don't worry, BEE happy.....

Look at this little fella who buzzed
through my letterbox today........

Isn't he the sweetest thing?

He was made by the talented Miss pop-i-cok and
he came to live with me when her lovely little boy
pulled my name out of a sock.

I promise to look after him and give him lots of love
(fluffy youngest has clocked it and I'm sure he'll be flying
into her room any day now..........)

Thanks lovely lady, he's the bees-knees xxx

go take a peek at her lovely blog here pop-i-cok

with a baa baa here and an oink oink there.....

as part of our annual charity day our packaging design team
decided to give it's time to Kentish Town City Farm in north London.

It was such a wonderful day and much mucking out and
laughter was had by all.
I am privileged (as are my children) to live in a very middle class town surrounded by all the countryside you can shake a hunter welly at. So giving a day to this lively, friendly city
farm where children from poor backgrounds are encouraged to
come and pet, muck out and enjoy a little bit of country in the
city was so enjoyable.
This farm runs on donations and is in dire need of volunteers and fundraising to maintain it's fantastic work in the community. As a team we are tackling the signage and posters and coming up with some little fun ideas for fundraising days.
If you would like to donate or you know of any local celebs who wouldn't mind joining in to raise the profile of this most
amazing little farm then please help.

it's the end of the world as we know it.........

according to evangelical broadcaster Harold Camping
the world will end at 6pm today...........
(he predicts that today, 21st May 2011 at 6pm (7,000 years after Noah's flood)
there will be a a huge earthquake which will envelope the earth.
He made the same prediction in 1994 but he got his calculations wrong!!!)

I want to take this opportunity to say it's been lovely
knowing y'all and thanks for the laughs x

(ps just in case he gets it wrong (again) see you back here on monday morning)
