Better late than never … we wish everyone a happy, healthy and prosperous 2012.

Well what did Christmas bring… The John Lewis Christmas ad with Slow Moving Millie singing a fabulous Smith’s song: “Please Please Please, Let Me Get What I Want”… which apparently Morrisey fully approved of.

We understand the ad made people cry! You can buy a number of the covers used by John Lewis in their TV adverts on ‘Reworked’. John Lewis will give a £2 donation to Save The Children for every purchase of the cd.

The Season Of Mists and Mellow Fruitfulness

October 10, 2011 - 12:56 pm 1,006 Comments

Season of mists and mellow fruitfulness,
Close bosom-friend of the maturing sun;
Conspiring with him how to load and bless
With fruit the vines that round the thatch-eves run;
To bend with apples the moss’d cottage-trees,
And fill all fruit with ripeness to the core;
To swell the gourd, and plump the hazel shells
With a sweet kernel; to set budding more,
And still more, later flowers for the bees,
Until they think warm days will never cease,
For Summer has o’er-brimm’d their clammy cells.

It certainly is as Keats described here in Berkshire today – we will certainly be wrapping up warm to venture out later on with ‘the Chairman and Board’.
We were reminded of this great campaign from White Stuff. We may not go as far as wearing a
tea-cosy on our head yet – but will bear it in mind as the dark, winter nights draw in further!
