We always have plenty to say, plenty going on and plenty of nonsense.  Sometimes the drivel is worth a share, but always worth a read.

Step-tember

Gone is the hope of an Indian summer for September, instead we’re greeted by grey clouds, drizzly rain and a need for a coat! It’s even scary how dark the mornings are getting already. But as depressing as the speed this year is passing at or the weather, we must get up and get going. […]

Back to School

With British Summers usually lasting as long as a carton of milk out of a fridge, we’re pretty much all smiles here with the recent hot and sunny bank holiday weekend, and generally ok weather!  August has been a very busy month which has seen us work from either end of the spectrum with some […]

D’you lie?

How did we arrive in July, and start the descent into 2018 so quickly?  It seems only last week we’re were celebrating the start of 2017 and it being a year to start new things.  A year to achieve great things.  But that’s life right, time slips by so fast and things get pushed back […]

Summer School

So half way into 2017 and we can’t believe where the year has gone!  Well, actually we can – we have done so much and there is lots to be proud of.  However with all things there is rough with the smooth, and whist the LK train gathers speed we have also hit our first […]

Mayday Mayday

This is the Good ship Lillian, and we’re in trouble. We’re taking on water due to the amount of work we’re taking on – but alas don’t panic, we’re under great supervision, and are working smarter and keeping the flood at bay. May was definitely a great month for us, we’ve seen a huge increase […]

April Fuels

Where is 2017 going?  We cannot believe we’re fast approaching the half way mark of this year, it feels like only last week we were coming back after Christmas.  But when we look back we can see just how much ground we have covered. This April has been a tough slog with some bigger projects […]

Marching on

So we’re 6 months into our LK journey now and we’re beaming with pride but, more importantly, we’re having fun.  We’re thankful for the continued support and recommendations which help keep us busy and we’re thankful to Nespresso for fuelling our creativity. Alexa continues to play Enya, instead of Eminem, and we have finally worked […]

www (World Wide Work)

Even though we laugh and jest at Dave jetting off and working abroad in the beautiful country of Australia, it wasn’t a knee jerk reaction when he was invited back to Oz to just jump on a plane and leave everything behind. There were several factors to consider: Our UK based clients and how we […]

January Sails

When planning ahead we tend to try and forecast workflow and new business based on experience and previous trends, and this year was exactly the same. We thought we’d have plenty of time in January to complete some outstanding works, get the office completely decorated and then work on some fun stuff for us to utilise over the course of the year. But this January […]

Running to stand still

When we started out with Lillian Kelly as a brand and a journey we had high hopes and big dreams.  But we were realistic in planning, erring on the side of caution with goals and being modest with our objectives.  But those have all been shelved and replaced with a business plan on steroids!  We’re working […]

Remember, Remember…

Fireworks outside.  Fireworks inside.  November was definitely a busy month, but one to remember! We completed the third phase of our project to redesign the website for TheBestOf.co.uk and we’re now tackling the last few extras before our mid December deadline, we increased our clientele down under with yet another site for our Australian friends […]

Halloween has passed, the frighteners were out in numbers last night hunting for tricks and treats, and we were in high spirits too! We have been providing treats to all our clients all month with the great work we have been doing, and tricks on each other with Emma demanding embarrassing selfies and taking pictures […]

September Reign

So it has been one month since we officially launched our new website and with that began our journey – and what a month it has been. Nabil finished his Master’s course, Dave gained more grey hairs and Emma’s sense of humour crawled further into the gutter.  But that’s not all!  We have also had […]
