It was my husbands birthday at the weekend and he decided that he would like to have a “day out in London” . . . .
To be honest when he suggested it (via email from work just 3 days beforehand) my first reaction was a bit negative . . . .
. . . .Recollection of a cold windy day . . . .wandering around London . . . lots of walking on unfamiliar streets . . . .
. . . trusting a man who has a much better sense of direction than me. . . but getting a bit fed up none the less.
. . . and that was our last trip – a weekend away about 11 years ago, during March 2005. . . . . pre-kids. . . but not really London stress free.
Maybe we could do better this time . . . .
SO you finally realised that you need to get a graphic designer to produce your branding, logo, website, business cards . . . . . .
. . . . Hurrah!, says the designer.
and you feel a huge weight fall from your shoulders as you realise that you can get on with working “in” your business . . .

I had a lovely conversation on Monday with a copywriter friend, which led to an bit of an eye opening revelation about responsive websites.
In fact we got on so well, and our business models are so similar that I think we will soon be working together to be able to offer better services to each of our respective clients.
Gayle Edwards is a copywriter based in Lichfield and during our meeting we talked about her own website and why she is not that keen on it.
I had a look when I got home and it’s very nice.
In fact the only immediate thing that I noticed is that it is not a responsive website.
When I said this to her, I was quite surprised when she responded telling me that to be honest she did not know what a responsive website was. . .
So there was the eye opener . . . . a kind of reminder really too – for me – to not assume that everyone is in the know about everything.
But if you have an online presence then it really ought to include a responsive website . . . .
so what is it?
I hope you had a great time . . . Christmas Rules in our house . . . and this year was no exception.
I just had a quick read of my first blog for 2015, and I am pleased to say that this Christmas has been as successful than the last one. . . .

the childhood appreciation stakes have definitely remained strong, maybe as they get older my boys understand how much things cost. . . .
