Thoughts from January 2008

how many people can you fit in the post room?


To celebrate Meera's birthday, we tried to see how many people we could fit into the post room.


It's a small place so it soon filled up.


We finally got 35 people in there, including Meera herself, who is being held aloft by the crowd n the picture below.


Next year we're going to try it with the ladies' toilets.

monday makes you get it wrong


Today has been tough for our Ben. Not only is it the day after Sunday, when people feel tired and confused, it's also the day when he put odd shoes on before he left the house. He assures us that it's not a fashion thing; it's a cock up. Poor Ben.

our felicity's on the telly


Please say hello to Felicity. Felicity is one of our product developers here which means she is responsible for coming up with new recipe ideas and then making sure they taste just right.

As the creator of our brand new blackberries, raspberries and boysenberries recipe, we thought it only fair that Felicity star in our other new telly ad.

In anticipation of all the fan mail she’ll be receiving, here’s a few more facts about our Fliss:

  • She likes baking (her speciality is a coconut macaroon)
  • She does a good cross stitch
  • She is a member of the Rabbit Welfare Association and has two of her own rabbits called Pistachio and David. You must pronounce David as 'Davv-id' or he will give you the cold shoulder.

  • Not one to let fame go to her head, she’s already back in the kitchen working on her new creation. All she will divulge at this point is that it is 'very fruity'. Professional to the end, that girl.

Fancy writing something funny to go on the bottom of our bottles?
