My Absence

We’ll meet again, don’t know where, don’t know when, but I know we’ll meet again….

Yes, enough of wartime classics. My absence from this site was longer than I had expected and much longer than is reasonable 🙁

Basically, what happened was after posting that information about SEO, I received a phonecall from a mate who was desperate for some help with his business: giant inflatables.

He was due to go up to Edinuburgh, Scotland the next day to do a corporate event for Standard Life, an investment bank that is de-mutualising and being listed on the stock exchange.

SIDENOTE: Being a Standard Life account holder and knowing the dismal performances from them recently in terms of interest, I’m amazed that they’ll ever find any more investors willing to put money into a financial institution that could be financially outwitted by my own dear grandmother. But that’s another story…

So, a corporate gig. The assignment? Blow up 5000 little balloons with helium and release them from the top of Edinburgh castle.

Edinburgh was beautiful, I didn’t get much sleep and the weather was fantastic yada yada yada…

When I got back to my parents house, it turns out it was my fathers birthday (who knew? I obviously need this), so I had to stay up there another day (4 days without internet access…smokers will empathize with me here) for the fun and festivities that only family group events can bring. ie. it was dull, boring and everyone wished that they were somewhere else.

So the following day I was due to go back down to London. But, alas, my matey phones me up again because he needs a hand with another job: an inflatable bungee run in an outdoor mall. How could I say no?

We’ll now fast-forward 2 more days (during which time I also became an impromptu assistant DJ at a wedding disco), and still no internet access. Does anyone else feel my pain here? These guys might

When I finally got back to London, there was so much to sort out; my business partner hadn’t even bothered to answer any support tickets and my webmaster had done so much while I was away that I had to catch up on (damn, he’s a trooper!)

I meant to post on the blog, but before I knew it, it would be midnight. Not to mention that the world cup was (now that England are out of the world cup, it ceases to exist as far as I am concerned!) on.

Blah-de-blah-de-dar, so this brings us up to today. Yeah, I know I skipped forward a couple of weeks. But think of it as a TV series (hell, if Bart Simpson can be aged 10 for the last 16 years, I can skip weeks without mentioning them….).

OK, so I know that I have a lot of catching up to do on this blog. Starting with the promise on my last post to explain how I got to number 1 (ish) spots on all the search engines.

Welcome back :~)
