30 April 2010

Well, I tackled my mini projects down the workshop and can now happily look forward to a fun bank holiday. I tried a finishing technique for the first time for a centre piece for a dining room table. It"s an oblong tealight holder made of ash. The finish uses a combination of black spirit dye, s ...

Well, another week is nearly over at WPP towers, looking back, the team at WPP has achieved a lot this week. We"ve got our special edition of WPP to the production department and, bar one or two bits of the inevitable tinkering that is needed, it"s looking really good. I hope you like it whe ...

21 April 2010

Well, our latest issue is nearly in the bag, just a few minor hiccups at the last moment.

It"s been a very busy day in the office, sorting out the latest issue of WPP. And I"ve been remiss in taking my share of the tea runs to keep everyone fuelled up and raring to go. Thankfully Andrea, my colleague who works on F&C, has been an absolute giant of the tea run today, and has been  ...

Yandles, busier than ever

Nigel Morris

13 April 2010

Well, I"m back in the office after having yesterday off in lieu of my days at Yandles. And what a brilliant show it was. They changed things around a little, which meant our stand wasn"t in the usual spot, and this led to a little confusion over pay points... (if I have to say the sentence & ...

Hi all. While Matt"s away at Yandles, it is left for me to fill in for the day. By all accounts, Matt is having a whale of a time at the show and would love to meet as many WPP readers as possible, so if you have some free time on your hands this weekend, why not take yourself over to Somerset a ...
