Every week I get lots of email â€“ and also love to trawl through my rss feeds for cool things â€“ so here i give to you some of my finds and some things that landed in my inbox this week.
If you would like to send press releases or submit your own project please send to submit[at]whipup.net.
This coming week is my mother-in-laws 70th birthday – she is organising a midwinter musicale – champagne and snacks on the harbour – should be quite lovely. While we are visiting we will be doing all sorts of other lovely things too – and hopefully some relaxing will get included as well! The week after that is my 8 year old soon to be 9 year old son’s birthday. We will be seeing Harry Potter the finale on 3D – followed by an Indian restaurant feast. Fun!
