Photos - 2003

A lot has happened in 2003. I moved to London on the 16th January and started looking for work. I eventually got a job in Exeter and started mid March. I've visited several places around the UK and met lots of new people. In October I moved to Livingston to start working at Sky. I travelled back to Exeter a couple of times and finished the year with a big let down when the cancelled the huge Hogmanay celebration in the middle of Edinburgh due to strong winds and bad weather.
