We're collecting OK stuff
Send us all your OK stuff! We’re collecting everything lovely to do with OK on our flickr set so we’d be delighted if you could pass anything OK related our way on Twitter @mrandmrsok #okstuff OK? OK. So far we’ve got some nice George Mason & Co. OK Sauce bottles and adverts: We’d love to find more!
I love the texture of cross-stitch and have been wanting to get going on making something of my own design, but, I thought I should probably try and jog briskly before running so I’ve got this lovely kit from Emily Peacock (another find from watching Kirstie). It will be a cushion cover eventually (though at the moment it’s two lines of blue kisses), but the wool all coiled up like...
The OK clock
We commisioned this piece from Helaina last year and finally picked it up last week. It’s stunning, the photos don’t really do it justice. Find out more at Helaina’s website
What, for a man with my cooking experience, could possibly phase me when it comes to the kitchen? As it turns out standing in a kitchen in Yorkshire, with three folks, Yorkshire born and bred, a tub of proper Yorkshire dripping to hand, and the prospect of producing Yorkshire puddings for a proper Yorkshire Sunday roast. No pressure then! Fortunately I have a simple, easy to remember and almost...
Above the fold
I ordered this book on the basis of the website, which I love and even though I am clearly not the target audience, it’s always interesting to take a paddle around the mind of another web designer attempting to explain the fundamentals. There’s some great stuff in here: web typography, site planning, SEO & analysis amongst them. There’s also quite a lot of Jason Santa...

How I learned to stop worrying and love the frozen...
As a food snob I’ve had a tough time admitting I can’t be bothered to chop onions unless they are red and to be grilled and marinated in balsamic. Like washing up, ironing and pushing back your cuticles, onion preparation has always been a task I’d rather avoid. No wonder then that I consider the frozen onion to be amongst the 20th Century’s finest achievements. The...
We're almost OK!
Alright, we’re not quite formally Mr & Mrs OK yet but we’re one step closer now, we got officially engaged on Thursday! (It’s even prettier in real life!) Now I’m apparently John’s financier which seemingly is a type of rum soaked teacake… ahem! (Rach)
Day-to-day I spend much of my time prodding statistics, shaping wireframes, or pushing post-it notes around a wall in search of an answer. It’s all jolly good fun but it’s nice to do something simple for a change. So when my good friend Omar started talking about a blog in red and black, I dived on in. View full size screenshot at Flickr I quite liked the earlier version but...
We're all about the universe
I don’t know whether it’s a quirk of television scheduling but often we find ourselves watching lots of programs about one particular topic. A while ago this was light and maths but at the moment it seems to be all about the stars. We’ve been watching Professor Brian Cox’s endearingly over-enthusiastic series Wonders of the Universe (all the time not being able to...
Anatomy of a child's stomach
The conversation around the dinner table usually goes something like, “I’m full!” followed by, “what’s for pudding?” When asked to draw a diagram explaining how there is space for pudding. Josh (9) came up with this wonderful drawing. Note the tube for moving puddings to the correct spot should they accidentally end up in the tea area. I also love the fact...
