Invoices bearing gifts......

by Claire Martinsen on Tue 19th Nov 2013 14:07

Got a delivery through this week from a supplier…..and attached to the invoice was this bag of Jelly Beans – cute or what? Raised a little smile and brought a little moment of joy.  Nice touch. And they are a great supplier, so no wonder they pay attention to the small things…..

A Bracing Birthday at Houghton Hall

by Claire Martinsen on Fri 15th Nov 2013 17:00

The time when I was 'bumped'......

by Claire Martinsen on Wed 06th Nov 2013 19:43

I was on the way to Wells this morning listening to Chris Evans on Radio 2, and his run down of ‘Top Tenuous’…….the theme of today was  “I was up for being picked but I didn’t make the team!” Which dragged my memory back to the summer, when I was lined up to do an interview […]

Why I used to be shy and cheers to the Lambda boys.......

by Claire Martinsen on Tue 05th Nov 2013 08:41

I’ve had to go through my files just recently, and realised it was more than 2 years ago that I shot the video that’s on my website with Alex and Ryan of Lambda Films…….oh my how time flies! I’m actually very shy by nature, but being an entrepreneur kind of shakes that out of you. […]
