Custard Creams on the Telly

One of our twitter pals got in touch over the weekend to let us know that our Custard Cream Cushions had been spotted on the telly! The advert for Jools Oliver’s new range of kids’ clothing at Mothercare, Little Bird was filmed in the Oliver’s family home- blink and you’ll miss it- but at 0:38 there’s a definite glimpse of a…

Holiday à la Instagram

Holiday à la Instagram

There were 3 cameras between us on our trip to Cyprus last week- and I didn’t use any one of them more than I used the camera on my iPhone.  I tried to travel light most days- and lugging a big(ish) camera around in the sweltering heat (It was 39°C on the hottest day) just wasn’t appealing!
