Thoughts from September 2011

a big thank you to our knitting Mums

Now that Kat's left innocent, the race is on to see whose parents can raise the highest number of hats for the Big Knit 2011. Charlie's Mum is doing a sterling job as ever, and this year George's Mum has stepped into the running, promoting the Big Knit with her local Age UK and The Spinning Wheel in Clevedon, and even encouraging her customers to join in too. She's shown a cracking bit of entrepreneuralism, running a raffle where everyone who enters 5 hats gets a ticket. Here's the lovely Angela with 350 hats so far.

George's Mum

If you live near Clevedon, North Somerset, you can join in her efforts by taking your hats to the Londis and West End Post Office.

Remember, you've got another 4 weeks to get your hats in to us, so get your knit on.


it's time to do some stuff


It's Monday, a wet front is coming in and that compliment about having caught the sun is a distant memory.

But don't be down hearted.

It's time to stop beating about the bush and try some new and exciting things to show Autumn who's boss.

No more post-sun regrets.


So put down your hobnob.

Pick up the phone.

And book that fire-breathing course in Swansea that you can't stop thinking about.


Much better.

this and that - a week in the life of the creative team

This week has been big. We've heard about a chimp in a hot tub, met a celebrity, experienced a natural phenomenon, been wooed and had a lookalike revelation.

1st up: Dan got Tansy some flowers for her birthday, but, worried this would cause anarchy and jealous rifts in the team, placated us with a rose each. Although a week in creative corner in a latte cup has taken its toll.


Next up a celebrity talking "extra naked". At the 1st Brains for Breakfast Louis Theroux enilightened us with Nietzsche quotes, shocked us with poo-throwing stories, spiced our day up with Chippendale based philosophies and wowed us with a pretty marvelous talk. (All before 10am)


3rd: Dan undid his diet. He ate all this pizza. Alone. No one else had any. At all. Not even one slice. Well except these two, who got in there quick.


All we got was this tiny mushroom. Which we had to share. Kinda undid all that flower buying.

Mini mush

Just one more thing before we go...

Designers Seb and Lewis?


Or is it Frodo and Samwise?


Over and out. Have a great weekend one and all.

some useful 'informashon'

Yesterday, we popped into a primary school in Bristol on The Hungry Grassy Van road trip

We just thought we'd share these wise words from the playground

How to play nicely
