Birthday Wknd E-mail

I've had a lovely wknd with Rach.
Chilled in on Friday evening, Saturday afternoon went to see Narnia and did some shopping. Picked out a lovely wee present for Dawn and some clothes for me.

Before meeting up with Alan, Lana, Paul & Conrad at Thai Square Aldwych, lovely meal and great company. The pyramid desert looked great but I just had ice cream. Alan & Lana headed home afterwards and the rest of us went back to W14 for rum.

Sunday, up early to mass was not easy after late drinking session. But we made it and it was a nice service as usual at Hammersmith 9am. I can't remember my last birthday I was at mass.

Home to wrap the aforementioned wee present, grab some brekkie and then out onto the road to head over to Tala, George & little Dawn for Sunday dinner. Took longer than we anticapated driving south of the river and back across at Blackwall tunnel but we got to Beckton safely and had an amazing day with the Kizilis',Dawn is almost 2 and very cute, Sunday roast Greek style was wonderful and the whole day was. Though the drive back was less so and we missed a turn and went across Tower Bridge but got onto the road we needed and home.

Wind down with X Factor final and muffins Rach made to finish off a lovely wknd.

Work Tragedy - Jaamit RIP E-mail

Words can't really describe anything as terrible as what happened last week.
On Friday morning the search team were called to an urgent meeting, purpose unknown, we were apprehensive but what we learned was infinitely worse.

We were told that our colleague and friend, Jaamit Durrani, had died the previous night at Tottenham Court Road. My thoughts and prayers are with his wife and family, but words cannot do justice to this incredibly gifted bright young SEO guru. It is a testament of his impact on the SEO community the outpouring of emotion that has occurred on twitter since our boss broke the news of Jaamit's death. He was a character in the office and he is deeply missed. We are all in shock still from what happened. His tragic and unnecessary death is still hard to take.

We have learned since, that three other people died on the underground that day, it is not acceptable that the tube network can continue to be so dangerous in a city of this scale and wealth. Something must be done to ensure no family has to lose someone like this again.

In September, I had to part company with TBG. It was a very disappointing that this happened, but I threw myself into the job hunt. I got in touch with several recruitment agencies that had contacted me through LinkedIn or from my previous job hunt, and there was a good number of opportunities around London in search.

Less than 150 days to go now to our big day. There's still several things left to sort or finalise but a large part of the planning is sorted, thanks to Rachel.

And I will hopefully have a new site up soon dedicated to the two of us, where we can put photos we have taken and for the next 5 months provide a portal to planning.
