We were setting off on the same day as the Silverstone Grand Prix, luckily for all the Formula 1 fans we had time to watch it before the Drivers Briefing at 2.30pm. It was definately getting difficult to sit still after a while - knowing we were going to be driving all night and just not being able to wait to find out where we were going!!!!

We had a lovely lunch and got to meet up with people that you only ever email or talk to on the phone, so it really was great! There are some other injured players who you only ever see at Twickenham because we are all from different parts of the country and only ever meet up on match days!
We watched some awesome rugby, we were supporting Esher who got all the way to the final only to be beated 12-19 by Samurai. Pictured above are Brazil and Durham University, Brazil won that match! Afterwards we took the banners off the car and were waved off, ready to prepare for the excitement the following day - and boy was it exciting!!!!!

Every year The Bay organise a cruise on Windermere for all the businesses who are associated with them. So last Thursday evening we went to Lakeside (the south end of the lake) to board the steamer!
It was a cloudy evening with a few spots of rain, a typical Cumbrian summer day in other words!
The Mallard - the little car ferry that runs from Bowness-On-Windermere to the Sawry side of the lake so you don't have to spend hours driving round. The ferry is on chains connected to each side that pull it backwards and forwards, the only problem is if there is too much water in the lake (if it rains to much!) the ferry can't run!!!
Catching the last of the sunshine looking towards Great Langdale, very beautiful!
Going back past Bowness looking back towards the north end of the lake. We had a lovely time despite not being the life and soul of the party! John and I were still struggling from a lack of sleep and the gentle rocking of the boat really made it difficult to keep our eyes open! At one point we were propping each other up hoping no one noticed our lack of conversation! Not to worry we are nearly back to normal now - it was worth it!!!

We have made it! What an amazing week we have had, you will have to forgive me, I know I promised to keep you updated but it was the most full on experience of our lives! I have masses of photos and stories to tell but I really need to catch up on some sleep first! So watch this space over the next few days and get ready to see the most amazing cars (and people!)

- You email us the image you want.
- You tell us the size you would like.
- We print the image onto canvas.
- We frame the canvas.
- And we put it in the post to you!
The only things you have to worry about is making sure the subject in the picture is not too close to the edge, as the framing involves wrapping the canvas around the bars, we don't want to chop the top of your head off!!!
The canvas pictures have been very popular (especially in the run up to Christmas) they are also very popular for birthdays. We have also done christenings and this morning framed a picture celebrating cycling from John O'Groats to Lands End! Anything to do with sporting achievements is also popular, we have done pictures of everything from cross country running, equestrian to ballet! Have a look and see what you would like done! You can find out more information by going to our website http://www.kc-inks.co.uk/PHOTO_CANVAS_PRINTING/PHOTO_CANVAS_PRINTING/
This is so new we haven't even got a button on the front page - but it is so exciting I just couldn't wait to tell you!

We have been targeting certain key phrases they are:
I know that this doesn't make a huge difference to you dear customer (because you are already here!) but it will do a lot to get our name out there to new customers. And we are really excited about that!

We have had a very long wait for these compatible cartridges! The problem was the chip - manufacturing by hand worked perfectly, it was just mass producing them that caused a few headaches, it has all been worked out now, but that's what the delay was! You can find T1295 here http://www.kc-inks.co.uk/Inkjet_Cartridges/Epson_T1295_Compatible_Multipack_Free_UK_Delivery_on_all_orders_–_Prices_include_VAT/ Don't forget you can pre order these cartridges now but they won't be posted until 20th June! Of course we always have the genuine cartridges in stock if you just can't wait! http://www.kc-inks.co.uk/index.php?p=catalog&mode=search&search_in=all&search_str=t128 http://www.kc-inks.co.uk/index.php?p=catalog&mode=search&search_in=all&search_str=t129
