Twenty Seventeen

Here we are, beginning of March already! Linda and I are working through the list of stuff that was put on hold during November, December of last year. Mind you, January was relatively busy
supplying our outlets and website orders and getting taxes sorted. We did manage a belated Christmas works do celebration as a thank you to our wonderful crew of helpers. It began with cocktails at the Blind Tiger and then on to No 4 Butchers Row for a meal. Very nice!!! Thanks again everyone for all your hard work.

Theres been a lot of sorting and clearing out on the top floor where we do all the product packaging for our outlets and online orders. Sometimes you just have to be brutal when it comes to getting rid of stuff.
Get rid of the clutter!!! Efficiency is the key, well, thats the idea anyway.

Talking of which, on Sunday we drove to Oswestry to drop off an order for Booka Bookshop. The idea was to combine this with a walk around the hill fort. We decided to do the walk first. When we eventually got to the hill fort after a couple of wrong turns, the weather had become decidedly bone chillingly grim. This alone did not stop us but the sight of a large number of noisy walkers in high vis who were gathered at the bottom of the hill in preparation for a guided tour of the fort did. So, off came the walking boots and back into the car with the heater full on. On our way to Booka, we were suddenly seized  by the desire to visit Cambrian House Emporium to see if they had any Victorian fireplace combinations and use the loo. We came away with a french oak cheese draining box and two oak foldable trestles and they kindly let us use the out of order loo that wasn't really out of order. More clutter I hear you say; but our reasoning on these particular purchases is geared towards efficiency and practicality and most of all a lovely warm way of presenting our products at open studios and events. The oak just glows!!!
