A trip to Scarbrough on Saturday to play the penny waterfalls with the kids (now 2p waterfalls ) revealed a uniquely Yorkshire spelling.

Can’t spell for toffee myself , so loved this !

Somewhere over the M62 Rainbow

June 24, 2008

Well home was just over those hills !

The Journey home across the Pennines on the M62 in the high wind was an adventure….but as always there is something just plain amazing to look at.

Liverpool

Our Orange Aesculus was all over town for the Design Show Liverpool ! Mad ! Good show, met many new great people both makers and customers, thank you to all who visited the stand, especially the familiar faces which are especially welcome in an unfamiliar city… and a special thank you to ‘Taxi Paul ‘ for taking such good care of me

We were high up in the CUC building affording a great view over the city, which made the 10am to 10pm days more bearable.

Sadie Jemmett

Back to the band room in Farndale ( again.. what a great venue ) on the night of the 14th. Loved it ! and the CD just gets better with each play. Sadie has an amazing voice and an honesty and integrity in her performance, music and presentation which is rare. Love the acoustic Buzzcocks cover ! Link in associates have a listen to her first CD ‘The Blacksmiths Girl’.

New Aesculus June 14th- 20th July

Just returned from 6 wonderful, sunshine filled days in Denmark. 30’c on Sunday and swimming in the sea we were, unbelievable and glorious.

Visited the new Ebeltoft Glass Museum and many glass making friends whose hospitality was as ever, generous. Thank you.
