How often is too often to bug a company MD about a job?

MD said he would talk to me about a graduate position opening up this year. Haven't heard anything yet and I do not want to let this one slip through my fingers. How communicative should I be, and by what means?

Before Christmas I heard about a graduate job coming up in my field, in the town I'm doing my degree in. Not only is it exactly the work I want to do, it's also in a town I've come to like a lot, staying here would be awesome. So I contacted them, the MD called me back (it's a small outfit) and asked me to send him my CV and that we could talk about it sometime over a coffee.
So I sent it, then things got busy and Christmas came and went. I left a message with the secretary a couple of weeks ago saying I was back in town and would the MD like to meet up for that coffee. Obviously since I'm asking this I haven't heard anything back.
