We've been busy working on our next product,
code named "soul mates". It's involved numerous pots of tea and
sampling mornings in the office. We'll let you know more next month
but needless to say you're going to love it! We certainly do, the
extra kilos are evidence enough.
In the meantime here are some fun ideas to
make your week.
| I recently bought a book called One Red
Paperclip because it sounded like an intriguing idea and I
needed something to read on my train journey home. It's the
story of Kyle MacDonald and how he traded one red paperclip
for a house.
In a series of "up trades", each time
for something bigger and better, he manged to acheive his goal
of trading a simple paperclip for a house in exactly one year.
His journey was built solely on self
belief and although I started the book knowing the outcome it
was compulsive reading to find out how on earth he managed to
do such an impossible thing.
In the spirit of Kyle I now offer my
copy of the book to anyone that is willing to offer me
something bigger or better. Offers please? I'll publish the
successful trade next month.

| I love this idea.
Draw a doodle or even better get your
kids to draw one. Send it to Lucy (the moose) in Scotland and
she'll send you back a soft toy to your exact design. Warts
They're made of recycled fabrics and
are so different from anything you're ever likely to see on
the high street.

| The John Lewis partnership was set up in
1920 by John Spedan Lewis and enjoys the simple philosophy
that everyone who works for the company is a partner rather
than just an employee.
It was, and still is, an ambitious and
most admirable vision of how a business can put the happiness
of its employees at the heart of everything it does.

Lewis department stores across the country.

organisation and could really relate to some of what you have
written. Sometimes it is about more than the money, it feels

glad to have 'met' you." Stella Onions

I've made lots of
chocolate cakes in my time but this one's the best yet.
Made with ground, roasted pecan nuts
the cake comes out deliciously nutty, chocolatey and moist.
Try try try. You won't be
disappointed. This one comes with my personal guarantee.
