  • Teastack Barnstorming the UK
    The reaction to our Teastack has been overwhelming!

    They're flying off the shelves and all the darling magazine and newspaper editors are falling over themselves to get their hands on a sample. The reports of one Times journalist organising her coloured paper clips into the different sections when she finished drinking the tea is completely untrue.

    Our sourcing man, Adriano is on the case organising more Teastacks in time for the Christmas rush. And he's also busy collecting all the magazine articles about it to show his mum.

    If you would like to get your hands on one then check out our list of stockists on the website. Happy stacking. RRP 13.95

    How many trees does it take to fly to Australia?
    The answer is 6.

    In August I'm flying from London to Melbourne to visit my brand new nephew Jake. The flight is 33846 km long and my presence on the flight will produce 3.72 tonnes of CO2 alone.

    According to the clever people at Future Forests if I plant 6 trees I will offset the Carbon that I'll be contributing to the environment with this journey.

    Carbon dioxide emissions are one of the main causes of global warming. Unfortunately we all produce CO2 by driving cars, boiling the kettle, watching TV or even going on holiday. The good news is this website shows you what we can do about it.

    I will be flashing my Carbon Neutral luggage tag when at the check in and hope that the world will be a cleaner, healthier place for Jake and all his little mates in years to come.

    How much carbon do you use boiling the kettle?

    An Inspiration
    When I started up Today was Fun nearly four years ago I was living with a film director, Yvonne Deutschman. She had left a successful career at the BBC with the dream of becoming a feature film director.

    Last Friday, One Love, Yvonne's first feature film had its London premiere. The upbeat, feel good romantic comedy is set in Jamaica and stars Ky-Mani Marley, one of Bob's sons in the lead role.

    The story for me is one of a woman's determination and sheer persistance in realising her dream. Congratulations Yvonne, you are an inspiration.

    Iced Tea Time
    "St Swithin's Day, if it does rain
    Full forty days, it will remain

    St Swithin's Day, if it be fair
    For forty days, t'will rain no more."

    In a country that is so obsessed with discussing the weather is it any wonder that Britain looks as far back as the 9th century for clues to the forecast?

    Just like paying attention to your horrorscope when it says something good we are choosing to believe the ancient saying this year.

    We raise a glass of Iced Inspiration Tea to the 40 days of sun to come.
