During The Month Of June I...

Saw my eldest sister Claire marry Matt on a fantastically bright sunny day in Burnham. I got to introduce the first dance and am so proud to see my sister find her soul mate at last. In return I gain a new brother-in-law which gives me someone to play football in the garden with. Everyone's a winner.

Fell in love with Chicago, Illinois. It is a really stylish weekend city and one that I’d heartily recommend. When we weren’t eating our body weight in food, Nina and I were stretching in the 7th innings at Wrigley Field, taking a ride to the top of the Sears Tower and giggling at the silly reflections of the Bean. I also got to fulfill a boyhood fantasy and stand staring at the Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte, by Georges Seurat like Cameron Fry in Ferris Bueller’s Day Off.

Took on an increasing amount of work at vzaar HQ. As COO, I’m now tasked with growing the business whilst trying to also run the business. It is a fascinating, challenging and fun time. I’m learning loads about balance, priorities and determination.

Was finally able to see Bean 1.0 our unborn child on the big screen baby scanner! Yes, I’m becoming a Dad in around 6 months time and at last I can start to share the most amazing of secrets. Of course there is a long way to go, lots of names to be deliberate over, a car to upgrade and a life to reassess, but I honestly wish it was January 2009 already.
