In January, as I said in a previous post, my time is usually dominated by our main Trade Show of the year 'Top Drawer' In Earls Court, London which opens to visitors on Sunday.
This is the first time in 4 years that we won't be attending a show. I have missed the busy lead up to the show, the excitement of being able to show off all the new things you have done, the stand design and arrival of a new glossy catalogue. So it has been a funny start to the year, although again I said earlier, due to SALE orders I have in a way, been too busy to really miss it too.
We will be introducing new products this year but not in the normal big fanfare in January. I hope to find some time to photograph and list these new spotty pillow boxes - perfect for small gifts, wedding favours, jewellery, sweets or maybe even a new advent product! They arrived back in November but I haven't had a moment to get them sorted yet.
I'm also busy moving premises. The building I'm in allows me to make the best use of space available. Something has become available that suits me better, so I am hoping to shed a few pounds moving every single bit of dots and spots HQ on my own! I have until the end of the month to do it which is do-able (just!)
I'm happy to be inside whilst the weather is so awful however, it was lovely today to see the sunshine. I popped home for a late lunch and captured the sunshine pouring in through the sitting room window - such a welcome sight.
