enjoyed more, so that’s pretty awesome. I read 171 books, watched 120 films, completed my colour 365, took two flights and built nine websites….Continue Reading “2014 – A Year in Review”

Oops, I meant to write this in October and just never made the time! Oh well, better late than never, no? Here’s the third quarter of our Colour 365 – orange, red and pink. These colours were pretty fun to do, much more bright and vibrant than the beginning of the year! January – March | April – June July was a fun month that involved a trip to Cornwall and some wonderful weather. It wasn’t hard to find orange things to photograph, which is…Continue Reading “Colour 365 – Quarterly Round Up”

Issue 8. Crikey. When I first had the idea for Télégramme way back when in 2010 I thought it would be easy, in all honesty. Find some photos I liked, put them in a layout: Boom. Magazine. In reality – Télégramme is hard work. The weirder Flickr gets the harder it becomes, too, as 90% of my photos are still sourced from there. But it’s done and I’m still proud of it 🙂 If you like photography I suggest you give it a read (it…Continue Reading “Télégramme Magazine – Issue 8”

It’s been two months (and a few days) since I shaved my head for charity – can you believe that? Time. Flies. I thought people might like to see the progress that it’s making, so here are a few quick shots of it growing! Apologies if we follow each other on Instagram, you’ve already seen these my friends 😉 + 0 Head shave day! It was shaved to a number 1, so it was pretty damn short. In fact, I think my eyebrows were longer than…Continue Reading “#BuzzCutChong – Two Months On”

After I shaved my head, we headed down to Gwdihw (pronounced good-e-hue) for a much needed gin. Gwdihw is Welsh for owl, which is appropriate as they happened to have some furry friends from the local owl sanctuary there and you could pet them. For free. I’ve had “pet a tiny owl” on my Life List ever since seeing this amazing video… so you’d better believe I petted that owl. I’m not sure if you can tell from my very understated expression, but I was a little…Continue Reading “Life List: Pet A Tiny Owl”

I added “learn how to french braid my hair” to my 31 for 31, not really thinking about the fact that I was due to shave my head in August and that my hair probably  wouldn’t be long enough by June 2015 to attempt it. If you’re wondering if I am particularly good at forward planning, I think this is perhaps your answer. Luckily, I realised ahead of time and french braiding, it turns out, is not that difficult to learn. The photo below was my…Continue Reading “Life List / 31 for 31: Learn How to French Braid My Hair”
