Panic not my friends, I am not turning into a dreaded 'business blogger' with a 'buy it now' button at the end of the post. Far from it, I just want to show you what I have been up to this weekend and to shout from the rooftops 'I've done it!', I've filled all the trade orders I got at the Stirling fair two weeks ago.
I must admit to be a tad stressed (who, moi?) on this one. I was determined to get all the trade stuff out of the way by the this week. In fact i had set myself a goal. I had to have it all finished and boxed up by 'close of play' on Friday. Now whether this 'closure' would be in the middle of the night didn't really matter, it just had to be done. Anyway I did it by 1pm on Friday and then celebrated by sweeping up HQ and finding the floor again. Half the orders hit the post office, and now just waiting for payment for the rest. Phew, relief!
Keeping up the working momentum I even managed to hit the web site and finally updated it by putting Leviche de Landes on line at last. Did pix of my Christmas stuff, so that will be going up next week.
Yesterday I took Idgy and Mr X to the station. They are off to London for a few days to see the dinosaurs (yet again) at the Natural history Museum. They had decided to travel by train rather than flying as Idgy has never been on a long train journey before. The fact that the train cost way more than flying is ridiculous really. Anyway our Idgy was most impressed that there were no luggage restrictions and you could take your own juice with you. They went rather over the top on this score, it looked like the teddy bears picnic with the amount of food they had in their extra bag.
I came home and headed out to HQ. It does look strange when you can see the floor and don't have to climb over piles of stuff just to get in there. Armed with a mug of coffee, a bar of chocolate and Michel Thomas teaching me French, I settled down to a day of painting Christmas gift bags. Four hours later, all food and drink devoured, M.Thomas played out twice (and no words remembered) and hundreds of gift bags painted and hung up to dry.
Into the house for a quiet evening in front of the fire sewing Christmas robins with a glass of wine and my furry friends for company.Quite a nice weekend really. How about you?
