Bye, Kim!

28th June 2008 by Denise

You know that Ready Made had a shiny new facelift recently? You can browse and search packs, see the whole content of a pack in all it’s colourful glory, add images of pack-thumbnails to your own site, and add special tags to your photos of packs you’ve bought…

Well, it wasn’t just that the ‘front end’ (what you can see) that changed. A whole bunch of stuff at the ‘back end’ changed too. And there’s more planned – and all of it is rockin’. While the team worked together to make it all happen, the planning, thinking, occasional yelling, frequent cajoling (with cake), and general project management was done by Kim.

Ready with a smile, frequently patient-in-the-face-of-’arrrgh!’, Kim.

(Thank you to Matt Patterson for the photo)

The bad news is that she’s legged it off to new pastures. The good news is that we know where they are, and it’s not far! Cutting her teeth on one new project (MOO) has left her itching to get started on another, so she’s heading off to work on exciting things elsewhere. (And with friends of ours too! Although we’ll give them a *very* stern talking to next time we see them.)

As a little tribute to Kim, photos of her leaving do…
Mike was really upset she was leaving, but just about managed to fight back those tears:

Joy and Nicky took to drugs, in a bid to get them through…

While Alex, took to drink

Gordon wore shades to hide his true feelings (that and he was being helicoptered out later, clearly.)

Other people like Mex preferred to remember Kim with a smile. (And more alcohol – but lets not mention that as it’s almost out of shot).

And here’s the lovely lady herself, with a wee gift from the MOO Crew.

Farewell Kim! You will be missed! Come back and visit soon. (You can bring some apple cake with you if you like… no pressure. Just, you know, for old times sake :)

Incidentally, one person missing from the photos is the never-normally-camera shy, Iain. We’re not sure what he’s been up to, but three things we do know are:
1) He’s recently got a new bike
2) A fire caused chaos at music festival, Glastonbury on Thursday
3) We found this photo:

Not drawing any conclusions or anything… just sayin’
