Hello,

Our string-tying team have even more blisters on their fingers than usual! Amy is scouring Europe for more Limeflower while Robin is keeping track of all the parcels flying out the door. There certainly hasn't been a dull moment this month.

After our write up in the Sunday Times Style last weekend insomniacs across the country have been wandering the aisles of our online stores and ordering their Sleepy Tea in the wee hours. Don't know why I'd never thought about it before - online shopping is perfect for people who can't sleep!

    Elodie used to work as a copywriter in advertising before she decided to give it all up and open a wonderful place for girls to shop in Brussels. She began her retail adventure over two years ago when she opened Rose Rose - if you're ever in Belgium do pop in for a spot of groovy Euro shopping.

    where else can I buy the teastack in Europe?

    Draw a Pig
    .
    Take this simple test online and find out what your drawing of a pig says about your personality.

    Apparently I am a good listener, analytical and remember peoples' birthdays. I won't tell you what it reveals about my love life nor how stubborn I am .

    We love recycling

    Fireplug, like his other little robot mates, is a unique piece of sculpture crafted by Gordon Bennett. Each one is made from recycled materials found in skips, construction sites and garage sales.These wonderful pieces are recycling at its best.

    Made of wood, bakelite, glass, rubber, plastic and paint each one comes numbered so that you can be assured that they are a Gordon Bennett original.

    Only problem is choosing just one.

    It seems that Lydia Slater of The Sunday Times Style magazine has been having trouble staying awake long enough to finish her Sleepy Tea.

    what Lydia had to say before she nodded off

    Tea Time
    Some commonly held Greek supersitions are: Tuesdays that fall on the 13th of the month are unlucky; if you sneeze it means that someone is thinking of you and bat bones are considered to be very lucky depending on which island you grew up on.

    Apart from their interesting superstitions they also have great pastries and cakes. I enjoyed a lesson in Greek delicacies last week when Stella and Merope came to stay.

    I had to halve this recipe when I wrote it up, but if your extended family is coming to visit then by all means double up the mixture!
