For those that are interested in what I would suggest as a replacement for Meetup.com, there is a Yahoo group for UK Bloggers. You can find out more about it here http://groups.yahoo.com/group/ukbloggers-social/ , while the traffic is very light at the moment, I plan to use it to set up some London based meetings.
I spent the day in the company of two of the nicest people I know Gary Turner and Suw Charman. Food, coffee and excellent conversation were the order of the day. Gary is incredibly creative, and five minutes with him makes me want to steal his ideas and set up a dot.com. Meanwhile Suw’s career motivates me purely by making me jealous of her skill and success at writing.
The council have given me the address of the flat they want to move me to. They haven’t gotten the keys yet (I think they are cleaning out the remains of the previous occupant) but a quick look on the outside doesn’t fill me with much hope for the size of the inside. Still it is in a quiet area, although quite a way from the nearest tube. When I get the keys and have a look around I’ll let you know what I think.
Back to work tomorrow (Wave if you see me sitting around Stratford), so possibly some ambulance stories…
