Did you get up to much over the bank holiday weekend? The Aurora team certainly did! If we weren’t jetting away like balletfanatic, anynoise, photohead or Candice, we were busy staying put, where crafting, baking and adventure were high on agendas of CraftyFox, DramaQueen and CuriousScientist. Of course there was also a serious amount of [...]

1. Attendance. While rummaging through the big rotter’s school bag the other day, I came across a certificate from her head teacher for 100% attendance for the previous term. Naturally I was proud and congratulated her on the award, which she informed me was given to only two kids in her year. I mentioned it [...]

Did you make any new year’s resolutions? Maybe an alcohol/chocolate free January? Or even a pledge to read more books or take a class in something? Here at Aurora we are also starting something new in 2013, for the first time we have chosen a ‘charity of the year’ to work with over the next [...]

For this week’s Wordless Wednesday blog post, we asked the office to submit some of their snowiest snaps over the past week. With rain on the way, we’re glad we made the best of it whilst we could. Got any pics that you’d like to share? Be sure to get in touch if you do. [...]

On the fifth floor of Clover House, the Aurora team received an unexpected visit from a feathered guest this morning. In the absence of anything to eat however, it left in a hurry. Off in search of some other snacks we imagine – like this silly Scottish sea bird caught on camera a couple of [...]

Here’s a question for you. If I was to describe you as a flexitarian with a dumbphone and a particularly distinctive sillage, would you know what I was talking about? No? Well you soon will. According to the BBC and the Oxford English Dictionary these are going to be the buzzwords of 2013. (For the [...]

This Friday finds the Aurora office bright, woolly and very cosy, as we take part in Save the Children’s Christmas Jumper Day! All of us at Aurora have travelled to work sporting jumpers either bought, borrowed or blinged, and donated money to Save the Children to contribute towards their life-changing work with the world’s most [...]

You may have noticed that we have not written a Thirsty Thursday blog in quite a while. Whilst the blog posts may have slowed, we can assure you that we have been continuing our Thirsty Thursday tradition. Following our last blog post, the Aurora team tried one final pub. As a reminder, we have been [...]

In the last couple of weeks a stranger has appeared in the Aurora office, or, to be more specific, the Aurora fridge. We have branched out into the new and (mildly) exciting world of caffeine-free Coca-Cola and our trendy 1950’s style fridge is glittering festively with red (full-fat), silver (diet) and gold (caffeine-free) aluminium goodness.

When I got home from work last night, the little rotter was sat on the sofa with one leg tucked under and one leg sticking out. She then proudly announced that she wanted to be a paralympian when she grew up. Their obsession with the Olympic games has been impressive. First came the sprint races [...]
