This year we’ve been blessed with an unusually high number of good weather days – the sun has been working in overdrive to give us way more than the standard UK quota of 2 sunny days per year!
We decided to take full advantage of this by holding a BBQ at Greg’s house. A particularly mild and pleasant Monday was settled on and we made our way there in the afternoon. We started with a couple of rounds of telestrations – see if you can guess what is represented in Graeme’s picture below…
Lucy then took on the role of chef and cooked us up some delicious burgers, sausages, wings, halloumi and kebabs, plus Alice made some delicious piña coladas! Once we were all fed and watered we moved inside for some Singstar – classic hits enjoyed included Meatloaf’s “I’d Do Anything for Love (But I Won’t Do That)” and Anastacia’s “Left Outside Alone”.
We then moved on to the cardboard box game; players have to pick up an ever shrinking cereal box using only their mouth, while only touching the ground with their feet. Lucy and both Lauren’s managed to make it to the final round which involved picking up just a flat piece of card. The surprising flexibility of some office members made us suspect some people may have been practising over the weekend!
Lastly we enjoyed a game of sardines (we are grown ups, we swear!). We turned the lights off and shut the curtains, and one person went off to hide. The others then searched one by one and joined them in their hiding place. Lauren L found a particularly clever hiding place planking across the dining chairs under the table, while Graeme and Kim managed to hide undiscovered in Greg’s wardrobe for at least 10 minutes!
This June was a special month at Inertia – it marked one year since Gerard, our office bearded dragon came to join us!
This meant he got a shiny new UV lamp for his vivarium, and we thought it was a perfect time to give you a lizard update.
Gerard has grown quite considerably since we first brought him to his new home! Much like having a child, you don’t seem to notice him growing when you see him every day, but we’ve kept a growth chart for him (when he’ll permit us to measure him) and his tail is now almost as long as he was when we first got him!
Gerard definitely seems to have enjoyed his first year with us! He still loves his locusts but his favourite veggies are now the leafy ones – rocket and watercress! He’s currently going through his second shed with us, and recently received a new addition to his viv – a hidey cave! After a week or so of looking at the cave suspiciously, followed by a couple more of climbing on top of it (climbing is one of his favourite pastimes!) he finally decided to venture inside, and now regularly curls up for a nap when he gets exhausted from the daily rigours of lizarding.
The year has also offered opportunities to practice his jumping skills, and we’ve had a few near misses around the office! Luckily one of us has always managed to catch him before he could fall any great height. We’ve also managed to (mostly) avoid any stray locusts…
We’ve all grown quite attached to our smallest colleague, and he’s proven to be a unique and surprisingly endearing office pet! Here’s to another year (and many more) of beardie companionship!

One sunny day in May, we decided that it was the perfect day to take a well earned break from our recent hard work (with the release of Jackpot Bingo and big updates to Cross-Stitch World) and take a trip to the beach!
Hunstanton (or Sunny Hunny as it’s known locally) is the closest beach to our office in Ely, so we took a drive and arrived just in time for lunch!
First off, we enjoyed some fish and chips while successfully thwarting several attempts of chip theft by a menacing gang of seagulls.
We then headed to an arcade, where we changed up our coins for 2ps and had a go at winning some prizes! No-one managed to hit the jackpot this time, but we did collect a fair few tokens to exchange for treats.
Next stop was a sweet shop where we stocked up on rock, candy and a marshmallow man on a stick for Lucy! This was followed by a pleasant stroll along the front back to the beach at Old Hunstanton, where we explored the sand, although no one was quite brave enough (or appropriately dressed!) to take a proper paddle. Alice and Lauren did explore some fairly deep puddles though!
After that it was time to head back to the office to finish off the day and shake the sand out of our shoes. It was a fun excursion, which we will repeat in the future – Graeme who was on his annual leave has made us promise to make sure he’s in the next time we go!
