And this is the last of the Birthday videos…

Thank you all for being such good friends to us over the past year – it has meant a huge amount to us. Hope you stick with us in the future and perhaps we’ll see you when we get round to organising the Official Birthday Bash. In the meantime, here’s another one we nicked off You Tube…

It was a very good year for William Shatner too

Here’s our second stab. Bizarre.

It’s been a Good Year

Well, in between the champagne and oysters, we’re trying to think how we could express the concept of a really good year in song. Here’s our first stab:

Yep. It’s all going pear-shaped

What did we tell you? Eclairs in the morning, champagne at lunch, heaven knows what the evening will bring.

Here, Michael and Brian open a bottle of bubbly sent in by one of our many admirers.

In the background are flowers from another admirer.

For those of you who haven’t sent in any pressies yet, this is your final hint!!

We are one

And so it begins – a weekend of unbridled celebration to mark the first birthday of Elm House Creative.

Things are kicking off here in the morning with a Cream Fest, featuring doughnuts, eclairs and profiteroles.

God knows what lunchtime or evening will bring.

If any of you want to pop in after 4.00 you’re more than welcome.

BYOB.

Good luck to our new friends in Kilkenny


It’s the all-Ireland hurling final this Sunday when Henry Shefflin (pictured) leads his Kilkenny team out against underdogs Limerick. For those of you who don’t follow the best game in the world, that’s a bit like Man Utd versus, well, Aston Villa.

Anyway, best of luck to the Kilkenny lads. Ross and Michael in particular will be cheering them on after having spent many hours in the county recently. As they say in that part of the world, Up The Cats!

Meet our first Fantasy Footie Manager of the Month

Familiar with the expression ‘keeping it in the family’? Well that’s exactly what the O’Frils were doing when Fantasy Football League Chairman Brian (on the right, by the way) had the honour of presenting his son Ronan (on the left, by the way) with the the first Elm House Creative Fantasy Football League Manager of the Month Award.

The dazzling presentation took place at ‘the bottom of the stairs’ after the nine year-old (I repeat: nine year-old!) had come down from doing his homework. (Obviously, though, he had been ‘doing his homework’ on the football front because his team – Arsene’s Wizards – currently sit atop the league with an impressive 20-point advantage).

Speaking after receiving his award, young Ronan said that it was a terrific honour to pick up the trophy, especially with so many other great managers in the league. When pressed for names, the kid said he couldn’t think of any – he was just trying to be nice.

The challenge is now on to see who scoops the award for next month. So come on all you more seasoned managers – don’t let the kid make it two in a row.

(By the way, he’s not really that tall – he’s standing on the bottom steps.)

(Ronan, that is – not Brian)
