First day at Wrappler


It was my first day back to work today for over a year! I have my sign-off paperwork ready to go back to the Job Centre with tomorrow….it’s rather lovely to be doing that.

I brought leftovers wartime stew to the office (affectionately called POO STEW because it always comes out brown and poop like) and I started creating some Wrappler lists and generally having great fun putting them together.

Although it takes me 30 minutes walking and on the bus to get to WRAPPLER HQ, once I move in 2 months time, I’ll be just a five minute walk away.

Just wanted to shout out to Caroline, Bertie, Ben and Andrew and thank them for taking me on… a start up in Social Media is always going to be exciting. It’s their baby, they are lovely people and I have no doubt that this is going to grow and evolve into a huge fun and fabulous resource.

tinyAnd just incase you are tempted, here is a list I put together today with ideas for homemade gifts. I rather liked the Regency Pomander…it looks simple enough to make and I love olde fashioned things!

OMG- I made 3 Fruit Crisp pies from one of my 1940s recipe books and they were the nicest desserts I have ever tasted from my books (even better than the bread and apple pudding!). Even my man friend, who doesn’t really like oats, loved the pie I brought him. I will post the recipe tomorrow!!

  1. So glad to hear that things are looking up! I’m definitely checking out your list – Money is tight here this Christmas, and I’m looking for fun things to make for gifts.


  2. I’m surprised you’ve never made a pomander! They’re easy to make and they smell divine, the only thing is that your thumbs may be sore from the cloves when you’re done. I say give it a go and see how it works. Just don’t forget to sprinkle some nutmeg on there when you’re done, that really adds a little something.


  3. Vanessa,
    Look at Carolyns link to a site that she put up last year. I made some paper cross decorations. They were surprisingly easy to make and looked spectacular. Carolyn, could you put the link up again please?


  4. Just catching up on your recent posts: you look *smashing* in this photo above! and I’m very happy for you re the house and job and all 🙂


  5. This is not really about this post but I did not know where to post it. There is a Canadian TV series called Bomb Girls about women working in a bomb factory during WW2. It is in its third season which I guess is a fairly good testimonial (I love the show) to the quality of the show. I just saw that you can watch the episodes on line.
