That’s a wrap!

Hello from the work week ending 5 May 2017

This week one of our lovely colleagues returned from her honeymoon in South East Asia proudly sporting a lovely tan. We, on the other hand, huddled in our knits and scarves, told her tales of the plunging temperatures around the country this week and our much paler complexions.

As we speak, our NYLD team is getting ready full force for the first of this year’s events – kicking off in Hamilton this coming Monday, and we are excited to hear how it all unfolds!
