Top 16 Happenings of 2009

As 2009 draws to a close it is time to take stock of the past 365 days and look back at the year. I’ve really enjoyed the last year, with lots of trips away, days out and fun along the way. Here are some of the things I really enjoyed from 2009….. (not much happened in Jan / Feb apart from it being cold)

Christmas 2009

Christmas 2009 has been a great deal of fun so far. It took quite a bit of organising but I think it all came off really well, and I have had a great time. There was of course the build up of getting presents for everyone, as well as making sure the guys at Bronco were treated too.

Christmas started early at Bronco with USB stick presents, selection boxes with their pay slips and Christmas bonuses, lots of tins of chocolate biscuits and mince pies to share, crackers and a Christmas Party at Ripley Castle.

Happy Christmas to you all

Just a quick post to wish you all a very Merry Christmas. Santa came last night and left the kids lots of presents including blue Nike Mercurial astro trainers for Miles and the Lego Ramses Pyramid for Ethan, that they have both been asking for.

I got some amazing presents from Dave, so a big thank you to him … I must have been very good throughout the year. I knew I was getting a new laptop as I helped ensure it got delivered in time, but I wasn’t allowed to see it until this morning when I unwrapped it, and it is gorgeous

Social Media Listening

This is a term that I have come across today that seems to be appearing more and more often and is being used in conjuction with Online Reputation Management. I came across it today when I was intrigued why PR Week had removed an article that had an interview with Robin Grant from We Are Social who was saying that it was “good news” for his company that there had been the crisis with Eurostar, who is one of their clients.

VAT Rate Increase – Jan 1st 2010

For starters .. Whoever decided to bring the VAT increase in on the 1st January, New Years Day of all days? Do they not realise that most of the population will be recovering from the festivities of the night before and when the clock strikes midnight the last thing you want to be thinking about is whether your online store is charging the right VAT rate.
