All the way from … the Lofoten Islands! No, I hadn’t heard of them either, but it turns out that they’re way up north in the land of the midnight sun. Last year was a Significant Birthday for Mr Irvine and we’re celebrating it by going further up the globe than either of us has ever yet been. This means that L&F is yet again left in Isobel's capable hands: all I can say is that your orders and our business plan couldn’t be safer. She’s the creative talent, the innovator, the social media bod and even the one who sorts the postage (yuck), so I can go gallivanting off secure in the knowledge that all will be well in my absence. If there’s anything there to buy, I might even bring her back a little something to say thank you. Might.
