Miracle soup recipe by our good friend Cherri who has achieved STAGGERING results with this potage potion!!

First things first - remember you are already beautiful. Only try this if your want to lose weight for YOU! This soup is amazing. In just a few days we've lost a few pounds each and the recipe is delicious. As with any diet we'd counsel that you seek medical advice before starting and that you augment the soup with plenty of protein; we enjoyed grilled chicken as we ran the diet and had as much soup as we could eat every time we were hungry. It's worked really well and we haven't felt hungry. If you're fit and well - give it a go! Blimey; we're almost beach ready! And remember to excercise too! Good luck!

They have branches in Vancouver and Calgary and are, apparently, looking to expand acrsoss Canada. We wish them luck. If they're loved as much as they are in The UK, then they're bound to grow fast!

Eating irons...

Cutt is a cutlery set made of 925 sterling silver. Geometrical correlating areas, accentuated through their folds, describe the design of this product. Neither function nor ergonomic suitability for daily use are in the front. The design of Cutt focuses on the cultural development of european tableware in form and content. It squares up with the axiom of form follows function.

Heids nipping...

Not entirely sure why we're blogging about headaches but one of us (Justin) is suffering from a cracker. It's finally being knocked into touch, however, with some Paracetamol... but it's been a right belter. Hhm. Maybe it had something to do with a fab wee night at The Drake? Caught up with a really good friend Faith who we don't get to see nearly often enough and had a few wee shandies in our new favourite Glasgow bolthole. But the hangovers don't normally last until the next evening, eh??
Anyway - it's getting better now.
In other news (hell, you must be on the edge of your seats by now) we're working on packing kilts -hence the pic' of our Bobble Head Dolls-and all manner of travel wares into teeny wee bags ahead of jetting off to Toronto tomorrow. We have an inbuilt aversion to 'hold luggage' so we always try and limit ourselves to carry on bags.

We actually have some of these in our Glasgow home which we bougtht at a trade fair last year. Friends weep when they see them as they're double deluxe comfy! So get up off you asses and go check out this cool website. Gorgeous enough to make a monkey bite its mother in sheer joyful glee! Pass us the smelling salts, we're having a turn...

Queens Garden Party

Really looking forward to tomorrow. We've been invited to Hollyrood to the annual Royal garden party and we're currently caught up in an ironing frenzy and trying on all manner of potential outfits... Will we wear the kilts... or the suits... Who knows? We'll decide in the morning. Last time we were in Royal company we were having dinner with Charles and Camilla and she seemed mesmerised by our kilts! We have an amazing photo in our office of us all screaming with laughter!

At long last we're getting laid...

And so it came to pass that two burly men (bearing a striking resemblance to the Mitchell brothers) arrived at our door this very morning. After a MASSIVE project overhauling our house and preparing for it's final stages, we're finally having carpets fitted as we type. Yay!! We've opted for smokey grey pretty much everywhere, apart, that is, from in one of our guest bedrooms where we've created a heather coloured fantasy with a four poster bed, antler chandeliers and a wall mounted stags head. In there, grey yields to soft almond carpet and natural stripped timbers.

Meanwhile, the Mitchell brothers are speachless. They seldom tackle whole house jobs, and, with 400 plus yards of Brintons carpet to be assigned to the floor, reckon they'll be here for two whole days. So we're on tea duty, and sandwitch prep'...

Later on we have the decidely unpleasant job of taking a whole pile of crap to the local dump. We're VERY glamorous don't you know! It's very satisfying to see our place coming together. Having built a career from beautifying the worlds housing stock, one needy room at at a time, it's fun to see our own place coming alive.

More later...

Lumbar cushions - a hugely popluar pillow shape in Canada but not always readily available in the UK. But here's one that caught our eye. And one which would provide useful lower back support on even the most unwelcoming chair...
And meanwhile, ANYTHING with Alice in Wonderland - as far as we're concerned, certainly - can only be a good thing. Now if someone could only package up Mr Depp and send him our way we'd be happy bunnies. We're SURE Helena wouldn't mind. Enjoy!

On a more mundane note the work is still going smoothly in our house. Window boxes being installed today by Trees R Green and they look wonderful. Outside it's grey and threatening rain and we have so much work to do...
