Still not back to 'normal' yet so in the photo department l am falling back on the old 'here's one l prepared earlier', it is a nice photo tho, so l hope you will forgive me for not snapping away as fast as l should.
Yesterday was catch up day. I got most of the orders filled and off to the post office. The banking was done and l have started sorting out the stock for Hopetoun House later this week. Definately a tad short on Tweedy Pie robins and the Tweedy Puddings, name hearts in short supply and not a pine cone in sight.
Some things you just know will be big sellers, some things you are sure will be sellers but then they don't move an inch. Other items you can be unsure of and be completely surprised one way or the other. Oh to have a crystal ball and know what to make………………
In London my Tweedy Bunting wasn't a great seller, however in Glasgow it fairly flew off the stand. I had thought it would be popular and was pretty crushed when it didn't sell in London, was thrilled when it was popular in the home land! It was the same story on the Crystal Hearts, no interest in London, but boy were they popular up here. On a sales per show basis Glasgow was double the London business. It is funny as l had thought that it would be the other way round. It is now making me ponder on the sensibilities of doing London again next year. Hmmmm should l save on London and put more into Glasgow. I would love a bit more space and this would be more cost effective.
So what is on the cards for today? A run, don't know if l will make my usual 2 mile distance as it has been a good 2 weeks since l last donned the trainers. Oh well, l shall give it a go. Try to clean the house a bit and finish sorting stock for Hopetoun House. Have l emptied the car yet? Good Lord no, just putting more stuff into it for Thursday.
Almost back to normal. One strange thing l have to mention. Anyone who is a regular reader might notice that l often miss the k off words. This isn't me being thick it is the laptop. Was getting pretty worried about it thinking my trusty little pal was on his way out. Well imagine my surprise when l tapped away last night, there was k popping up whenever pressed. None of the usual extra pressure, back spacing madly to tap away and fill it in. No, there it was for all to see, l got quite excited and went kkkkkkkkkkk just to test it and see if l could catch it out, but no, looks like k is back for good. Probably had something stuck under it and it has magically sorted itself out over the past 2 weeks. Maybe the Laptop Fairy has paid me a visit. Who knows, at least people will now get emails from Karon instead of my alter ego aron.
