Some of the lovely folks I work with in the Creative department are putting together a newspaper. It turns out it’s quite easy to do with a tiny bit of design knowhow and a good idea. There’s a company called Newspaper Club who will print your paper from as little as five copies and they look pretty special.
Following on from yesterday’s #oneaday post about my day off, here are the photos I took of my day off’s adventures. I’ve never been into my photography and none of this is meant to be particularly aesthetically pleasing, I just thought it made a nice change from words (as much as I do love them).

I had today off work as a holiday day. As luck would have it, I seem to have contracted some hideous cold/sore throat type thing and so spent much of the morning lying in bed.

Plus, it means I get to bake a cake when I get home from the gym.

I just got this summary emailed to me by wordpress, so I thought it’d be good to share it with anyone reading and then do a comparison this time next year when I’ve got stats that are much more juicy. I’m now off on a new-year cleaning session followed by a massive workout. Then tonight I’m going to curl up with Will Self and Simon Pegg and geek-out in bed with their books. Lush.
Right, here comes the science, concentrate…
