New Garden

About a month ago we spent the weekend redoing my garden. It was my first step into gardening but with the help of a few friends we achieved a lot!

The garden before with the bike shed, smaller patio and side plants.

Laura takes a break from making tea.

Many thanks for everyone that helped including Wayne, Benjie and Brantford.

Lake Vyrnwy

Last weekend I cycled around Lake Vyrnwy in Wales for the Severn Hospice, the 11 mile cycle took around two hours at a leisurely pace, here are some of the photos I took on the way round:

The dam forms one edge of the lake.

Boating is a popular pastime.

Water from the lake supplies homes all over the West Midlands.

The first signs of spring were starting to show.

As it started raining this faint rainbow appeared.

You can just about see the whole rainbow in this shot.

The mist started to get heavier at this point.

I stayed with the runners - for support obviously.

The tower's almost Gothic look in the creepy mist.

Sunset

I took these photos whilst the sun was setting last week at about 6:30pm (before the clocks changed). The first one I've run through Photomatix to enhance some of the colours.

 

 

Shrewsbury Dragon Boat Race

Today I took part in the Shrewsbury Dragon Boat Race to help raise money for Shrewsbury Hospice. Our team made up of 17 people from our office (The Pump House), the majority representing Marches Energy Agency, I represented Information Solutions (and obviously world famous ImAFish).

Happy Seventh Birthday ImAFish

June 5th 2008 - Shrewsbury based world famous ImAFish celebrates its seventh birthday today. The site's had a bumper year with over 250,000 visits with one of its features hitting the front page of Digg.com.

Site founder Pete White said "It's been the best year ever for ImAFish with such a huge number of visits and increasing revenue. It is a testament to the brand that ImAFish has survived for seven years and I can imagine it will be around for seven more. Our move to Drupal at the beginning of the year and our updated design have been a great move. We have recently launched two new sites to go along with ImAFish and have high hopes for both."

Some of the highlights of the year include:

Ei42.com - A Revolution In Cash Back?

Make Hundreds of Pounds Through Online Bingo

How To Handle The Jerk Next To You On An Airplane

Getting Dugg and Surviving - 70,000+ Hits in One Week

New House and Office

In the past week I've moved office and moved house! I still have no Internet at home so I'm using my phone.

Last Thursday we moved office to The Pump House, an environmentally friendly building that gives us great new facilities and loads more space. The three of us had been crampt up in our old office for almost two years which means we can look to expand in the coming months.

Pump House

 

On Friday I brought my first house with my lovely girl friend Laura, I've spent since then moving stuff in and sorting it all out. It's a slow process but we are finally getting there.

The office and house are only ten minutes walk apart meaning I can sleep in till 8:30 each morning and still get to work on time.

More coming soon once Plusnet activate my broadband.
