Jaded? Moi?

Last night we dragged our broken, hung-over bodies to a posh hotel for the Third Sector Awards. After three hundred unbroken hours of categories that I really didn’t understand, we were presented with a ‘High Commendation’ for our WWF tiger campaign.

Luckily, WWF also bagged best website (with no help from us whatsoever) and made the whole event worthwhile.

Must sleep now.


You’re going to need a bigger boat…

Last year, we celebrated our first birthday on board The Lapwing. It was great, so we did it again for our second…

And Richard hugged a surprisingly accommodating Sinitta as he staggered out of the long bar…

Now we are two…

For someone who makes a living writing stuff and never knows when to shut up, I’m at a bit of a loss to know what to say today.

I could do the whole ‘Back when we started in Tim’s spare bedroom we never thought…’ kind of thing. But it just sounds lame. So instead, I’m going to adopt my two of my favourite strategies – delegation and procrastination. I’ll ask everyone in the company for their favourite moment of the last year and post them tomorrow along with a picture of us all.

In the meantime, though, everyone here would like to thank the wonderful organisations who’ve trusted us to generate the love and the money they need to change the world. And Tim and I would like to thank the wonderful people – both inside Open and out – who have helped us do it. You know who you are.
