FELICITATIONS from the ‘umble ‘ovel on the ‘ill and from this, my newly redecorated blog.
My old friend Juliet Lunn is a bit of a whiz at these things as you can see.
And after a bit of re-wiring here and some new plumbing there, bingo! - I’m hurled, headlong into the 20th century!
Meanwhile, the site has had more than 28,000 hits and has been followed up by the Guardian, the Times, the Financial Times, the Independent and Channel 4 News.
The vicious circulation war between ourselves and the Isle of Arran Shoemakers’ Monthly and the Hansom Cab Lamp Fitters’ Gazette is now behind us.
Just a few more hits and we shall be equal to that of the Guardian and the Times combined.
Many TV companies have been trying to twist my arm to do a frank face to face.
Bloomberg TV has been the most persuasive and I’ll keep you posted.
Best follow me on Twitter @nthurlbeck for all updates on that front.
Back to Juliet. Highly recommend. I’ve known her for 30 years and she’s the wife of an old chum, whom I’ve known since our school and university days.
Together they run A Plain Fish and can be contacted through their website here:
Her prices are good and she’s quick and imaginative too.
But if you need to drop by their workshop, don’t forget to wear a boiler suit, a hard hat and avoid sitting on the chairs.
