First week in new job!!

Yes! This week has been pretty awesome and jam packed. I started my new job as a Junior Designer at Net Communities. I've already been working on huge household named brands - so exciting!

I've settled in well, with lots of lunches with colleges with pizza for lunch yesterday and beers for the team on Friday's.

I'm featured on their website which you can see here. You can also have a look at the type of work that I do.

First week down, many more to go! I'm so pleased to say I'm part of the team and working for such a great, people focused company in the heart of London.

Thank you for all those who have supported me in landing this position and encouraging me :)

September - November skies

It's been a few weeks since I updated ze blog so I decided I'd put something together for you to look at.

Pretty much every other evening (depending on the weather of course) I take a photograph of the sunsets outside our flat window. I've been able to capture some pretty beautiful skies so I collated them all together for you to see.

Arvo Pärt - London Festival Hall - Orchestra

Last night I had the opportunity to go to a live Orchestra concert at London Festival Hall. My kind friend, Nick was so nice to give me his spare ticket so I went along with him. I've never been a fan of orchestral music but I've never seen an orchestra live, so how could I say that I don't like it, if I've never been?

My mind was quickly changed. I think I've come to the conclusion that I'm not a fan of the brass. It's too harsh for me. The second half was incredible with just the strings and the choir. It was so soothing and beautiful that I could have drifted off into a deep sleep listening to it. It was simply beautiful.

Arvo Pärt is an Estonian composer of classical music and sacred music. Since the late 1970s, Pärt has worked in a minimalist style that employs his self-invented compositional technique, tintinnabuli.

I'd say to anyone that doesn't really Orchestra not to instantly dismiss it. Listen to it live and the experience of the music changes. You can feel the brass in your bones and the strings slowly creeping into your skin with its high notes. It's a whole different experience. Give it a go.
Thanks for a lovely evening out, Nick. Even if I did have too many glasses of red wine!
