Are you sitting comfortably? Then I’ll begin…

Once up a time, there was a red brick building in Carlisle that just wanted to be useful. That building was called Granville Hall. All through its life, it wanted to be useful and to be helpful. It was very good at being useful and it was very fond of being helpful. Once, it was… Continue reading ›

Your Own Green & Pleasant Land

It’s a time for the green fingered amongst us to share best practice about all aspects of garden maintenance and care. So, as National Gardening Week is drawing to a close, the Royal Horticultural Society advises that we do the following in our own little patches of Eden. Watch out for late frosts.

Fun in the Sun!

So, it’s happening… the two days of summer this year is upon us – ice creams all round! This morning on the way to work, I passed a shirtless dog walker well aware that this may be the only day shirtlessness can occur and he was clearly determined to make the most of it. We… Continue reading ›

Watch them walk, hear them talk, see the subtle flex of fingers in that inevitable close up of a hand… Continue reading ›

It’s all in the details

You know that person who lines up pieces of paper on their desk at equal distances and who will absentmindedly rotate a rogue pen two degrees anti clockwise so it is parallel to the ruler it sits next to? We all know that person; we may be that person. Well, that is Adam, proprietor extraordinaire… Continue reading ›

Winter is Coming!

It’s that time of year again when we begin the ‘will it, won’t it’ of weather preparation.
