Happy belated New Year everybody. I know it is already February and some people will already be making plans for Christmas 2015, but lets get summer out of the way first. It’s been a busy January with no rest for the wicked since getting back from our short break. We’ve had a lot of interesting custom framing in and an influx of sports shirts to frame, from Froome’s Yellow Jersey, to a signed Pele Brazil shirt and an unveiling of the New Leeds Rhinos shirt – which will bring me onto my next paragraph.
Apart from all the bespoke picture framing we have been doing, we managed to find time for The Art Works annual Christmas party ( a wild affair I know). We treated ourselves to a corporate day at Headingley Stadium to watch the Leeds Rhinos Vs Bradford Bulls in a pre season friendly featuring the Legend that is Jamie Peacock for his Leeds Rhinos Testimonial. The game had a little bit more of an edge to it as I am a long time Bradford Bulls fan and Bj supports the Leeds Rhinos. This is a fixture that will be much missed this year due to the Bulls being relegated, but lets not go into that right now.
We would like to say a big thanks to the team at the Rhinos for an excellent Sunday afternoon where we were wined, dined and treated to an excellent game of rugby (I wont mention the score) and brilliant service. A nice touch was being addressed by some ex players and big personalities (Barrie McDermott) and then to cap it off a few inspiring words from the big man himself JP. We would thoroughly recommend the experience to anyone even if you don’t like Rugby League, a concept I struggle to grasp.
After the game we went for a few frames of pool which unfortunately age overcame youth and Bj and Keith won, mainly due to the fact that Keith turned out to be a bit of a shark and carried Bj in my opinion. So that’s it for 2014 looking forward to framing lots of new and creative things which we will blog about when they come.
