The end is in sight - Hurray!
I have, since ............. well it seems like forever been going on about the 'big' order - well come Monday, it finally leaves dots and spots HQ and to be perfectly honest with you, I can't wait!
The past 2 days have been so incredibly busy and exhausting - actually packing all the individual made up elements, into their specific orders.
The cards and place settings have gone from piles of printed stock, to being laid out and packed, to being stacked into towers and finally into individual order boxes.
The tape has gone from a neat but foreboding tower, to being checked, neatened and prepared for packing, to this chaotic heap of empty boxes ready to be recycled.
This was the scene that met me this morning - looks a mess but I assure you was very much organised chaos!
Today has been the final push and with a further 36 boxes packed - the order is complete! Well my bit of it is anyway - Jeff now has to book all the parcels in with the courier for a Monday dispatch, fix on all the address labels for 30 individual stores and then trolley them all down the hallway to the loading bay and onto the van!
I would like to thank my wonderful team for all their help - I most certainly wouldn't have got through it all without them and continue to keep up with all my normal dots and spots orders of which the most recent, will be given my full attention tomorrow and Saturday!
I will reveal all once I see it in store - don't get too excited - you may not have heard of them. I certainly hadn't before one of the stores was built local to me!
