Important Announcement

9 December, 2009

As of today, the Big Yellow Taxi is closed for business. After  three and a half years and over half a million unique visits, it’s time to move on.

I have moved onto a new site under my own name. Those of you who wish to follow me can find me by clicking the image below.

Those of you who don’t, it’s been nice to have your company!

Sheffield at Christmas

8 December, 2009

I love this time of year when the days are shorter and all the Christmas lights are on when you leave work. I just happened to have my camera on me tonight as I was passing by the town hall in the centre of Sheffield on my way to catch the tram. I love the way the wheel towers over the tree. I also love this time of year when I can legitimately ask a total stranger if I can have some of his warm nuts…there’s nothing better than a bag of warm chestnuts to nibble on the way home!

Update on the job…

8 December, 2009

I’ve decided for various reasons not to take the job. I’ve explained why to my boss who has been very understanding if not very disappointed.

Moving too fast…

24 November, 2009

I’ve been in my new job for less than a month and now, someone wants to spoil it! It’s ridiculous, I’ve just settled into my desk, I have my own mug and everything and now the Regional Director wants me to leave.

Ok, it’s not as dramatic as that, actually he wants me to apply for a senior management role instead. He says I’m perfect as I have the right personality and the right experience to make the role my own. It’s a new role that’s been created due to a restructure and he says he wants me for it. The down side is that there will be some travelling involved.

What do I do?

Comfort Food

18 November, 2009

As it’s cold, wet, windy and miserable today, I need something filling and warm inside me.

This ticks all the boxes!

New Moon

Just who do you think the demographic is that these posters for the movie New Moon are aimed at!


Death of a friend

18 November, 2009

As predicted my pc at home has well and truly died. The one saving grace is that the repair man has been able to salvage all of my data from the hard drive so I haven’t lost any photos, music or personal files.

My big dilemma now is what do I buy next? Do I buy another PC or do I buy a Mac?

I know that each has it’s own set of benefits and drawbacks, I just have to weigh up which is going to be better for me!
