Lee, Lee, Lee… haha

For starters, why do you have a 190KB sprite loading? Surely you aren’t using ALL of those icons???

You are loading jQuery three (yes, THREE!) times, each one is around 55KB
1. leehughes.us1.list-manage.com … om/js/jquery-1.2.6.min.js
2. jqueryjs.googlecode.com … files/jquery-1.3.2.min.js
3. http://www.leehughes.co.uk … s/js/jquery/jquery.js?…

You have a total of 6 different CSS files loading.

You have 24 different javascript files loading. All in all you’re loading almost 400KB of javascript files… you should be aiming for around 70KB on a heavy javascript site in my opinion.

Moving your JS into your footer probably isn’t the answer here…
