Measuring up!

As if I haven't got enough on my plate at the moment, I have decided to bring forward my move to my new premises by a good 2 months and set a date for the end of February.

Armed with a piece of chalk, tape measure and a copy of the Ikea catalogue, I took an hour out of my day to measure up and consider where everything should go.

I now have 5 months experience of the way I seem to work - what I need better access to - what needs more/different space. Thankfully the Ikea units my husband built for me in late August, are all easy enough to use in various ways and arrangements. Of course, I will be needing more!!

More table space is an absolute must and I am on the look out for some metal, industrial style shelving in preparation for the arrival of my gift wrap which will be very heavy - I'll also position it by the door so there isn't as far to move it.

I'd love to find an old sofa and bits of old furniture to mix things up a bit but know I wouldn't get the chance to sit on it given how busy my days are. It would look nice though!

Off to the carpet fitters tomorrow to get some quotes - dread to think how much that will cost!

Fantastic Becky! Well done. It's such a lovely update on the way your business is growing. Do you have more hands than most people? I just don't know how you manage it all! Good luck with the carpet. x

If you decide on a sofa let me know. Have one at DH not expensive. Nothing like the pressure of doing things early! Sx
