2020

Life got weird because of COVID, work increased to manic levels and blogging decreased. After 16 years on Texpattern, moved over to Statamic.

2017

Work was thin on the ground - worst working year since going freelance.

2012

Will forever remember this as the year that mum died. Also published the Icon Handbook, and was glad she got to see it.
