Did I speak too soon…? Probably…

Thank you for all the concern/messages/love last week when there was no blog post! Last week I really wasn’t feeling well and I was also very tired from the previous week, so I did the sensible thing and actually went home for a couple of days to recuperate. Not really feeling much more rested, I… Continue reading Did I speak too soon…? Probably…

We have an app. On a phone. And working. Omg.

Oh hey 👋 Jas and I agreed in our Friday reflection session that this week has been the first week we have both felt stressed doing Luna. Yes, we’ve been working hard since October on this - all day, most evenings and to be honest, most weekends in one way or another but this week,… Continue reading We have an app. On a phone.

When will I ever talk about anything other than building an app…

…not just yet. Another week goes by, another week spent watching YouTube, learning how to build a no-code app. My week peaked on Friday when I received an email from Adalo (the platform I am using to build the app) congratulating me on unlocking the next level of member status because, I quote, “we see… Continue reading When will I ever talk about anything other than building an app…

Luna balloons and cupcakes for our first event…

Ok so now my head is a little confused; 7:30pm on a Sunday? Monday night? As a creature of habit, this Monday evening blog writing is testing me no end, however, after a day of filming yesterday and returning to my flat at 8:30pm, writing the blog was the last thing on my mind. On… Continue reading Luna balloons and cupcakes for our first event…

Just call me Jeff…

…Bezos, that is. I feel like my last week is how Bezos must have first felt when he started Amazon from his garage; coding away, building his website to buy and sell his books. My whole week has basically been focused on building this “no-code” version of the app. If only this version 0.1 of… Continue reading Just call me Jeff…

Back into the swing of things…

Welcome back to London! It’s funny to think I started the week up in Yorkshire and I’m finishing it down in London. Not unusual, I know. It just feels like this week has lasted forever! I keep seeing that meme about how long January is, but since our Luna planning day on Wednesday, I have… Continue reading Back into the swing of things…

Happy New Year: 2022, we’re ready for you

Welcome, 2022! After a short hiatus of blog writing for various reasons; the C-word being the main factor… I am back and looking forward to my second full year of writing this blog. Christmas, which now seems like an age ago already, was lovely although I have been recovering from a bout of Covid-19. In… Continue reading Happy New Year: 2022, we’re ready for you

Moving house again?! And pretending I’m Steve Jobs…

Where has this week gone?! Each week just keeps flying by and this one is no exception. I’ve had a lovely long weekend over these past few days, and as much as I love working on Luna, it was fun to have Friday off and be a tourist in this city. Tuesday was a big… Continue reading Moving house again?! And pretending I’m Steve Jobs…

A new found respect for television presenters and a sick-inducing track session…

And action! The focus for this week at Luna HQ has been technology and content. Two very critical elements of our business and two things I know next to nothing about…! We have been deep in customer discovery and understanding our users for the past few months, that now we are really ready to actually… Continue reading A new found respect for television presenters and a sick-inducing track session…

“And what do you do…?” “Me, I’m the Secretary of State for Education”….oh, great!

Doncaster 10km Well what a week it has been. I’m writing this again from Yorkshire (I do seem to spend a lot of weekends up in Yorkshire for one reason or another) as this weekend I found myself back racing a 10km! I haven’t run a 10km (race) in a few years. I always thought… Continue reading “And what do you do…?” “Me, I’m the Secretary of State for Education”….oh, great!
