Normal life resumes.....

A big thank you to you all for your lovely comments about Ideal Home Magazine - and for allowing me to feel 'On Top of the World' for a day - but life has returned to normal with a bump.
Today dots and spots went back to work 'proper' with my little team at the helm, complete with an additional poorly boy - not part of the plan!

All our trade customers should be receiving this postcard through their letterboxes in the next few days, detailing our Top Drawer Trade Show stand details D18.


Agents packs of new samples have been made up, collated and boxed ready to send out with our couriers tomorrow. They always take longer to prep than you think but if the orders come flooding in then it will be worth it!


Stock is desperately being prepared so we can be slightly ahead of ourselves she says, half convincingly. I have never yet, managed to get ahead of myself. I thought once moving into premises, we would have loads of stock lining the shelves but we still pretty much make up to order, as there has never been any spare time to simply make up stock.


The NEW catalogue is all ready to be stuffed with an order form and wrap sample , ready to be enveloped and posted out first thing Saturday morning if tomorrow goes to plan!
And then there is the show prep to do - Saturday has been put by for that bit to start. I move all the furniture and mock up where everything is going to go, pack all the samples and products, make copious lists and tick sheets in preparation for packing the car next Friday with show set up on the Saturday!

So it's business as usual, with a poorly boy thrown into the mix!
