We have mountains of snow here and haven't seen the postman or a delivery driver since last week. Given that yesterday was the busiest day yet for web orders Twice HQ has been overflowing with packages going nowhere - we're about 1/4 mile from the nearest public (and therefore cleared) road. Relief came today - thanks to Alan our local farmer and his tractor. He very kindly cleared our drive which means that we might get a collection soon - but we can definitely start ferrying orders to the Perth PO and Parcelforce sorting offices. This is our trusty 4x4 loaded up and ready to go a moment ago. Fingers crossed that the packages leave Perth quickly once we've got them there.

Twice has hit the BBC! Our beautiful spurtles are being given out as prizes on Paddy O'Connells Radio 4 programme 'Broadcasting House'. The programme has been talking about the Golden Spurtle World Porridge Making Championships which were held in October at Carrbridge in the Scottish Highlands. In honour of the Championships the programme has decided to give out our spurtles as prizes in their weekly 'Spoon Competition' instead of spoons! We have branded them especially for the programme and they will be going out to the lucky winners over the next few weeks.
