This Week We Have Been
…feasting on delicious food at River Cottage HQ. Tucked away on the Dorset/Devon border, River Cottage HQ – Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall’s mastermind project – gives a dining experience like no other. We entered the tepee, with full open fire, for a homemade apple aperitif that’s so good we bought a couple of bottles, and gorgeous canapés, before moving to the barn’s deck for the alfresco 5 course meal. Just some of the delights we tasted included: beef and venison curry, Thai crab soup, Guinea fowl cooked three ways and raspberry ripple profiteroles. Every bite was stunning, but we were truly stuffed by the end of the incredible evening. Here’s to a good few sessions in the gym to work it all off!
…singing along with Stevie Nicks at the Fleetwood Mac concert at the O2. The band played a mixture of their greatest hits across the decades and even performed a couple of their new songs from their forthcoming studio album. Considering they are no longer spring chickens, they played with such passion, emotion and enthusiasm to rival today’s bands and which transported us back to their 70s heyday. Chrissie McVie even made a rare appearance to perform ‘Don’t Stop’! Somehow we feel our lives are a little bit more complete having seen them live. Here’s a short video of our favourite song.
..basking in our Marketing Week glory at seeing a full-page devoted to our recent HTC campaign where we partnered with David Koma on a special edition of the HTC One mini. A fabulous nod to have from the industry title and a great way to end a campaign that started in the UK but has gone truly global!
…tucking into pick a mix and retro crisps at our corner shop themed Fever Monthly Meeting, courtesy of the ‘Pod in the Corner’.
…kicking ass around the office testing out some pretty nifty super hero outfits, for our Kick-Ass 2 pre-order activity.
…watching in awe as king of the Rubik’s cube Richard impressed the ladies of the office with his impeccable skills, completing the puzzle in less than one minute and 30 seconds. Wow that’s quick!
