Read Matt’s latest blog here!


Happy Sunday everyone, I haven’t written a blog for a little while so I thought I’d pen one this afternoon.

As you read this I’ll be more than likely tucking into a nice Sunday dinner as I already know I’m going out on Sunday afternoon for a friends birthday, so there’s something to look forward to!

As I write this, it’s Friday afternoon and pretty dull outside, so much for the Great British Summer. I’m supposed to be playing cricket tomorrow afternoon so hopefully there’s some improvement in the weather before then.

It’s been quite a while since my last blog actually so I’m not sure where to start today. It’s been a pretty busy period here at Strelitzia HQ but I’m going to try and keep the blog going more regularly over the summer; you lucky people!

It’s now just under 5 months until I get married and it’s already starting to feel pretty real. We had to pay for the venue a couple of weeks ago and I bought my suit last weekend. Obviously Sally and Katie from our sister company Flowers by Nattrass are doing the flowers! We’re getting married in a quaint little church near Roseberry Topping in North Yorkshire, which Sally seemed very keen to decorate for us. But don’t ask about the Honeymoon as the destination for that is still ‘under discussion.’

Anyone who has read my blogs before will also know I love football as much as cricket and my team is Hartlepool United. Unfortunately last season was a complete disaster both on and off the pitch and we ended up getting relegated out of the football league for the first time in our history. It was certainly a painful final day of the season but hopefully the summer will give us some respite!

Anyway, that is enough from me for this Sunday afternoon but keep an eye out in a couple of weeks for another blog. Enjoy the rest of your weekend and if you want to know anything about Strelitzia drop me an email:
