Get yourself a very (sunny) merry Xmas (aka: Happy holidays plus a little recap)

So. I guess I first of all owe everyone an apology for going AWOL for more than a month on the blog. Many know I’ve been travelling – and I really needed it. First was Thailand – a truly relaxing holiday


Over these weeks, I still managed to write this guest post (by Olga), and this (by Kate of Clarity Language Solutions). I also wrote a new ITI Bulletin article that will come out in the first issue of  2013 – this marks more than a year of Rainy London on the magazine (thanks everyone!). Also, our next #LdnTweetUp is no. 6 and with an average attendance of 15+, I am more than proud to have started this trend.


Why don’t you come too? Next one is already planned. Find it here.

It was not all pleasure! I did work too – with the help of my beloved poison of choice 🙂


I met new colleagues and finally saw some old names in the flesh for the first time at #ETIM in Malaga and in NYC (photo: courtesy of La Pera; photo: courtesy of Rina Ne’eman).


I got inspired by interesting talks and delighted by gorgeous landscapes (with a temperature ranging from +35 °C to -10 °C in a week!) Photos: New York, Stockholm (#RainyOnTheGo entry in Sweden courtesy of Paul Appleyard)


And as Christmas approaches, here is the new release of our festive little present (by talented designer Fab of Cocorino). I give you… the 2012 Rainy Cards. If you’re lazy about clicking the previous link, here’s a snapshot!


Did you get one? If so, flaunt it in a pic! My new year’s resolutions? Giving you at least a couple of posts to make it up to you. I promise!
