New Year, new challenges, with one eye on the season ahead its time to prep – Swyron’s puffing virtual e-smoke, so needs a complete overhaul – powered by a Golf buggy battery, its a re-chargable green – non emissions vehicle, so its going in for its annual MOT!
Stuff that needs a new home and stuff that’s seen better days – its time to say good bye!
So its off to the container we go……hi ho, hi, ho…
90% preparation 10% perspiration…we think not!
Plotting and planning our next spectacle, we came across this image. Part of our hefty collection of archive images, source material and videos (VHS’s) around Mannequins and these near perfect porcelain manufactured High Street doyens.
From the days of ‘my hair is bigger than yours’, if you have a ‘Hema’ Style hair do, or if someone in your family or friends circle makes a connection please get in touch, we’d love to hear from you, listen to you story – remember, no two big hair stories are the same and we haven’t been able to keep a straight face yet, challenge us!
January always starts hard and fast for us. New year resolutions up and running (well almost!), happy new year greetings almost exhausted and with a chill in the air, we couldn’t think of a better way to start the year than to be be surrounded by books in the home of Joya Knight.
Partition survivor, former science teacher in the UK’s first comprehensive, Japanese language student and all round Nutkhut inspiration Joya Knight kicks of our calendar month. Researching her life amongst her books and her art has been an inspiration and a total Joy.
After a chance meeting in the lobby of our office in Charlton House, Joya’s contribution to our ‘Defining Moments’ series has contributed to making the whole process clearer and has given the project meaning. Joy’s lived experience of Partition will form part of our National Education Toolkit for generations to come.
The first flurry of snow to hit the lawn.
The view from our office hasn’t changed for 400 years – well, except for a few 1960’s flats in the distance and a recently opened skate park!
15 mins from Canary Wharf, the financial heart of Europe (not for long though bahhhhh :(), 20 mins to London Bridge and 2 mins walk to our favourite morning cafe, Nutkhut HQ is that careful balance of a place to work a place to think and a place to meet in a big,bustling city.
Come rain or shine, catch us midweek on our regular 20 minute weekly meeting walk -championed by Steve Jobs, Sigmund Freud, Aristotle – walkingmeetings are now being prescribed by Public Health England (PHE) as a potential cure to chronic sedentarism in the workplace.
So out of the back door, around the lawn, past the Ha Ha (the sunken ditch at the end of the lawn), around the rose garden, through the Japanese Peace Garden, huzzah! Meeting done!
So,come rain or shine, flurry or no flurry, our walking meeting are a must!
