Back to work
… although as it’s September it feels a little like going back to school after the summer holidays.
Important things out the way first, the new addition to our team at home, Kirsty, was born a little later than expected, but all was good and she’s now happily joining her brother at nursery 2 days a week while I get back in to the world of work.
I’ve been set the slightly daunting task of getting us new business. Not something I’ve ever done before but this is the joy of working for yourselves getting a chance to get your hands dirty at different tasks. I’ve accepted the challenge and will be blogging, emailing and phoning up a storm over the next few months.
I missed the office move as I was on maternity leave so I feel like it’s a completly fresh start. The Electric Works building is brilliant, its a great environment to be working in. Plus we have quite a view from our office, I love Sheffield, ask anyone who knows me and they’ll tell you how I’m constantly evangelising the city’s many amazing qualities, but everyday I come in here it strengthens those feelings. I can confirm the slide in the entrance is awesome, very fast, it makes me cackle all the way down, not great in such an echoey space.
The rest of Team Cooper are very busy working on various client projects and trying to find time to finish our own work, our ‘Beasite Burger’ game (2nd version) is so very nearly finished it’s painful to leave it while we’re so busy. Hopefully I’ll be letting you know in the next few months that it’s live and ready to play. We hope to maintain this level of working so that we can finally take on another developer and continue our growth.
