Thoughts from December 2012


Here at Fruit Towers, we've got a big walk-in fridge crammed full of smoothies and juice. Sometimes, people don't leave it in the state it should be left in (tut tut). So, we've had a (not so) high-tech cctv system installed. With the eye of cc-smoo-v casting down on them, hopefully people will now take their rubbish away  and not leave the place in a mess.


And even if it doesn't work, it shows just how much fun you can have with an empty kids' smoothies box and an old loo roll tube. Make your own and stick it over the cupboard if you want to make sure your Christmas chocolates don't all get stolen before the big day.

Many of you will have voted to get them here and now they reach their final challenge. Who wins Big Knit 2012 Hat of the Year? Only you can decide.
