Happy Friday everyone.  The Bank Holiday weekend is finally here!!  What are you going to be doing this weekend.  Going somewhere nice or relaxing in the garden and doing a bit of pottering about?  Hopefully the weather will stay fine and we can enjoy some outdoor activities.  Maybe even get the barbeque out, you never know.  If you are thinking of entertaining outside then how lovely would these glass bottle t-lite holders look hanging around your garden.  They come in a choice of four funky colours 
and are only £4.99 each. Brilliant!! And if you don't want to burn your fingers lighting them how about a box of our fabulous long matches.  They are only £3.25 or buy them in this zinc container for £6.99.  All of these can be found on our Fire & Light page.  Don't forget our May Offer, a FREE GIFT for our first 10 customers who order.  It's going well, but you wouldn't want to miss out, would you?

Well the sun has definitely got his hat on today so I hope you are all making the most of it and getting out and busy in your gardens.  Enjoy it while it lasts as it's bound to change this weekend for the Bank Holiday, it usually does!  Anyway, update on sick little Alfie - he is feeling much better thank you, obviously Glen helped in that department by looking after him so well  (anyone who didn't see Sundays blog wont have a clue what I am going on about - so go and read it) so he is back to his little mischievous self I am very glad to report.
Right, now you may recall last week I hinted that some of our lucky customers could be receiving a FREE GIFT when they place an order.  Well here is the deal.  As James and I are both celebrating our birthdays this month, we thought it would be a nice idea to give something back to our lovely customers.  So the first 10 CUSTOMERS who place an order in this merry month of MAY will each receive a FREE GIFT.  I'm not telling you what it is but I will say that it will help you when dining in your garden this summer!  So go on, take a good look round our website at all our lovely products and remember only the first 10 CUSTOMERS will receive the gift.  Be lucky!!!!

 Good Morning campers and I hope you are all well this Sunday morning.  I would say sunny Sunday morning but once again in Carlisle we have rain!  Anyway all is not good in the Ruddick household this morning as poor little Alfie is a bit under the weather but never fear Glen is here to look after him.  Glen I here you ask, is this a new member of the Ruddick family?  Not quite but he is our Product of the Week.  As you can see Alfie and him get on 

great.  Here he is on Alfies' bed keeping him company.  Anyway more about Glen.  You will find him on our Inside Gifts page.  He is a Border Collie ornament which is made from ceramistone which means he can either be placed inside or outside your home.  He measures 24cm in height and is quite a weighty item.  He is priced at £44.00 and would make a brilliant present for any dog lover.
With Father's Day fast approaching I'm sure he would be much appreciated by any dog loving dad's out there.  But don't worry if its not Border Collies you are into as Glen has many friends.  We have a collection of dogs including Westies, Greyhounds, Staffies, English Bull Terriers and a German 
Shepherd called Bart who has already gone to a new home.  Now although I have said Glen can be placed in the garden, personally I would not leave him outside during Winter.  Bring the poor fella in and sit him by your fireside.  Well, that's it for today we are off to the vets now to see what is making Alfie sick.  Watch out on Wednesday as we are going to be telling you about a Special Offer we are running during May.  Enjoy the rest of your weekend and keep shopping!!!
