We’ve just received some lovely artworks for a book we’re working on.

Here’s one of them…

How lovely is that?

It was drawn by Tom Knight.

He’s lovely too.

If you want to commission Tom, here’s his website:

New year. New diary desktop all-in-one.

Wednesday, January 26th, 2011

Johnny has got everyone in the bigtop office a diary… except for me! He keeps promising but I’m still here waiting. Well guess what Johnny – I don’t even need your stinking diary. Instead, I am going to be super efficient electronically. Drastic organization methods have been implemented for 2011. Above is my new folder structure. You will see a field for date to be worked on, job number and time allocated. You may wish to copy this for your own use, or you can come into the bigtop office on Monday 31st Jan when I will be conducting a powerpoint presentation to the rest of the bigtop team on the new desktop environment. Or you can just punch me in the face and tell me to get a life…

Chai

Thursday, January 20th, 2011

I’ve been enjoying Chai tea latte’s recently… various coffee shops make them and I find them a good replacement for coffee when you don’t want caffiene. I decided to experiment making my own and it worked. All you need is a Chai tea bag filled with half a put of hot water, and then some frothed milk on top. I have Soya milk sometimes which makes it a little bit sweeter.

I’m trying to get James and Daniel into Chai too, but this pic is the closest I’ve got so far. Ha ha. Amy is off with flu :( but I think she might enjoy a cup of chai when she’s back in. Might cheer her up after being ill.
