Grumpy sprout

Doesn’t christmas come around quickly? as a retailer there’s nothing more annoying than a rep walking in on a lovely summers day with the christmas catalogue  but if you want to stock the latest christmas range then you must see them and place an order.  From the buyers point of view it’s always good to see […]

Today is the birthday of our resident Cockatoo Lulu who is 28 today.  Now some of you that follow Lulu on Facebook will be aware that her age has  been documented in the past as 30 something but new evidence that has come to light shows Lulu’s real age to be 28.  It would be […]

Kernel Kat, tried, tested …and loved!
