Newsletter 7: Well, that was a year to remember!

COMPRESS.dsl, Well, that was a year to remember!, We shan’t be forgetting 2020 in a hurry, it’s time to sail off into the sunset, An owl looking very confused with wide opened eyes

Hellooooo there, it’s time to sail off into the sunset!

2020 was, without a doubt, the strangest, hardest and most eventful year I have ever experienced.

Thanks to our clients – old and new – COMPRESS.dsl has weathered the tsunami with relative ease. None of us can tell what 2021 will bring, but in the words of Louisa May Alcott,

I am not afraid of storms, for I am learning how to sail my ship.

I’d like to express my profound gratitude not just to our clients, but also to our little group of freelancers, who never turned their nose up at a smaller-than-usual budget, never argued with a tighter-than-usual deadline, and who helped us feel that we were not alone in the tempest.

To our team here at COMPRESS.dsl, Lesley, Hellen and Gloria, who are the backbone of this little operation, and who between them pulled more rabbits out of hats than David Copperfield – thank you. And WoOF3 as well, of course, who ate the rabbits.


Holiday entertainment

I leave you for the year with two links – both of them educational, but in rather different ways.

1.   Brilliant courses that are free to enjoy

Compress.dsl, Newsletter 7: Well, that was a year to remember! Very wise looking with little reading glasses, looking very educated, it’s time to sail off into the sunset        

2.   Blackadder classics to wind down the year that was.

Setting sail for 2021

We are battening down the hatches on 18 December, and shall be back at the helm of our ship on Monday 4 January – and available intermittently before then by email if required.

May you all have a damn good holiday.
